"This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer" when you click an hyperlink in outlook message

     your outlook throw the above error when you click an hyperlink in your outlook message, there is nothing to do with the group policy eventhough the error looks like gp mismatch..
     This error comes when your system get confused about the default browser of your windows. There are two locations you need to look at...

Restoring REGISTRY settings to default

   After setting up IE as your default browser your need to restore the file association of .html, .htm, .shtml, etc.. This can be done in registry, Let's see how to do that.

   Type regedit in run and hit enter. This will launch registry editor. Expand HKey_Local_machine > Software > Classes find and select .html, in the right pane double click on default and change the value to htmlfile, then give ok. The default value might have been changed if you were having any browser other IE previously.

   Do the same for .htm, .shtml, .shtm to restore their association to default.
