    Running Excel 2003, I can't create a hyperlink because I am getting this error, "This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator". Since this is my personal computer what do I need to change to make my hyperlink work?


    Upon further research, this is what I did to fix it. : See http://www.slipstick.com/problems/link_restrict.htm#reg2

    Edit Registry, Part 2
    1. Start, click Run, type Regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
    2. Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.html
    3. Right click the value for the .html key and select Modify...
    4. Change the value from "ChromeHTML" to "htmlfile" (or from FireFoxHTML to htmlfile)
