Outlook 2007 Blocking Links

I have found this morning that Outlook 2007 is blocking all links to web pages. I haven't changed any settings so what could have happened? Any help please?

I am attaching below the message I get and I am the administrator.

Hi Koolkat,

Thanks for your reply. I reset the IE9 settings but that didn't help.

Before trying the Fix It I had a trawl of the internet and I found a page that linked the problem to Google Chrome. This morning I downloaded an update for Flashplayer and Google Chrome downloaded with it. I don't want Chrome so I deleted it. Apparently deleting Chrome alters the registry and stops Outlook linking to the internet. It had not occurred to me that there might have been a connection and on the website there was a link to download a file to correct the problem so all is working as it should now.

Thank you for your help and I apologise to all those who might say I should have looked around the internet in the first place!
