Microsoft Outlook 2007. When klicking on links in an e-mail there is a sign coming up that says: This request has been rejected due to restrictions in the computer. Contact the systemadministrator.
What to do??

Hi there

Happy to help

Please close your e-mail program, then download this Fix-It utility from Microsoft:

Once downloaded, please go ahead and run it, then once it's done, please open your e-mail program up and links should finally work properly.

Let me know how it goes – I will be standing by; thank you.

Sorry! No change. The sign is still there.

Hi there

Did you recently install Google Chrome and then remove it?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.



There is a frustratingly well-known issue with Chrome that if you install then remove it, it causes this issue.

What you need to do is simply reinstall Chrome -- you do not ever have to open the program once you install it. You do not need to make it your default; the program simply needs to exist on your PC, and that's it.

Here's the download link again:

Then, once it's installed, you can set IE or Firefox as your default.

To do so with IE, and if you're using Vista/Windows 7, go to Start menu and pick Default Programs.

Click Internet Explorer on the left (or Firefox) then click "Set this program as default"

Then links should work properly; thanks!
