Ok,

So I am trying to lock down IE web browsing to the extent of blocking every website except a chosen few. I have tried using the Content Advisor and setting the sites I want to be able to visit as trusted (even including wildcards, i.e. *://*.microsoft.com).

I have also googled to find scripts that block everything except the trusted sites.

The problem is that  if the "Users can see websites that have no rating" box is checked, it still allows users to visit any site, if the box is unchecked then it blocks all sites including the "Trusted Sites"

I am needing some direction on how to fix this issue or another direction that I can take to make this happen.

Thanks!

effectivecross--Why are you wanting to make the approved sites "Trusted"?  
Just follow the directions here.

Another approach is to us a proxy server

There are third party programs that will work for you

I am going to go the route of using a proxy. Thank you for the quick response.

Another question. I have a site that i am wanting to add to the exception (https://login.microsoftonline.com) but it will not accept that as an exception. Any suggestions as to why?

effectivecross--Perhaps because it is a Secure site (https), but I really do not know.
