Currently I cannot close Explorer, it comes up with the 'old' ,
........restrictions........contact system administrator. I was tweaking the registry and have now forgotten what I did. I have searched reg edit for "explorer + policies", but can't seem to find the solution. No great drama, just saves me reinstalling and thought if someone out there knows the answer it would save me the hassle.

Hi,

Try this:

Go to Start/Run, and type Regedit.

Drill down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Policies/Ratings
Click once on 'Ratings' in order to highlight it, and hit delete.

Restart the computer.

Good luck,

Do youmean you cannot close Internet Explorer? If so. gpo to start>run and type regedit. Press enter. Navigate to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions
In the right pane, look for this entry
NoBrowserClose

If you find it, delete it.

You must be right Mo, and that also explains why Grizz couldn't find it under 'Policies'.
