Hyperlinks not opening in outlook 2007

Does anyone no why when i try to click on a link in my email in outlook 2007 I'm getting a message popping up "this operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator"

I am the system administrator and don't remember changing any effects.

Any help is appreciated.

Re: Hyperlinks not opening in outlook 2007

Same problem here--possibly caused after I upgraded Firefox to version 3beta4. I changed the default browser in 'set program access and defaults' to IE7 instead of Firefox and I found that I could open the hyper link from Outlook 2007. Seems to work now, so hopefully problem fixed! When Firefox releases version 3 again hopefully this problem will be rectified. Hope this information will help others having the same problem.

Re: Hyperlinks not opening in outlook 2007

You receive an error message when you click a hyperlink in Microsoft Outlook?

For Windows XP (Service Pack 1 and higher)
  • Click Start, Control Panel, double-click Add or Remove Programs
  • Click Set Program Access and Defaults
  • Click Custom
  • Under Choose a default Web browser, select Internet Explorer
  • Click OK

For Windows Vista
  • Click Start, and click Default Programs
  • Click Set program access and computer defaults
  • Click Custom, select Internet Explorer and click OK
  • Close and re-open Microsoft Outlook

Re: Hyperlinks not opening in outlook 2007

Go to: Windows XP File Assocation Fixes

Download and run: HTM/HTML Associations (Restore the default associations for htm/html files)

The problem is caused by e.g. using a cleaner that has deleted the default associations in the registry for htm/html files. This one fixes the problem for both XP and Vista!!

Goodluck and have fun using your mail and explorer again!!!

THANK YOU. PERFECT. MUCH APPRECIATED. I had read that the problem could occur with both Outlook and Excel. My issue was Excel 2007 (links in the spreadsheet would not open) and your solution worked.
