    This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.

    I'm trying to clear my computer to of all the junk and this is what it's popping up saying.

    This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.

    I am the system administrator, however, if I log on in Safe Mode there is another Administrator called Administrator. This doesn't show up when I log on normally.

    I have tried a few things suggested on a old thread here but cant seem to get it to work.

    Help would be much appreciated.

    Go to Control Panel, Add Remove Programs. Then on the left, choose Program Access and Defaults. Open up whichever configuration is currently selected and change the default web browser selection to something other that what is currently chosen. Click OK, then test the link in Outlook.
