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...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.

Did you try this?
Uninstall & reinstall Internet Explorer 9

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!
