I tried to remote in a person's computer and login as an administrator but I still could not see the control panel due to the way our group policy is. So just wanted to know if there is a way to open IE7 as an administrator.

Any chance you could tell us the operating system of the target machine? Workarounds vary. A useful article to read would be this one: blogs.msdn.com/b/aaron_margosis/archive/2007/06/28/… (= tinyurl.com/3akygnp ) –  AdamV Jul 15 '10 at 21:26

Right-click the IE 7 icon and click Run as Administrator.

Unless you meant Windows XP, in which case this answer is completely irrelevant. –  Hello71 Jul 15 '10 at 23:10

I came across a weird problem where the Network Connections tab was just randomly disabled after Internet Explorer was started up one morning.
