When I go to the proxy settings in MSIE or in Chrome, I get this message: "access to this feature has been disabled by a restriction set by your system administrator"
After Googling a bit, it turns out this is most commonly due to either two registry keys being set, or due to Spybot settings. I checked and I don't have the registry keys, so I turned to Spybot.
The Spybot documentation at http://www.safer-networking.org/en/faq/24.html mentions this:
However, I don't have those options. I'm using version 18.104.22.168, and in IE tweaks, I only see the "lock hosts file" and the custom title options. The attached screenshot illustrates it.Select Tools in the left bar, then IE tweaks.
There you will see a group Recommended miscellaneous locks. Untick the checkboxes in front of both Lock IE... options.
Am I doing something wrong? Or has this changed recently in Spybot, and has the documentation not been updated yet?
Thanks a lot,
