Windows XP SP1a. When attempting to access 'Tools' 'Options' from the
Explorer toolbar, I receice a restrictions error message "This operation has
been cancelled due to restrictions in place on this computer. Contact system
administrator" I am the administrator and I cannot determine how/where to
correct this. I have been attempting to change my web home page and those
boxes are grayed out.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Are you logging in as the network administrator? I've
only seen that message on computers attached to a network
where a group policy is in effect. Being a local
administrator on the machine does NOT override the
network policy. In addition - the policy must be manually
set to not apply to the administrator account. By default
it applies itself to all logins.
