if i attempt to change settings in tools, internet options, i get a restrictions dialogue box stating that "this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact system admin".

I've ran an AV scan which found nothing and am logged on with Admin rights...

any help, thanks in advance

do you have spybot search and destroy installed?

if so:

close IE AND start spybot in advanced mode.

click "immunize"

untick "lock IE control panel against opening from within IE (current user)box.
