I am running Firefox 2 (my default browser), Outlook 2003, and Internet
Explorer 7. Suddenly, when I click on a hyperlink in an Outlook message, I
get the following error message: "This operation has been canceled due to
restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system
administrator." I have checked previous posts concerning this message -
including my own! - but they typically refer to reseting Internet Explorer 6
to default settings. With Internet Explorer 7, under Tools>Internet
Options>Programs, there is no "Reset Web Settings" option. I tried to revert
to IE 6, but the system would not allow me to do this.

So, I'm pretty much stuck. Any other suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thanks very much for the help. Setting IE as the default browser and then
Firefox as the default browser solved the problem. -- Lee
