I.E. Problem

  gerdy 12:36 05 Feb 2004

I lost my Outlook Express and address book (msimn. exe and wab.exe files went missing) so downloaded a new copy from microsoft. These are back O/K now but when I try to access Internet Options from Tools I get a message "This operation cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator" Can anyone help on how to recover control please?
Thanks for reading this.Gerdy

Running sfc may help, or depending on os a repair.

I tried a sfc check, loaded Windows (98SE) again over the top,and almost every check that I can think of. I have had one suggestion that downloading from Microsoft has caused the problem, i.e. XP and Win 98SE are not compatable, also that only a complete re-format will remove I.E.6. So it looks like my weekend is sorted. Thanks for the reply Michelle. (I wonder if Netscape gives these problems?)

Spybot was the problem although I have not changed the settings recently.Strange that the problem started by installing I.E.6
Thanks for that link.
