    After installing Spyware Blaster and Spyware Guard, i can no longer check Tools, Options for Internet Explorer. I get a message that says: This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions on this computer. contact system admin. I have admin privledges. Any idea if its either of these 2 programs causing the blocking??

    Hi Brian :)

    Welcome to Wilders.

    That sounds more like Spybot S&D. Do u have it installed on your comp?

    If u do, go to your immunize option and make sure you don't have LOCK IE CONTROL PANEL checked at the bottom.


    Hope this helps.

    I cannot find an immunize option in my version of S&D. All I can do is run immunize??. My Internet options are locked.

    Would appreciate any help
    Thank you.

    Make sure you have the newest version of Spybot installed (v1.2). When the program opens there's a button on the left that says Immunize. Click it and scroll down the page on the right. At the very bottom there's a section called "Recommended Miscellaneous Protections". The very last option which EXACTLY reads "Lock IE control panel against opening from within IE (current user)" should be unchecked to fix your dilemma.
