Cannot open links from within outloook

Whenever I try to click on a link in an incoming email, i receive this error message. i then need to highlight the link, and copy to a browser. frustrating.
i installed OPERA, and found incompatabilities. i then uninstalled it, and installed firefox, with similar compatibility problems with other software, so i uninstalled it too. now this problem ocurrs.
I am using IE6  on win xp sp2.
I found a web suggestion to modify the outllook registry entries, which I did, , and that did not work.

Have you reset IE as your default browser? Have you tried a repair installation on Outlook?

Hello LLurie,

Because you have change the default browser from IE to Opera to Firefox, your browser default may not be set, as souseran suggested. In IE, go to Tools > Internet Options > Programs.  Check IE should check if it is the default browser. Click OK. Restart IE.

Hope this helps!

Also, is this a standalone PC or part of a client/server network? Are you getting mail through an Exchange server or through POP or IMAP?

LLurie,

Did you restart IE?  The settings will not reset unless you restart IE.

You may need to register some dll files
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q281679&sd=tech
1. Quit all programs that are running.
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. Type regsvr32 urlmon.dll, and then click OK.
4. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded" message, click OK.

If this does not resolve the problem, repeat steps 2 through 4 for each of the following files (in step 3, replace Urlmon.dll with each of the file names below):

Shdocvw.dll
Actxprxy.dll
Oleaut32.dll
Mshtml.dll
Browseui.dll
Shell32.dll

OR
Run this script if using IE6

I have tried the suggestions listed, and the problem remains.

'The operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your systems administrator."

This is a stand-alone PC, with xp sp2. IE6. I can change anything I need to on the box.
