LAN Settings Disabled
Greetings,

I'm using IE 7.0 under Windows Vista (32-bit) Home Premium and have noticed
that my LAN settings are disabled so that I can't change them. If I go to
Tools, Internet Options, Connections and then choose the LAN button, I am
unable to change any of the settings. Any idea as to what it going on?

Thanks in advance!

Try closing all IE windows and use the Control Panel's
Internet Options applet instead. I once had to do that
to make Proxy settings stick and got into the habit of
changing all Connnections settings that way.
E.g. Run... (press Win-R and enter

control inetcpl.cpl,,4

In fact, I discovered that I could do it that way
and still leave IE windows open and they would
then work with the changed settings. YMMV.

Oh. This is Vista? Haven't tried this on it yet.
I suppose it might also be necessary to start
control.exe and Run as... Administrator too.
