    Hi,

    I'm unable to follow hyoerlinks in Outlook2007 e-mail messages. When I click
    on a hyperlink, I get and error:
    "This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on your
    computer. Please contact your system admiistrator".

    I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium on a single-user PC, so I guess that
    makes me the SysAdmin, but I heven't a clue of what restriction there might
    be. This problem has just popped up and I have no idea what I may have done
    to cause it.

    Thanks

    Hi Myweb,

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm afraid that didn't help.

  4. Hi cwnidog,

    The error message is misleading in this case, as this is a file/protocol association problem. Follow these steps:

    Click Start, Default Programs and click "Set program access and computer defaults". Click "Custom", select "Internet Explorer" and click OK. Close and re-open Microsoft Outlook.

    I have the same problem but that fix didn't work. What else can I do?

    Thank you,

  8. 1) You might try starting your own thread rather than continuing one
    that died in 2007.

    2) See 1.
