Internet Options missing....?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i have another friend who has a dell laptop with centino technology.

now he works at an office and he wants to set some security settings and clear cache and browsing history for his laptop because several people use it.

and he went to tools but the internet options part is gone, not there. so i told him to goto control panel and get in from there. but when he goes into control panel it is also gone. there is an empty space where the icon should be but isn't.

so i told him to do some scans, he did adaware,spybot, and norton antivirus.

Nothing.... its hard to instruct him to do hijackthis because not everyone out in the world knows what we're talking about, i'd have to go look at it some day, but is there anything that he can do?

Re-Enabling Internet Options With regedit
1. Start -> Run
2. Type regedit and click "OK"
3. Scroll to the top and double-click the HKEY_CURRENT_USER folder
to open it.
4. Under HKEY_CURRENT_USER, double-click Software.
5. Under Software, double-click Policies.
6. Under Policies, double-click Microsoft.
7. Under Microsoft, double-click Internet Explorer. If you don't see Internet Explorer, skip to step 9. 7. Under Internet Explorer, double-click Restrictions. If you don't see Restrictions, skip to step 9. 8. You should see a key called NoBrowserOptions, with the value 1. Hold down the right mouse button over NoBrowserOptions to display a menu. Choose "Delete" from that menu and confirm. If you don't see NoBrowserOptions, skip to step 9.
9. Repeat steps 1-8, but this time start with HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE instead of HKEY_CURRENT_USER.

You should now have no trouble accessing "Internet Options" from the "Tools" menu.
Otherwise, if its a work computer, it could be locked down by admin...
