1. Running Win 7 Home Premium.
2. Using Ofice 2003 Professional and IE8
I have seen this problem reported by several others. When clicking on a hyperlink in an email message, I get the following error:
"This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact system administrator.
I am the administrator. Here's what I tried:
IE/Tools/Internet Options/set default program/Outlook.
This fix apparently worked for others, but not me. The only changes that I made were adding Windows 7 Service Pack and 2 critical updates.
Obviously, I could cut and paste every hyperlink into IE, but a) I didn't used to have this problem before I made the changes and b) Hyperlinks are for clicking, not for cutting and pasting.
I hope someone can help.
