    Can't access Options (IE6)

    Someone may read this as Windows XP issue. Since the problem surfaces in Internet Explorer, I'll start here.

    A few weeks ago I performed a non-destructive reinstall of WinXP(H) on my HP computer. I also downloaded and installed SP2. Today I tried to get into IE's options to change some things, and I got hit with an error message the instant I clicked on Internet Options...: The error message: "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." Well, I am the system administrator

    Do you have Spybot Search and Destroy? If so, check Tools > IE Tweaks and see if "Lock IE control panel against opening from within IE (current user)" is on. Turning it off should allow you to access Internet Options again.

    I do have Spybot S&D, but I do not see "IE Tweaks" under Tools. I've check the Help file, but I found no mention of what you describe. BHOs, Browser pages, yes...but no IE Tweaks.

    Apparently you have an older version of Spybot S&D. Do you have an Immunize tab? If so, it should be in there somewhere, see the thread starting at <post#=262223>post 262223</post#>.

    Thanks for the help, Hans! I fixed the problem by downloading the latest version of Spybot S&D and unchecking the boxes.
