    outlook not allowing download
    « on: July 03, 2011, 02:43:40 PM »
    I am using MS Office 2007 with MS Office Outlook 2007 on Win7 for 64 bit.
    All of a sudden, Outlook will not allow me to download anything.  When I view an e-mail and attempt to down load something in it (like a recipe). I get the following message:

       “This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions on this computer.  Please contact your System Administrator.”   

    This happens on all e-mails that I try to download from.   I have not, knowingly, changed anything.  I am the “system administrator”.
    Any help or guidance you can render will be most appreciated.
    Thanks, eddie460

    What do you mean "download"?  Do you mean you want to click on a link? Open an attachment? Something else?

      You just need to make sure IE is set as your default Browser. Go to Control Panel - Internet Options - Programs Tab and set Internet Explorer as the default browser.

        I checked and it is already set for IE as the browser.
        Thanx
