Since a relatively short time, I cannot open any link coming inside messages (I mean obviously, by clicking on them [copying and pasting is the practical answer but's not normal]). It appears a window that says that it's secondary to "system's restrictions" and that I should consult with the administrator (????????). I have tried every normal procedure unsuccessfully. Many thanks and the best greetings for everyone.

Do your security options in outlook prevent links from opening? not sure what version of outlook you use so I can't tell you where that setting is.

2003 Many thanks I have tried to low down security level but it doesn't "obbey". MY DEFAULT BROWSER IS, OBVIOUSLY, MOZILLA. Also I have troubles for using the usual icons that come with Panda Security Scan Pro that do not function either. It's clear that one will not move back to IE just for being able to use some applicactions... Greetings and thanks.

Im having the same problem under Outlook 2007. Im using Firefox as my default browser. Whilst I get the error message - which I seem to think is tied into Internet Explorer, Firefox will eventually open to the original link. I have read that many other people are having the same problem but havent found a solution either. Im also hoping that somebody here might be able to solve it for us.

Thanks indeed.

Thanks to you for your answer because it confirms my suspects. I also desire to find somebody who knows the solution. Greetings

Found one suggestion said it's related to to update # xp kb911567 Here's a few different solutions. The one about multiple browsers caught my eye:
