Hyperlinks in e-mail don't work

Dear Experts,

Hyperlinks in my e-mail messages don't work. There's no reaction to the
mouse click. Anyone know what causes this?

Sincerely,

Karl

After installing ie7, my Outlook links in received mail don't work. If I
click on a link, the program stops responding. How do I correct this problem?

If an e-mail contains a link, and I click on it, I get the message "This operation has been cancelled, due to restrictions on this computer. Please contact your system administrator".
It is not a restriction on the computer I think , since if I use Windows Mail instead, the links in received e-mails then work.
And in answer to the obvious question why don't I stick to Windows Mail - I use Outlook because I want my diary/calendar/contactstasks and e-mail all in one place.
Any suggestions for curing the prolem will be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone know anything about this? I don't know if it is because I
installed the new Explorer 7 or not, but when I get any e-mail in my Outlook
Express Box, I am unable to click through the links. But in my OUTLOOK box
they DO work. I've tried EVERYTHING. I also have McAfee Antivirus
Protection but it is only on this desktop that the Outlook Express hyperlinks
don't work.
And I've only owned this desktop for i month.
Thanks

My operating system is Windows Vista and I am using Microsoft Office
Professional 2003. Just recently, when I try to open any Internet link
contained in an incoming e-mails a box entitled 'Locate Link Browser' opens.
Some other links in Outlook do not work either, for example the link to
Microsoft Office Online is not responsive at all.

I would be grateful for any help.

Brian, I have the same challenge and I read your suggestion. I don't have
option, "Reset Web Settings"???? Can you help?

I can send a hyperlink in e-mail no problem... I'll send to myself and when I
hit the hyperlink... I get the "save as" screen.

I want to hit the hyperlink and go the the web site. What setting do I have
set wrong?

I'm working with Office 2003 Pro.
My Mail fomat setting is> Compose in this message format: HTML

Recently, I started having problems when I click on a hyperlink in e-mail
messages I've been receiveing. I'm using Outlook Express 6.0. When I receive
an e-mail message containing a hyperlink to a website, when I click on it,
all I get is and audible (ding ding) and it doesn't go to the website. It
just does nothing. Any assistance in resolving this problem would be greatly
appreciated! Thanks!

I have Outlook 2003, Windows XP Home, and IE 7.0.5730.13. Auto Spell before
sending e-mail no longer works. All Hyperlinks in e-mail automatically go to
my default home page. I have tried going into IE - tools - internet options
- programs but there isn't a "reset web settings options", and I don't know
if there was it would correct these issues. I received a couple of IE
updates in the past week or so, and that's when the problem started. It's a
real paid to open up Notepad to try and find the hyperlink to copy and paste
into IE.
Help!
Thanks Moira

I know this is nearly a year latter but the thread is relevant to me today.

A few days ago I loaded Avast 4.7, it loaded up OK and my computer rebooted.
It went into, or I elected for, a system scan prior to XP opening. During
this process Avast found this, Win32:dialer-669 (Trj), the infected file was
at C:Program FilesInternet ExplorerBTOW Shared Filesbtwebcontrol.dll –
Avast asked me what I wanted to do and I elected for option 1 (delete).

Avast continued and it found another occurrence of Win32:dialer-669 (Trj),
and I was asked again what to do, this time I elected for Repair, Avast
couldn’t fix it so it asked me what to do again - but, I selected the repair
option and then started to write down the infected file path, and the second
list of options scrolled up the page and before I could note the file path,
it started C:System..... but that's all I got.

Avast completed the installation and all seemed well.

I use Outlook, from Office 2000, and when it opened up I got an error
message, so I re-installed/fixed Office 2000 from disc and the error message
problem was sorted. The only problem is this; I am now unable to open up
links contained in e-mails.

I've reset my web setings but no change - I'm assuming that the system file
I deleted is causing my problem so all I need to do is replace it, but I
don't know what is missing - can anyone help me?

Thanks for reading this, even if you can't help me.

PS I have discovered that if I forward the email from my inbox, when the fwd
e-mail window opens the links then work OK, an error message opens up but it
gives no clues as to the cause, its just a message sayin there was a fault.

