Tools/Internet Options Operation Cancelled

  rawprawn 15:43 06 Oct 2003

I have just downloaded the latest security patch for Internet Explorer. Since then I cannot get into internet Options Via Tools when I am online. I get a message "This operation has been cancelled due to a resriction on this computer. Please contact your system Administrator" Is this correct & if not what do I do to get back to being able to go through Tools. I am the administator there is only me on this computer.

Might be a trojan, do an online virus scan.

Thank you very much, as usual spikeychris has the answer. I changed the registry value as suggested & bingo, fixed. I really can't figure how it got changed in the first place, unless I did it inadvertantly with Spyware blaster in the tools menu for IE. Anyway thanks a lot.
