Internet Explorer - Access Options

By Shanghai Sam ·
I am on latest Version. Dunno what happened, but now I can not access the internet options function. Tells me to access is denied "due to restrictions" on the computer.

I have admin rights. Home computer. Other users are just fine.

I know this must be simple, but no luck finding anything.

First time here. Sorry, do not appear to have many "points" to give...."

Help, thanks!

Unless you're NOT the only one using this PC, my first guess would be either a virus, trojan, or ad/spyware. Get Spybot or AdAware.

Thankssss - I have both Adaware and Spybot. I can not remember the last time I accessed Internet Explorer option, so I actually jussssst De-installed Spybot. No Virus, as they would infect others on my macine (the others are my wife and 2 kids, who can access IE Options without difficulty).

I am sure there is a setting somewhere that got "set". I just need to know where it is!

Spybot was the problem. It has a registry hack as follows.

"The imunizations page in the latest "Spybot" has a check box that says 'Lock IE Control panel from opening from within IE (Current User)'

Checking this off fixed this problem for me.

Hope this helps someone else!
