I am currently using a windows 98 program on my PC and in the last week or two have been encountering a restriction message when i click tools>internet options in my IE. The message reads 'This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.' If anyone has any ideas plz post them to me.
Thanx and peace out.

Hi.

Go to Start > run > regedit

Now to 'Edit' > Search.

Search for a value called NoBrowserOptions, and delete that value in the right pane when found.

Next, press F 3 to search for a possible second entry, and if found, delete that one as well.

Cheers,

Hi tony,
I did exactly what you said but the value 'NoBrowserOptions' wasn't found in the registry. Do you have another idea to help me out?

Thanx,
Jazzie

Yes, I do, but first try this:

Download the attached Remove.txt, and save as (rename to) remove.reg (save as 'all files')

Doubleclick Remove.reg, and answer yes when asked to add the contents of the file to the Registry.

Reboot, test again, and please repost with your results.

Hi Tony,

I am writing to thank you. I read your response to the question about restricted internet options and followed the advice you gave and it fixed my problem.

I had the same problem as well and your advice fixed the problem as well. Thanks.
One other question, what caused this to occur as all was well until just recently?

Hi guys

I have been reading alot of info all different about the causes of this problem.

It appears to be a majority of people have Spybot running that changes the access to internet options, however thios has not happened to me?

Cheers

Thanks Tony. I had this problem with my Wife's computer, and was stumped. I did a google search and this site, and thread was the first match. Your advice worked, and it was so easy. I decided to sign up here so I could let you know your help reached further than just this site.

Thanks again!

IN Spybot, if you go to Tools, IE tweaks, there are 3 boxes to check. If you have Lock IE start page, and Lock IE control panel checked , you will get the restricted from IE. Just uncheck them if you are using Spybot, they are not a security deterrent anyway, only something incase you happen to hit the wrong button or don't want to change your current settings.
