I could use a little help on this one cleaned the reg file and now I can not open sites sent to me in news letters. I get this pop up that says, This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer, please contact your system administrator that would be me. I have tried just about everything even gone to Microsoft and tried to find the right file which seems to be missing is inetcpl.cpl and no matter what I do I can not get this to work or find it in my system. The only other thing I know that I can do is reinstall explorer. I am running XP home and Firefox, any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You

Hi CW,

You can use Windows File Protection to repair the system files if they are corrupted.

Go to Start > Run and type in Run box: sfc /scannow

It launches Windows File Protection. It may takes a while (usually around 20 min) to check the integrity of Windows system files and if needed replaces them. You may need your Windows installation CD.

That file inetcpl.cpl seems to be the Internet Options for IE.

Seems like a repair of IE would fix it or be worth a try, How to perform a repair installation of Windows XP if Internet Explorer 7 is installed - http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=917964
