control pannel icon missing

  [DELETED] 14:11 12 Jun 2003

i instaled cybersitter and disabled acces to the registry and internet options in the control pannel. Then it annoyed me to much so i uninstalled cybersitter and when i run regedit it says this has been disabled due to restriction by the adminstrator and also the internet options are missing how can i get these back.

Totally reverse what you have done so far

re install cybersitter, re-enable access to the registry and internet options

once you have checked you can get into the registry again, then you can safely uninstall cybersitter again......

if this doesnt work, post back

good luck

When the computer is starting keep tapping the F8 key and choose safe mode.

See if you can get into regedit from here and remove the cybersitter entries.

Backup the registry first.

The internet options when you can get into the registry if the above works. Go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions

Double click NoBrowserOptions and set the value data to 1

Also what operating system are you using?

Correction to the above set the value data on nobrowseroptions to 0.


I have never been near Windows ME but i'm sure it has a system restore. Couldnt you try a system restore?

ME does indeed have system restore but it is notoriously unreliable, in my experience it was only good for 1 month then it went belly up.

not much good really but well worth a try.

i cnt acces the registry in safe mode or normal and system restore is no good it just says cannot restore to this time
