today i tried to access my internet options from the tools menu and a box appeared saying "restriction. this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer, please contact your system administrator" anyone please help
when i typed in run box a message in a box came up "windows cannot find gped.msc. make sure you typed the name correctly, and the try again. to search for a file click start button then click search" tried that but clicking the button did nothing
i take it you are on xp home, as the instructions above i gave are for xp pro, as your problem is normally related to a system setting that has been changed, and this can only be changed in xp pro and not xp home
have you/or someone else used any software that can cause this problem, i.e tweak xp or someting similar.as if you have such software this setting can be changed.
this link can also help as the setting may be disabled via the registry click here
