additional things I have also tried since then:
1. typing "gpedit.msc" in RUN box to see if anything in the IE options have been configured.. but error window " Windows cannot find 'gpedit.msc' Make sure you typed the name correctly..." (I retried it) pops up
2. Right clicking Internet Explorer icon.. "internet Properties"
Result: nothing comes up
Hello! I have a big problem and was wondering whether anyone can help,
I cannot access the Internet Options from Control Panel or Internet Explorer or Run, methods tried:
From IE tools> internet option:
result: pop up saying "This option has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator" (I am administrator and I already tried making new administive accounts but still doesnt work.
From Control Panel:
"Internet Options" selection is completely gone
From Start > Run > "CONTROL INETCPL.CPL" :
this options works on my other computer to retrieve the Internet Options control panel, BUT on this computer it is useless.. nothing happens
I already made sure the "Lock IE control panel against opening from within IE" is not checked
I have ran various antivirus programs and Ad-aware.. there is no problem with those.
Does anyone have alternative ways ? Thank you so much in advance !!
