Cannot Open Web Links In Outlook 2007 | Fix It

Quite some time i Cannot open web links in Outlook 2007.  Tried default options-no go.  Error message says:  Operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer, see administrator- I am the administrator. 

This is not affecting IE alone. I have Norton (Symantec)as my antivirus. I have looked at the Trust Center and that did nothing for me. Where is that change?

Also check my earlier post on how to fix hipper link errors in Microsoft Outlook.

If we installed certain third party browser before the issue starts occurring?
Let's first set IE as default browser:
  • Access the Default Programs from the Start menu or Control panel.
  • Click on the "Set program access and computer defaults".
  • Choose "Internet Explorer" option and select "Set this program as default". 
If the issue still occurs, please follow the steps below to reset IE:
  • Open  Internet Explorer.
  • On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  • Click the Advanced tab, and then click the Reset button.
  • On the Programs tab, under Internet programs, click Set Programs,  then "Set your Default Programs", select your e-mail program and click "Set this program as Default". Repeat for Internet Explorer.
  • Click OK and close the dialogs.
We can also temporarily remove previous installed third party browser (if any exists) and that is the cause.
