    Windows 7 Hyperlink problem in Outlook

    Hi, Recently I have upgraded my computer from Windows xp to Windows 7. It worked well, but when I click on a hyperlink in an email from Outlook I get a message "Operation canceled because of restrictions in place on this computer. Please contact system administrator". So, what did it mean to say? Have you seen this message before? Please help me in this case.
