    Why can't I copy a site from temporary files and paste it into restricted sites?

    Hello Roncor, and welcome to Vista Forums.

    Not sure what you mean, but when you have the Restricted Sites window open, you will have to open a separate IE window to copy the address from instead. It would be best to copy the address first (ex: from IE address bar), then open the Restricted Sites window to paste it in, or just type the address in it.

    Hope this helps,
