    I installed IE 7beta2 on the XP Prox laptop and uninstalled it quickly afterwards. Since then IE 6.0 orignal does not function correctly.

    At start up it "an attempt was made to reach a token that does not exist" once it hit OK 50 or so ie instances open. Also I cannot access the properties with in the internet options via the browser? I can right click ie icon and or go thru CP to access. The error states "The operation has been cancelled due to restrictions on this computer…".

    I am part of the admin group?

    Pls advise how I can fix this issue.
