Help using Outook 2010

  wrg 16:14 31 Oct 2010

Afternoon to you all.

I am using Outlook 2010. If I click a link contained in an e-mail I get the following message "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator" I am useing a personal laptop, Win7 and I am logged on as administrator. Any ideas anyone?

If it is only that one Email, I would guess Outlook classes it as a security risk/virus/trogan and will not allow it.

You could check the security settings (may be set too high)or if it is an attachment, you may have to save it first, before trying to open it.

No it does it on all links. Do you mean security settings in outlook? If so I cannot find them.

Try on the File tab, Options > Trust Center > Trust Center Settings.

Thanks for responding. I cannot seem to see anything in these settings that stops me clicking on a link.

Well, well well....
Followed the advice with ref to access programs and changed to IE being my default provider and it worked. I can now access hyperlinks. That may also stop me getting that annoying question "IE is not set as you default explorer" Even though I authorised in the response dialogue. Many thanks.
