    I have just installed spybot and spywareblaster. Both programs were exicuted several times and now I am having a problem accessing , TOOLS, ITERNET OPTIONS.
    I am getting a restriction notice stating this action has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator. That would be me. I am the only user of this system. Any recomendations?

    Hi neo8,

    Welcome at Wilders. :)

    Your best shot might be Spybot S&D, start Spybot S&D, click Immunize and remove the lower two checkmarks.

    A similar setting can be found in SpywareBlaster, but that should have another effect.
    Start SpywareBlaster, click Tools, at the Misc.- IE settings tab remove the checkmark before "Disable the IE homepage settings area in the Internet Explorer Bar"

    Regards,

    Pieter
     
  3. THANKS FOR THE SOLUTION (WITH SPY BOT) THE HOME PAGE SETTINGS BEING GREYED OUT WERE REALLY BUGGING ME-THANKS --S.

    Hi newbie here
    lots of traffic on "about-blank hijacks some real some...
    taking a lot of voluntere time heyu I'm a free helper too on the side and these have wasted a lot of my time
    maybe there should be a stickie on this
    I think Paul has something on the method better than this...

    on sbs@d click mode at the top left>advanced and open
    go to tools check all the boxes and they will open on the left bar
    check i.e. tweeks this is where you can control these things

    open another window
    get to tools>internet options> programs and select "reset web settings"
    now make sure the ones on that page are the way you want them
    now go to the general tab
    either bring up the page you want as home page and "select current" or type it in
    DO NOT USE MSN.COM (or your vendors default)
    DO NOT USE ABOUT-BLANK
    select something else you can use and will notice if it is chagned,
    something that loads fast
    now go to spywareblaster > tools and check
    " changes in ie settings home page area..."
    OR
    the one is sbs@d >tools>ie tweeks
    If you use sbs@d you can also check the "lock i.e. control panel..."

    REMEMBER IF YOU CAN CHANGE THESETTINGS FROM WITHIN IE ANYTHING CAN.

    NOW if you are in ie and go to tools>internet options you will get an error message

    BUMMER

    Navigate to CONTROL PANEL> internet options and right click
    make a shortcut It will be on the desktop
    you can drag it to the taskbar if you wish

    NOW IF YOU GET ABOUT-BLANK or MSN.com or your default
    you could have a real problem check it out

    however:
    CWShredder and other fixit tools will reset your home page to either MSN.COM (or the default) or about-blank
    In SAFE MODE you will get the default (usually MSN.COM or your vendor)

    AD-AWARE will give you a couple of LOW prioriity "vulnerabilities" the're NOT
    hilight them to dbl check- do not"fix" them
    but do not set to IGNORE either in case the real thing comes along

    Sometimes these settings get UNCHECKED, still trying to figure out why

    feedback appreciated
