Cannot Access Internet Options w/IE7 & Vista

Posted: 08-31-2008, 04:54 PM

I used to be able to select internet options from the browser and then
would receive the message "This option has been cancelled due t
restrictions on this computer. Please contact your syste
administrator". However, now I don't receive anything and still canno
access the internet options.

I tried to access via the control panel and receive the message "Acces
to this feature has been disabled by a restriction set by you
administrator".

I have my account set as the administrator and I have tried by signin
in as an administrator and no difference.

I have tried to change the restrictions via the registry editor an
HKEY_CURRENT_USER (folder was not viewed) and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE withou
success.

Any assistance would be very appreciated

Do a thorough scan with at least two or more updated malware programs.....

1. Open "regedit.exe

2. Navigate to the following key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Policies/Microsoft/Internet Explore

3. Now delete a key "NoBrowserOptions" or change its value to 0

You may have a security program you recently installed that locks the
current user from performing changes to the internet options. This prevents
malicious web sites from performing changes (behind your back) while
actively using the browser.

Shut down the browser. Go to the start menu. Right click on Internet
Explorer. Go to internet properties. See if you can get into internet
options from there to make your changes.

I have tried a few things. I logged on as an adminstrator and delete
the No Browser Options and I tried accessing internet options by righ
clicking on the icon. I still get the error message.

I read some other threads where people were having issues re
inetcpl.cpl file was not in System 32 file but mine is. When I read th
properties for the file, the "Trusted Installer" user has full contro
and all other users have read and read/execute access.

If I didn't mention before, I have the vista business version and I a
running the CA Security suite that was provided by my internet provider
