IE restrictions

Windows 2000 (with all service packs), 1 user who is Admin, no networking, standalone computer.

Unable to access Internet Options in IE6, keeps coming up with this message: The operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your SysAdmin.

No restrictions have been placed on the computer. How can I access the Options? I tried reinstalling IE6 with no effect.
