Unable to open links in email

Not open for further replies.


I am unable to open any embedded link contained in an email. When I click on any link, I received the following dialogue box message. "This operation has been canceled due to retrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." Well I am the administrator. This problem has only occurred within the last couple of days. I can't think what has changed. I am running Avast anti-virus. I have trawled through the various outlook and internet explorer tabs but can't find a solution.

Surprised you can't find a solution. The answer is posted several times a day. Here is the answer again: This is a problem with your Internet Settings. It is not an Outlook error. You need to reset your internet settings in Control panel, Internet options, Advanced tab.
See This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions for more information.
