If you are using spybot search and destroy open it and goto immunize icon, at bottom of page uncheck the option that protects ie explorer. then goto file,exit, close currently open explorer windows. then reopen new window and tools should work properly.

If you're not using spybot then try this:

Launch REGEDIT from the Start menu's Run dialog. Navigate to HKEY_ CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\ Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ Restrictions. If you don't find the key, look for the same key but starting in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. In the right-hand pane, look for a value named NoBrowser Options. If this value exists, delete it and restart your computer.

The 3rd option is to try a repair of IE. Go to Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs->Internet Explorer. Double-click on it and when the dialog opens choose Repair from the options provided.

Cheers.

This cane be overcome by running internet explorer and going to tools, Internet Options, Advanced and reset defaults. I was suffering the same problem with the same options, but this solved it. Just means that any special setting that you did have need to be reset.

I have the same problem, no resolution with microsoft (even msn messenger is having problems connecting as well).

My resolution: Install Mozilla Firefox and links are opened again.

I tracked the error message to your post, read replies and here was my answer: if you have MS Anti-spyware stuff, get rid of it + reset IE to default settings (Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Reset...) FIXED.

Cheers!

Easy fix...

Yeah, I was having this problem too. You know what worked? Setting a default internet browser. Evidently Outlook doesn't just pick one from the available options, but rather gives you this dumb message, until you set a default.
