I have a default install of Windows Server 2003 that is auto updated . Client Machines are Windows XP Service Pack 3 with INternet Explorer 8.

I just created a group policy to add websites to my trusted sites.
Computer Config --> Admin templates -->Windows components --> internet explorer --> internet control panel  --> security page  --> sites

The issue is the policy does not seem to show up on my clients.

As a test to insure the policy was getting to the clients I added a Favorite using the same Group Policy and it shows up on the clients so I am certain the GP is getting to the client machines but for some reason my Trusted Sites are not? Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, I did gpupdate and also I made sure the servers replicated to each other through AD.  I just really cant figure out why they dont get my "trusted Sites". I thought it might have to do with the fact it was IE8 but I am at a loss right now.
