    I keep getting the message: "The operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator."

    I get this message when I click on "Internet Options" after clicking on "Tools"

    I am using Windows ME

    I have a firewall (ZoneAlarm) could that be the problem?

    Please help me, I would like to change some settings on Internet Options.

    Thanks....

    Hi,

    Go to Start/Run, and type Regedit.
    Go to Edit/Find.

    Now do a keyword search for NoBrowserOptions
    When you find it, rightclick this value in the right pane, and choose 'delete'.

    Same for NoFolderOptions
    This one might not be there, but never mind.

    Good luck,

    It was a good tip indeed.
    I had the same problem and it helped me too. Thank You.
    But I'm still curious of what caused this entry on the windows register.
    Was it a virus?
