Internet Explorer settings Security tab are greyed out

Problem:

When logging in as a new user my Internet Explorer Security Settings are greyed out, when I perform a reset everything is working perfect. I don’t use any GPO’s the change settings.

Solution:

1) Login as user with the problem.

2) Reset the internet Explorer setting in the Advanced tab.

3) Export the registry settings of the following key:
     HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\

4) Load the ntuser.dat from the default user as “Default” using Load Hive in Regedit.
     C:\Users\Default\NTUser.dat

5) Edit the Exported .reg file and use find and replace
        Find: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
        Replace: HKEY_Users\Default

6) Import the changed settings.

7) Unload the hive for Default.

Now when a new user logs in the Internet Eplorer settings are correct.
