IE9 Adding https:// sites to trusted sites

Strangest thing happened to me today. I got a request to add http://*.wellsfargo.com to the trusted sites list of a computer. Easy fix I though... wrong. Whenever I try to add a site to trusted sites, I get the https:// prefix error. I tried https://wellsfargo.com, https://*.wellsfargo.com and https://testertest.com to the trusted list and got an error every time. Even when I un-check the "require server verification" checkbox. I have included a screen shoot so you all don't think I'm crazy.

What think?

Uncheck the box and add *.wellsfargo.com
(then check the box again afterwards.)
IE has never allowed an asterisk *after* the http or https in Trusted Sites.

Thanks for the feedback. I have tried that and that didn't work either. Also, I was able to add https://*.wellsfargo.com to my own personal trusted sites list...

Hi, awawada. Darr247 proposed that "IE has never allowed an asterisk *after* the http or https in Trusted Sites." The screenshot you have highlighted was a demonstration that this is not the case and was done on my personal machine, not the effected machine. You will see in my first screenshot that I have tried to add http://*.wellsfargo.com with that checkbox unchecked and it still errored.

Very strange I know, but it's happening just the same...

Sorry I was away. Did you try to reset IE9?

awawada, if you mean "reset web settings" in the IE control panel, then yes. Otherwise, I'm not sure what you mean.

No, I had already tried that, but I tried it again just for fun. Nothing.

Hi awawada, thanks I hadn't tried that yet. Sadly, it still occurs even after I downgrade to IE8. I re-installed IE 9 and still have the same problem.

Then I would create a backup & do a Repair Install of Windows 7:

Or you want to troubleshoot more?

Hi awawada,
     I appreciate your help in this matter. And I think ultimately, you are correct, a repair install will be required. But, they are a CPA firm and that is out of the question for now. Thanks!
