    Hello. I wonder if you can help me, please. I’m having problems accessing software updates (Flash etc) by single-clicking links in an Excel spreadsheet which has been compiled by an expert - so the problem can’t lie in the spreadsheet.
    On my Win7 laptop, I get an error message along the lines of "Operation cancelled due to
    restrictions in effect on this computer. Contact your system administrator".
    On my XP desktop, I get an error message "Excel is waiting for an application to close to complete OLE action”.</SPAN>
    I’ve run Malwarebytes (free) which reports no problems on the PCs. Can anyone help me please? (Should I have created two separate threads, one for each machine?)
    I've run Hijackthis, DSSbysUBs and GMER and have the reports ready if you need them. Thank you!

    Hello again. A friend from another forum saw this and has posted me the link below. To save what might be unnecessary work for you, I'll try that route first and will get back in a few hours. Thanks

    (You'll see that the link is 'split', so if anyone wants to look at it, you'll have to copy & paste it rather than just click on it.)
