Internet Connection Sharing Problem

Hi All

I'm running windows 7 7022 and i'm battling to share my internet on this notebook.

I've tried right-clicking on the connection, Properties, but no Share tab.

On the other network cards, i right-click Properties, click Sharing and it says
"Internet Connection Sharing has been disabled by the Network Administrator"

I have logged on using local admin, I have also changed settings on group policy Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> Network Connections -> Prohibit use of Internet Connection Sharing on your DNS domain network to Disabled.

Please help :)
