How do I fix Microsoft Outlook 2007 to enable the use of hyperlinks?

I am having issues with Outlook 2007 not allowing me to click on the hyperlinks. It says something like:
This operation has been canceled due to security restriction in this computer (don't know if this is the exact translation, cause I get this error in portuguese.) Already tried the solution of this post:

But some things explained there do not apply to vista. For example, in folder option there is no File Types tab. Also I already changed the registry values as described and nothing changes. Already tries other solutions as to set IE as default browser and restart. Nothing. If someone knows, I'd be really grateful.

Hello julianopolito,

Make sure to make IE7 your default browser

You may need to register some dll files;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 using Vista and you get an error, run regsvr32.exe from an elevated command prompt. To get an elevated command prompt, right-click on the "Command Prompt" shortcut and select "Run as Administrator".

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):


Hope this helps!

I found a section in windows vista:
Control Panel>Default Programs>Set Program Access and Computer Defaults. There I reset everything to internet explorer and allowed access to everything. Now it works.

I appreciate your answer but I've tried and did not have effect. The other dll's could not be registered, only the first one, and after that outlook kept the same behavior of blocking urls. So the solution was what I told you.

Thank you a lot.

Glad you found a solution.  Did you get the idea to make IE the default browser from what I posted?
