Outlook 2003 and a Default Browser

Posted by yitz98 on 17-February-2008

Have you clicked on a link in Outlook 2003 and received this message?:

This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.

The problem is, that for some reason Outlook cannot launch the default browser.  The solution is actually very simple: reestablish the default browser.  I closed Outlook and any browsers and then reopened only Internet Explorer.  I made it the default, closed the browser window, and the links in Outlook would launch in IE.  Since I would rather have Firefox as my default browser, I just switched back the default browser to Firefox and the links now launch properly.
