I currently am using mozilla firefox 3.0.

My problem is that I cannot access the internet options in my IE 7.0. It says that my "operations has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator"

But I am the system administrator. So how? I have checked that I am logged in as the administrator. My computer has recently been infected with trojans and viruses. Would that be the reason? How do I fix it?

Also, my IE takes a long time to load up to the "blank" page at the start. The Program opens quickly but takes a long time to load so that I can enter the address. What is wrong?
