When i execute hyperlinks on excel (for example i have one cell with a hyperlink to open a pdf file from a specific path) i get the following error :

"This action was canceled due to restrictions on this computer. Contact your system administrator."

Any help ?

It is a security breach so you are getting this warning. Try the following method to avoid this.
1. Always put the contents(files which you are hyperlinking) and the excel file (where u r linking the other files) in a same folder.
2. Now hyperlink and see. Better try this at your D drive where most likely no security is implemented.
