Slightly different result when I click hyperlinks in my emails: (Am using

Vista Home Basic & Outlook 2007). When I click on the hyperlink in emails I

get this message "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in

effect on this computer. Please contact the system administrator. I am the

admim!! Have looked through help & microsoft online but nothing. What do I

do? Thanks

Temporary Solution until you can fix this: forward the email to a web-based

account eg. hotmail and you'll be able to follow the hyperlinks there.

Of course it does. Click on My Computer in the Start menu. The window that

opens is Windows Explorer.

Ok, when I click on "Folder Options" there are 3 tabs: "General", "View" &

"Search". How do I go from there? (The next stage of the solution you gave

the link for says "Select the File Types tab" and I've looked under the 3

tabs but there's nothing like that.) Thanks for your patience, Brian Tillman.

Oh, yea. Vista. You'll have to use the Registry Editor and make sure the

Open action and ddeexec entry for the "htmfile" file type is correct. Use

regedit to locate

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\htmfile\shell\open. The "command" key should have one

string value, "(Default)", beneath it whose data is

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome

including quotes and spaces. The "ddeexec" key should have a string value

"(Default)" whose data is

"file://%1",,-1,,,,,

with all punctuation. Also under ddeexec on my PC is a key "Application" with

a string value "(Default)" whose data is "IExplore" (wthout the quotes) and

another key "Topic" with a string value "(Default)" whose data is

"WWW_OpenURL".

Hey Bob C

The "Edit Registry Key, Part 2 in the provided link

http://www.slipstick.com/problems/this-operation-has-been-cancelled-due-to-restrictions/ cured my problems. I had

tried to install both Chrom and Chromium Browsers - was not pleased so

uninstalled but the "chromHTML was still in registry.
