I cannot access Tools/Internet Options in IE6, I get a message saying "This option has been cancelled due to restrictions im effect on this computer. Please contact you system administrator". I am using XP Home, with only one Admin account, which is me, and I am logged on as Admin. Any Ideas Please.

Yes look in the Control Panel for internet options

No browser options.

Open Regedit and search for NoBrowserOptions and remove it.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\Restrictions

Okay fair comment, and Im sorry if I appeared rude, but I was concentrating on the problem (see my other posting re PCA Homepage) that I'm trying to resolve. I hope I didn't cause offence and if I did it wasn't intentional. Have a nice day and thanks to you both for your constructive suggestiond. James

OK now I feel bad. :o)

BTW was it the reg hack?

No, after I posted I remembered that I had activated some security settings in SpyBot S&D and after I reset them and rebooted I had access to the tools option again. But thanks again for your help.
