Some settings are managed by your system administrator

Dell / Precision workstation m66...
January 14, 2019 at 15:22:19
Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit SP1, Intel I7 2760QM 16Gb RAM
When I select the General tab or the Advanced tab in Internet Options the words Some settings are managed by your system administrator appear in a yellow stripe across the bottom of the Internet Options window. The result is one or two settings are greyed out. I have scanned dozens of web pages and suggestions to remove this but none have worked. These include reviewing the Group Policy Editor entries, registry etc. I am hoping someone out there might have a solution. I am using Internet Explorer 11 and I am the only user of this PC and the only entry listed - as administrator - in User Accounts.

"I have looked at dozens of web pages and attempted all the advice given in them, checked Group Policy entries, Registry entry etc etc to no avail"

I need to see these logs & look for clues.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.

If we have to run Farbar more than once, refer this SS.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the Desktop.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt) on the Desktop.
The logs are large, upload them using one of these. No time delays/Captcha-I'm not a Robot/account/registration needed. Give us the links please.

I've looked at the registry and the only entry is "Default" I'm afraid.
Kind regards - Pete

It can be down to a setting in some security program you have on board. For example, it might be blocking your home page from being changed, but there are various other possibilities. If it is this sort of thing then it could be the correct condition.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Or any other small program you happen to have onboard that is in any way connected with security.
