Internet Security Issues on 2003 Standard Edition Server

Posted on 2004-11-01
Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2010-04-19
I inherited a 2003 Standard Edition Server.  When I try to download files a blank page displays.  I've tried going to Tools Options to change the security, but it will not allow me to change any of the settings.  When I logon as administrator, I can download files but not change any Internet settings.  As administrator, it will not even allow me to go into tools options without getting a security error.  Does anyone have any ideas how to resolve my issue?

Thank you!

Can you please post the exact error that you get as that will help troubleshoot.

Have you checked to see if there are any group policies in place?

From a command line, you can run "gpresult.exe" to see what, if any, group policies are in place.

The exact error that I get when logged on as administrator and attempt to go to Tools--Options in IE is "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.  Please contact your system administrator.

With regard to runnign "gpresult.exe" I typed that in on the run line, but it excutes so quickly that I'm unable to read what group policies are in place.

Please advise.

First, I ran gpedit.msc to open the Group Policy Object Editor,  Next, I was able to change the group policy that was causing this issue under Local Computer Policy, Administrative Templates, Windows Commponets, Internet Explorer, Security Zones.  

Thank you for you help luv2smile.
