//IE 8/Tools/Internet Options
Posted on 2009-07-11
I'm not sure what I did, but I fixed one corrupted feature on IE 8 and now I can't use Internet Options. Everytime I click Tools/Internet Options/ on IE 8, I receive a Restrictions message: i.e.
This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact you system administrator."
I am the administrator and I don't remember restricting Internet Options and I don't know how to restrict or unrestrict internet options. I can't open Internet Options. Can anyone help me with this?
