Systems Administrator - How to turn off?

    Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I have just installed Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 on my pc, and since then I have not been able to make any amendments to the 'Internet Options' as it says they have been disabled by a Systems Administrator?  And to change the settings I have to contact my Systems Administrator?  This is a Home pc and I dont have an administrator to ask?

     

    How can I know this off so I have full access to my pc?

     

    Any ideas would really be welcomed!

     

     

    Thanks,

    welshboi.

    This forum is for Windows Vista related issues. For problems with Windows XP, please check the resources available at:

    For your reference, I also found some related article which may help:
