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
