I tried to open  Internet Options in
Explorer, but receive this restriction message: "The operation has been
cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this.  . Please contact
your system administrator."

This is because your administrator has set a group or local security policy on your machine that prevent you from altering the IE options.

If this machine is under your own control and not on a domain then you can edit the settings by running the local policy MMC snap-in

Start, Run, MMC.EXE, file, add/remove snapin, Add, Select Group Policy, Confirm local Policy, close, ok

Most IE Settings are under Administrative Templates, Windows Components on User **and** Computer Configuration
