Question Registry- zone maps & domains

I my registry I noticed a lot of bad looking domains listed in the following area:

hkey current user/software/microsoft/windows/current version/ internet settings/ zone map/ domains

What are these listings?
Can I delete them without any problems?
Why does programs to remove history not get these also?

Any other information that might be helpful is appreciated. This is a corporate computer and it needs to stay clean since it has the potential to be viewed by others.

Thanks

Default Re: Registry- zone maps & domains

Do you have SpywareBlaster or other such anti spyware product?

I have SpywareBlaster and that is where it adds the blocks the non welcome domains/sites.

If you goto in IE Tools > Internet Options > Security > Restricted Sites > Sites ... you will see same list.

You actually want these sites blocked as they can potentially add spyware to your PC.

Cool Re: Registry- zone maps & domains

Thanks for the response. Should I remove the bad domains or are they there to tell the computer which sites to block?

I currently use webroot spy sweeper, spybot, adaware & spysubtract. Do I also need spywareblaster?
