Windows 7: This operation has been cancelled

Windows 7 Home Edition 64 bit
 
 
This operation has been cancelled

I have seem similar post but could not find it after I registered for this forum. Besides mine is a Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit problem combined with Outlook 2007 and perhaps the Internet Explorer 9 beta. I can;t guaranteee it but I believe it happened after I installed the IE9 beta, but can't be sure. Anyway when I open Outlook 2007 and click on a you tube link, I get the message this operation chad to be canceled due to restrictions on this computer. Otherwise Outlook works fine. I can click on other attachments (.wmv and .pps) and everything is fine. I did a system restore but it could not complete. I sent the email to my Gmail and could open the link in both Chrome and Fox Fire. So it seems to be either an Outlook problem of IE 9. I tried to send a bug report to IE9 system but that is an abysmal mess __ can't do it unless you pretty well know what the problem is. So I hope somene here can help. I did do some Google searhces but most seem to focus on Vista or XP, not Windows 7. I do know that you tube requires flash and there is no flash available for 64 bit Windows 7.

Well IE9 is beta after all. Have you thought of uninstalling it, and if that doesnt work to re-install outlook?

It is a lot of work I know

Windows 7 Home Edition 64 bit
 
 

I kept messing around to try and solve the problem. One of the XP fixes if you had deleted Fire Fox was to go in and remove IE8 as the default browser. Well in looking around in Win 7/IE9, i ran into a box that said IE9 64 bit could not be set as the default. Something I did removed IE9 from the task bar and desktop but did not remove it from C:\Programs. So I started IE9 from c:\Program\Internet Explorer and the first box that came up was"Do I want to set IE9 as the Default Browser"? I clicked no and from then on, all has been o.k. You explain that.!
Thanks for the help.

It appears you had no default browser set in your "Default Programs" options at the time you received the error.

I think we can mark this one as solved?
