OUTLOOK “This operation was cancelled”

Outlook ErrorOutlook like a good Microsoft product, is great at giving “No Answer, Answers” I mean errors.  Here’s how I fixed this one.  The error was “This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.”  After implementing ‘fixes’ from many forums, I finally found something that worked.  This download basically will reset some registry settings tied to IE that Outlook unknowingly uses.  (Microsoft keeps it in the family.)

IE-associations  Just change it from .docx to .zip and unzip, then run the .bat file to apply all registry files, unless you want to try each one individually to have a better idea where the problem is.  (WordPress.com won’t allow .zip files, but offers great free blogging, so I’m not complaining…)
