    This problem has stumped me for some time. OS - XP SP3 When attempting to access the Internet Options in the Tools menu of IE8 I get the response: This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.

    I am logged in as an Administrator. When I switch to a limited account, I am able to access Internet Options.

    For many reasons, I seldom use IE8. I would however love to figure this out. I have re-installed and tried every trick/angle I can think of

    Any thoughts?

    Even though it refers to IE7, see if Enable/Disable Access to Internet Options Menu - Internet Explorer 7 Misc helps.
