    2007: I am unable to open links in messages I receive. When I double-click on the url, the following message appears" "This operation has been canceled due to restriction in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." My system administrator is not aware of any such restrictions.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance.

    Try this:

    Vista: Select Start | Default Programs.
    XP: Activate the Add or Remove Programs control panel.
    Click 'Set program access and computer defaults'.
    Click 'Custom'.
    Select 'Internet Explorer' in the default browser section or if another browser is your default, tick the check box to make IE available.
    Click OK.

    Thanks Hans. Unfortunately, I get a message that I don't have the right to change the settings. I suppose I will call my IT administrator back, give him your shortcut, and ask him to make the change (unless you know of a work-around).
    Thanks again.

    Even if Hans knows a workaround, you might be better off working with your IT department than against it. Also, the solution might help others in your organization.
