My home PC has the O/S XP Prof'.When attempting to access the "Properties" area of the START button I get a pop-up window entitled RESTRICTIONS with the sentence "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer,Please contact your system administrator."
Also,all my Desktop icons have turned blue as if I was trying to open them all at the same time.
What have I unwittingly done?
Any suggestions would be welcome.
With thanks in anticipation.

Start again in Safe Mode, then try a System Restore to when all was OK.

Right click the desktop, and click the 'Lock Web Items on Desktop' in the 'Arrange Icons by' column twice.
