IE trusted sites

where I work, the domain policies prevent us from making changes to the trust sites in IE. So it is greyed out and you can't scroll through the sites to see if a site is listed.
I googled to try and find if there is a way to see the list of sites, and thought that it might be listed in the registry. I found this registry entry

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMapKey

however, when the user was logged in, there were no entries here. Even though, in IE at trusted sites there is a bunch of things listed
Is there some other way see a list of the trusted sites, or is there a better registry listing?
by the way - my work will only allow IE, we can't use Firefox, or Chrome.

This indicate you have more security permissions than other users.

If you like to add all such sites in trusted sites, Ask your system admin to provide same security permissions to them also.
If you are not interested do this, then ask sysadmin to give same site access to the uses which you have.

you may also check below link for adding sites in trusted lists for all users:

On my Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate 64bit PC with IE 10 the Zones (including Trusted) are in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones
The Trusted Zone is Zone 2.  Unfortunately the websites are not shown by name.  Everything is in Code.

pradeep08_81, the user is using IE10, also, I am not allowed to add the sites. I just want to see what sites are listed. I would like to see the list because I have to put in a request to add a site, and it is not always added.
The way things are at my work, I need to do as much as I can for myself because our corporate people are less than sympathetic towards our needs. So if I request a website to add and it doesn't get done, then I can look at the list and say with confidence that it is not there. Otherwise, I would be guessing that they didn't add the site if it is not working. Usually when it doesn't work, they simply say they did add the site, and blame the website.

try looking at
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains
When I am logged in, if I expand the Domains key, the keys below it are the sites listed in my trusted sites.
I should have been more detailed in my question, because I said that
"when the user was logged in, there were no entries here."
however, I should have included the fact that when I am logged in, I can see the keys below the Domain key. I think this suggests that this is profile driven.

FWIW--On my PC the Domain key has Restricted Sites and Trusted Sites mixed together.  The permission value for Restricted Sites is 4 (0x00000004(4) ) .  That for Trusted Sites is 2.

""when the user was logged in, there were no entries here."  Notice that the key you were looking at then was
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMapKey

The key to which I directed you was
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains  (Policies is deleted)

thank you for the help.
It seems that it is a rights thing because I logged into a pc that I just put the user's image on, and could see the trusted sites at
HKEY_Local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\Currentversion\internet settings\zonemaps\domains
then all the keys beneath domains were the sites listed in trusted sites.
JeffBeall--I have a lot of Restricted Sites.
You are welcome.
