    Hello to all. Word won't allow me to open any URLs from the document. When I click on the link and hit CTRL, or right click on the URL and select "Open Hyperlink" I get this error message:
    "The operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." I basically have to resort to copy + paste.

    Where would I go to change this restriction? I don't even recall placing it in the first place. I am also the admin of this computer as well. I'm using XP Professional and Word 2002. TIA.

    Found a similar problem by searching Google. Are you using Spybot?

    I am using Spybot. However, that option in Immunize isn't checked off. I'm not effected by the problem in the support article either. Thanks for the reply though. Obviously it's not urgent but just a bit tedious.
