    Removed IE and now I cannot open hyperlinks in Outlook 2010


    I was reading an article today that stated there was a vulnerability that, even though IE was not your default browser, access could be gained by clicking on a file of a particular file type associate with IE. Since Microsoft has been encouraging people to not use IE I thought the sensible thing to do was to remove IE from my Windows 10 PC. After doing this I now have a problem where clicking on any hyperlink in Outlook 2010 fails with the following message:This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.I searched the internet and the solutions said to change the HTM and HTML default classes in HKCU to be htmlfile in both default settings. The only problem there is that the defaults are already set to htmlfile. I thought it might be the default browser settings or the default browser settings for the file types were messed up but they were both indicated that my default browser is BRAVE. I even tried to change my default browser to EDGE but that didn't work either. Short of reinstalling IE is there a fix or a registry hack or hacks that I can deploy to restore the ability to click on a hyperlink and launch my default browser whatever that browser might be? I'm hoping that someone has also removed IE and has figured out a way to make hyperlinks work.Any help would be deeply appreciated.

    :)

    Cannot Open Hyperlinks Outlook 2010


    I have scoured the Internet, tried a variety of things, but none have fixed an inability to open a hyperlink in Outlook 2010. I believe this started when I uninstalled Firefox and Adobe Acrobat Reader temporarily.

    Upon clicking on a hyperlink in an e-mail in Outlook 2010, I get this error message.

    "This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator".

    Uninstalling, reinstalling, and changing default browsers (IE, Edge, Chrome, Firefox) does nothing. I am at wits end. ANY suggestions would be very welcome.

    Notes: Opening hyperlinks from Outlook.com works fine. Outlook 2010 as in Office 2010 does not work.

    Thank you.

    Phil
