How come I can only get to the Internet if I login as administrator or run the program as administrator?

Q: I can’t get to the internet unless I log in as Administrator or right click and RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR. There is no error message – the address bar displays the target tab with a spinning vista-type icon.
Security is set to Moderate. I’m running Vista Business and IE9. This is a recently new problem after running fine for over a year. I restored to an earlier date.
