I made IE my default web browser, then rebooted, then loaded an Excel workbook and clicked on a hyperlink, but alas, I still got the error messge:
This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.
I am a senior citizen and slow to change, but if I were younger I would switch to LINUX. I am sick of MS mediocre software. It is amazing how someone (Gates) could get so rich producing such pitifully average, at best, products. Excel is the only program worthwhile
I ran Malwarebytes. It found two simple issues which it quarentined. This produced no change to my problem.
The link you gave me concentrates on the lose of hyperlinks in Outlook. I use Thunderbird and all hyperlinks work; they also work from most all URL's, Geeks to Go for example, they just don't work from Excel or Word (the latter being inferior to WordPerfect so I rarely us Word). Nonetheless, I will try some of the recommended fixes. I will also uninstall Firefox and reinstall it to see if that works. If I do that, will I lose my bookmarks, settings, etc.?
Lastly, the most recent posted log shows some problems - are they something with which I should be concerned?
Also, forgive my MS rant - I'm just a little frustrated.
