I have just come across a strange issue this morning, when attempting to open a link from outlook 2010 a user will get the error message “‘This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator’.”
A common cause of this is the removal of Google Chrome whilst it is still set as the default browser.
To fix this you need to:
- 1. Reinstall google chrome and make it the default browser (restart outlook and check links work)
- 2. Make IE your default browser (restart outlook and check links work)
- 3. Uninstall Google Chrome
- 4. Restart outlook and check links again.
Or run the Microsoft fix it – http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310049
