Links in emails not working. Any ideas?

  Iluaf 22:57 27 Feb 2010


forgive me I am not very technical. When I recieve an email that contains a link, I click on it & it takes me to that page on the net.

For the past few days I have recieved an error message. I can't thinbk anything has changed, but windows did do an automatic update. What can I do to get it working again?

I have a vista & Internet Explorer. My email is Outlook. The error message says 'This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer'

Many thanks,

Thanks for all your help so far. Unfortunately my laptop has crashed today & I've been unable to start it to try these suggestions out, but I do thank you for them &hopefully once I bring my laptop back from the dead, I can try it.

I will open a new thread on the crashing as I've no idea what to do. Would love your help! Am using my hubbys pc now ;) thanks so much :)
