When you use Tools / Internet Options and select the Advanced tab, no options are displayed under Settings.

This behavior will occur if the following registry sub-key, or some of its' sub-key or entries, are missing:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AdvancedOptions

To fix this problem:

1. Open a CMD.EXE window.

2. Type the following command and press Enter:

regsvr32 /n /i /s inetcpl.cpl
