Cant access Internet Options in IE6 under XP

  Barriew 13:47 01 Oct 03

I've just encountered a problem of not being able to get into Internet Options in IE 6. I get an error message of Restricted. 'The operation has been cancelled due to restriction on this Computer.'
I have three accounts on this PC - all Admin level - and only this only affects one account! Any idea where the lock is?

Open up the registry and go to hkey_current_user/software/policies/microsoft/internet explorer/restrictions

If a value called NoBrowserOptions exists, delete it and restart the machine.

Thanks Spikeychris - that fixed it. Any idea what would have caused that? I didn't conciously set that parameter.
