I am running Internet Explorer 6.0.29 Sp2. When I select Tools / Internet
Options -- I get an error message - " This operation has been cancelled due
to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system
administrator".

I am the only "User" on the system and when I go to Control Panel / User
Accounts -- I (the only account ) am identified as "Computer
Administrator".

How do I "un-restrict" the Internet Options function?

Thanks, Dick

Wes, the Ctl Panel / Internet Options work around works great.

I am not technically competent enough to try to correct via the
"NoBrowserOptions" registry key modification -- I would probably lose my
entire system.

I am running Spybot S&D ( I think there was an update to this in the last
day or two). I do not understand how to "disable" it and if it is disabled
with the function work for IE? Is this another "work around" ie - disable
S&D and then enable it?

Did I do something to mess up the NoBrowserOptions or ???

I would like to fix it permanently -- suggestions?

Thanks, Dick
