I am using Windows 7 and OUTLOOK 2007

when I receive emails from Microsoft RSS feeds or other with PDF or (http, www or utube) link attachment, when I click to open attachment, I always receive a note in a window in the middle of the screen saying:
'THIS OPERATION HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO RESTRICTIONS IN EFFECT ON THIS COMPUTER...PLEASE CONTACT YOUR SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR' I am the owner and administrator...

Please show me how to solve this major problem..

thanks

This is a problem with IE and Windows, its not an Outlook error. You need to reset your internet settings in IE's Tools, Internet Options, Advanced tab. (Or Control panel, Internet options, Advanced tab). If it occurred after uninstalling Firefox or Chrome (and any program that opens HTML files) you need to repair the registry.

If resetting the Internet settings doesn't work (and they don't seem to for a lot of users), seehttp://www.slipstick.com/problems/this-operation-has-been-cancelled-due-to-restrictions/ for other things to try. Most people tell me that " Edit Registry part 2" was the fix they used.
