Hi, I can't click on any links that are in emails I recieve in Microsoft Outlook 2010 I am running windows 8. The links are in email newsletters that I recieve and have been recieving before and after I got Microsoft Outlook 2010 and Windows 8 a year ago. I went to my web mail for my internet provider and can access the links in the same newsletters in there. In Microsoft Outlook when I click on a link in one of these newsletters I get a message; "The operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator" I reaalize that is me, but I don't know what to tell me :) I have the email address of these newsletters in my contacts in Microsoft Outlook and I have done the settings in "Junk Mail" and "Rules" in Outlook to allow them. This was working yesterday but today is not. I did not change any settings that I am aware of. However, yesterday I did an update on Adobe Flash Player and inadvertenly must have checked download Chrome I uninstalled it in control panel. Hope you folks can help. Also many thanks to "XPUserForReal" for his help on August 10 I couldn't find the Select a best answer icon. Really dumb huh! HelenT

✔ Best Answer
Have you by any chance installed Google Chrome at some time, then uninstalled it?
Uninstalling Google Chrome will cause that error, (although there are other causes too) but whatever caused it, the result is the same: the Registry has incorrect entries concerning HTML links and associations.
