Windows 7: Unable to open more than 3 PowerPoint documents at the same time.

Unable to open more than 3 PowerPoint documents at the same time.

As the title says. When I do try it I get the following message:

This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.

I tried to google around but all I found was people getting this error message when they tried to open hyperlinks in outlook which I doubt is related to my problem.

I guess a clean install of the OS would do the trick but I'd rather not go there.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Is your computer on a domain?

If so, you could contact your IT admin to see what restrictions they have placed on your account.

A clean install would mean re-installing all your programs including Powerpoint.

Thank you vixen

Well the thing is I am the IT admin, and this isn't standard on any of the other machines, so I'm pretty clueless of what that could have happened.

Do you think there's restrictions on the user rather than the computer?

I would have thought it concerns restrictions on the user.

I'm no expert on networking or IT admin, but you might want to consider creating a new user account.

You could also check your Group Policy Object Editor.

I guess I'll have to get the user to try on a different machine first to see whether it's the machine or the user account.
