Office 2007, cannot open hyperlinks

Hello,

one my users is experincing this error message,

"this operation has been cancelled due to restrctions in effect on this computer"

when he tries to open any hyperlink in the office 2007 suite. He cannot open any hyper link both Outlook and Word. He is set to administrator so he shouldnt have this problem. I am thinking about reinstalling Office, but I would like to aviod that if possible.

does anyone have a quick solution for this?
