    Error Message in Word 2003

    Got this error message after pasting a recipe page from the internet to Word 2003. I was trying to delete some links as I don't need them on the page.

    The message is "This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator."

    This is my home computer so I must have something set to cause this message. Can someone help me get rid of this. I have seen this a few times lately and don't remember the other instances.

    When you paste from a browser to another program you also paste links. The settings on your computer do not allow Word to connect to those links so you get an error. If you highlight everything, Ctrl A, you should be able to delete all the links in one go from the Edit menu.

    cheers, Paul

    I will pay attention to what I am doing the next time this happens because I don't think it was just pasting into Word.
