Default Win XP Pro - IE - Tools>IE Options> Denied Access?


Any help or idea how to fix this problem would be much appreciated, thank you.

Each time I try to access IE 6.01 Internet options under tools from the browser window, I receive the message : ( please view attached access_denied.gif file )

As I'm not very well versed on XP, I'd appreciate any ideas how I can fix this problem please.

I assume it has something to do with the global Admin settings, but not sure, where to go, how to fix or what I'm looking for!

Is this computer a member of a domain?

As far as I'm aware no...

The PC is not hooked up to a network either, it's a stand alone system.

The other thing that may be of assistance, is that when the OS boots, it doesn't ask for a p/w at the login screen, it just enters via the default user.

I did a <CAN> & looked under users & I'm the only one listed there.

Just had a customer ask me the same thing the other day, and I had no answer for them. So please someone post a fix! :-)

Are you sure there's no viri, spyware, or rogue program affecting your browser?

Can you post a copy of processes goin on in task manager when you try to access this part of IE?

also: what happens if you log on with your admin account?