Windows XP SP2
Outlook 2003 SP3
For the past couple weeks I’m experiencing problem with opening saved e-mails.
If I take an e-mail and save it on my desktop in .MSG, and they try to open,
it never opens up.
I only see another new process starting in task manager.
Reinstalling the whole office or doing system restore doesn’t help.
It happens only to .msg saved e-mails. Everything else works fine.
Any ideas?

I tried reset web settings and it still didn't wo

recently links in e-mails have stopped working along with some links in the
bars at the top.
This message appears:
"The operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this
computer. Please contact your system administrator."
I am the only user of the computer, so I must have changed a setting but am
not aware of it and certainly don't know how to change it back.
Please help

Use Outlook (2003). Always able to click on hyperlinks in e-mails, but now
get "not allowed on this computer message". Only change I know of XPSP3. I
want to fix this.

I'm also having this same problem. I am also using Windows 2000 with Office
2000 small business. I've updated everything and still had no change in my
email hyperlinks. Is there a patch that fixes this? I went throught the KB
and found article 281679 that seemed to match the problem I'm having, but
some of the parts of it didn't apply.

Suddenly, hyperlinks in OE e-mail messages don't work, e.g. I can see the
URL in the dialog box at the bottom of the screen, but it doesn't open the
browser. I'm not sure, but this may have started after I downloaded IE 7
Beta 2. Has anyone encountered this problem?

========================

You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape.
If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40.
If it moves and shouldn't, use duct tape.

Whenever I clink on a hyperlink in my e-mails, I get this message:

"This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this
computer. Please contact your system administrator."

I reset everything as mentioned in other posts, but to no avail...any other
tips? Thanks in advance.

I get hyperlinks in OE6 and they don't work. I've just changed from
Thunderbird back to OE6. What can I do to fix this?

Thanks,
Mike

I'm sure this has been addressed, but I haven't found it in a search. I'm
running Outlook 2007 and it worked fine with XP - since I've upgraded to
Windows 7, I can't select *any* files in explorer and send them via e-mail.
Nothing happens, then I can't get Outlook to start under any circumstance
unless I reboot.

I need to create a new e-mail, then select the files...and it works fine,
but it's a giant PITA. Any help:

Go to this site and run the Fix.

It worked perfectly for me (I used the 'Fix it for me' option).

My wife and I both use Outlook 2010 for e-mail on a Dell Inspiron running Windows 7-64 bit. I am an Administrator and, supposedly, she is too although when I call up her start page there is no administrator tools tab to run. But more importantly, when she tries to run a hyperlink that she receives in an e-mail, this message comes up..."This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." I have no problem running that same hyperlink when I access it through my Outlook account.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Scott.

I use a US keyboard to communicate in multiple languages. For languages with
special characters (like ä or é) I usually use Alt-0XXX codes. In most
programs, this works fine (I believe this Unicode recognition is built-into
the Windows keyboard input system). However, ever since I upgraded to Outlook
2007 SP1 from Outlook 2000, I can't do it in e-mail. Alt-0228 results in
nothing, and Alt-0229 results in a tab character.
Is this a known problem? Is there some setting or registry entry I can
change to make this work? I'm at a loss for where to even begin
troubleshooting this problem, as it works fine in most other programs.

I am not new to outlook, but I don't know what to do. Recently, Outlook will
not send e-mails. I get a variety of messages, and essentially they say there
is an interuption and/or a problem with my isp.( error 0x80042109) My isp is
comcast and they only service outlook express; they suggest calling MS and MS
wants money. I refuse to pay for help with outlook: A few years ago I was at
a MS tech meeting(as a biz user) and a man got up to speak. He said more
people have cursed his name than anyother person on earth. He was a
co-developer of Outlook.

I also recently downloaded IE7 and since then, I have had several problems
besides Outlook. A while back I had download IE7 beta, but had to remove it
because it interferred with my HP Scanner. I, with no knowledge, assume it
is IE7causing all of my new problems. Should I simply remove it and reload
IE6?
All I want to do is get my e-mail, do my work and go to bed. It is now
12:48AM and I am curisng my computer. I am sleepy and need to get up in the
morning.

PS. I know I could use other e-mail systems and I could use firefox.
However, I use outlook for contacts and other biz functions and would hate to
give it up
