    Hello,

    I am hoping someone can help me with a problem that just suddenly appeared on my system.

    I had installed the new releases of both Opera and Netscape Navigator to see if they had improved any since the last time I had tried them.  I decided I still liked IE6 better and uninstalled them both and deleted their registry keys with jv16 Power Tools.

    Well, after that my problem appeared.  When I am reading my emails in Outlook 2002 (XP) and there is a link I want to go to I get the following message: "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.  Please contact your system administater."

    I have tried to repair/reinstall Windows XP Home and Windows 2002 (XP) Small Business which includes the Outlook 2002 (XP) software.  This has not helped.

    I have checked all the security settings that I can think of and as far as I can tell (in my limited knowledge) they are all ok.  I also checked my login and I am the only one on the system with system administrater privileges.  There are no other users on the system but me.

    If anyone can help as I have come to a dead end, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Kent

    You're welcome.

    I just noticed it, and remembered the MS article.

    Cheers,
