This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions placed on this computer - outlook 2007 windows 2008 server

I have looked at the other answers available but I am much more of as novice on the windows 2008 server (alas I set it up and I am the administrator).  Not sure what a GPO is and don't think I've set any up.

This seems to be a new problem, so something seems to have changed yet I don't know what that is.

Thanks

To find out if any GPO is applied to your server, you can run the tool "rsop.msc".
You can run it by clicking on your start button and type "rsop.msc" into the search field and hit enter.

This will bring up a little wizard after which you will get an overview of any GPO settings applied to this server and which GPO it is coming from.

This will at least let you know if your problem stems from a GPO or not.

In almost all cases I find that the Reg Fix towards the bottom of THIS page will the issue.

will this fix work on my windows 2008 server?  For all users who log on via terminal services?

Does it matter that this is a server not a stand alone computer?

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

So this happens when users are logged on through RDP? What exactly are they trying to do when this occurs? And does this error also occur when you log on as an administrator?

If this occurs when clicking a link in an email, and you have installed and uninstalled Chrome, then the regfix mentioned above will (should) correct it. The issue is generally caused by the Chrome installer changing HTMLFILE to CHROMEHTML, and not changing it back when the program is uninstalled. A good reason never to install it in the first place.

I will check it out as administrator.  On the regfix, do I have to change the htmlfile type for  every user or will it be sufficent to just replace the file type on the C drive, My OS is standard server 2008

a.  As administrator, I did not have this problem and the links worked.
b. To cure this problem for other users logged into the server, (i am operating a windows 2008 standard server 32 bit) i ran the regedit as administrator,from the recomended page above, I  Logged back in under my user name and the problem remains.

Do I have to run the regedit in some fashion for each user?

The registry fix is for HKU i believe. Put it in the user login script and let it run that way?
