Sure Click blocks localhost in Internet Explorer

HP Recommended
HP ZBook 15u G6
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a local web server runnning on my laptop (using XAMPP).

The server is working correctly and I can successfully access pages via Chrome, Firefox and Edge using http://localhost/.

However, if i try to access pages on this sever via Internet Explorer, I get a HTTP 403 Forbidden response and a message at the bottom of the window "HP Sure Click has blocked content from 127.0.0.1, as defined in the current configuration."

The only solution I have found is disabling Sure Click, which allows Internet Explorer to work as expected.

I have tried adding localhost and 127.0.0.1 to the list of Trusted Sites in the Sure Click settings, but to no apparent effect.

Is there a solution other than disabling Sure Click?
