Hmmm, one of those 'how the hell did that happen?' ones. I have lost access to internet options, I just get a message saying 'operation cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer, contact system administrator.' I'm running IE6 on windows 98 and needless to say I am not on a network so I suppose I am the system administrator! I don't go in there very often , just to dump the cache occasionally, but I'm pretty sure I've accessed it since installing IE6. I guess I'm looking at regedit here but where and what? Any ideas please?
