Hi,

I think the issue is  with the correct automatic configuration script address.

Click  on Tools menu,
Click on  Internet Options,
and then click the Connections tab.
   
Click Settings or LAN Settings.

 In the Automatic configuration dialog box, verify that the Use automatic configuration script check box is selected, and that the address is correct for your automatic configuration or automatic proxy URL.

Hi,

Is this computer part of a domain?
If so this could be done to a GPO (Group Policy Object)

If not then log onto the admin profile as kirankkhbl stated and see if the options are not grayed out then on your profile

right click the IE shortcut --> Advanced --> run as administrator

If they are still grayed out let us know.

Delete "Internet Explorer" Folder on below path

C:\Users\<User>\AppData\LocalLow\Microsoft
C:\Users\<User>\AppData\LocalLow\Microsoft

Davy999, be careful if you do that because more items reside in that than just your IE data. Your Microsoft Outlook files also reside in that location.
