Stopping the windows :The current webpage is trying to open a site in your trusted sites list, do you want to allow this

Hi

We have windows 2012 DC and Windows 7. We do have a website and it was not opening.
I did GPMC.msc  went into User configuration-Policies-Administrative templates-windows components-internet explorer-Internet control panel-security page.

Double clicked site to zone assignment list- under options- enter the zone assignment here - show.
Entered the web page details as follows:
 *.test.com
https://ww.test.com

Now when I click the website on the workstation I get a windows with security warning ,
 The current webpage is trying to open a site in your trusted sites list, do you want to allow this .
If I click yes the website open successfully.

Is there a way to stop this window pop up, users are getting confused whether to say yes or no

Please post me step by step  tutorials to sort this

Thanks

Here is how to change that in IE:

1.Select the Gear in the upper-right corner of the screen or the “Tools” menu if you have the menu bar enabled, then select “Internet Options“.

2.Select the “Security” Tab.

3.Choose “Trusted Sites“.

4.Select “Custom Level…”

5.Scroll down to where it says “Websites in less privileged web content zone can navigate into this zone.” (near the bottom)  Check “Enable“ and click OK.

Now the annoying message should not appear any longer.

Please see the attached Snapshot of the GPO
On the same GPO- User configuration-Policies-Administrative templates-windows components-internet explorer-Internet control panel-security page.

When  I clicked the security page , I can't see the ALLOW WEBSITES IN LESS PRIVILEGED WEB CONTENT ZONEs to navigate..."

So clicked the Trusted sites zone and I can see the WEB SITES IN LESS PRIVILEGED WEB CONTENT ZONES CAN NAVIGATE - ENABLED

When I click down through Internet Zone  till  Restricted sites zone The "WEB SITES IN LESS PRIVILEGED WEB CONTENT ZONES CAN NAVIGATE"   is not enabled.

Please suggest where do I need to enable these setting.

Thanks

I can't  do this on the IE  and the users don't have access to the Internet menu. We have 600 users and this needs to be done through GPO
