Hi, for some reason when I try to click on a link within my email messages I get an error message from Microsoft outlook - This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator. Using Microsoft Outlook 2010. I have checked all security and email settings and cannot see where this is error is coming from. Can anyone help please or point me in the right direction? Thank you in anticipation.

I have installed Chrome - just checking it was running ok, have made it my default browser, reopened MS Outlook, chose an email at random - your last one in this case and clicked on the link with the same results. I feel a little reluctant to spend more money on this problem which has no resolution so far.
its ok, its optional else we work through it here, remember there can be multiple causes for this so we are ruling them out.Which version of windows do you have?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Windows 8 upgraded to 10. It was all working fine until a couple of days ago. If I copy the link to my browser which was Microsoft Edge I could go through without error. It must be a setting somewhere but I don't know where else to look.
ThanksCan you download this file and run it please the steps on screen and when done, restart and tell me please if you still have the issue.

Hi Richard, seems to have done the trick, but do not understand why I should have to download Chrome if I don't use it or was it down to a bug fix? In any case, thank you for resolving this.
