some controls grayed out in IE7

By callupchuck ·
I have a pc running IE7 and I am logged in under admin priveleges. I started getting a few popups from time to time. I went into the internet options to make sure that popup blocker was still enabled and found it to be grayed out and unchecked. A message below it states that "some controls are set by my administrator".

I suspect something in the registry is amiss but not positive. I have run several recommended scanners all of which, except one, comes up clean. The Onecarelive scanner said I was infected with Bruntok, but that it was cleaned succesfully.

Any suggestions as to why this is happening in ie7 and what I should do to fix it?

Is this a personal computer, or a company computer? If the latter, most likely that's the issue. The popup blocker is set through group policy.

Try reinstalling it to see if you get the options back since the malware was removed.

I found the entry in the registry and was able to get control back. BTW, It's My personal PC for My company ;-)
