HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains

Subkeys (names are the websites) will have either a DWORD value of 0-4. Values of a "2" are Trusted Sites.

You could use a Logon Script to export this information, or if you just need a peek, use Remote Registry to look for thier key (the logged on user of a Remote PC) under HKEY_USERS\<SID>...

Or mount their Registry Hive....

the certs are listed in internet explorer -- options -- content -- certificates

if your looking for the actual cert (such as in a profile)... they end in .cer
try searching you location for files ending in that
you may need to make sure hidden and protected files are visible

also just a general search in windows for 'certificates' will provide some direction and references the
certificate MMC snapin
and minimum permissions needed

Hi
this information stored under regedit in fallowing path
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Example : if user have google.com as trusted sites then you will found a reg folder in registry mention below  
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\google.com]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
if you want to know each users trusted sites information then easiest way is create a script to export this information and  place this script as a user login script and when user login you will have this information !

Example : reg query "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\
ZoneMap\Domains"

And my answer was exactly what you are asking for... That's the only way to see the Trusted Sites..... Is there a part of it where you are not following what I have suggested?
