After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more irmalommen 6/3/09 4:46 AM
I have uninstalled Google Chrome and now the links in an e-mail don't work any more. Get a essage like "this acction is stopped because of system limets. Contact your system administrator"which is myself!
After installing Google Chrome again, using Internet Explorer as my default browser the links in the e-mails are wrking again! In the mean while my computer is very, very slow!
How can I reach Google Chrome with this problem?
Thank you,
Irma

Have a look at the windows task manager and see what process is using the most resources.  If you aren't using Chrome anymore, it is unlikely to be a Chrome issue.
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more irmalommen 6/3/09 7:15 AM
It is a Chrome isseu! I have reinstalled Chrome, set IE as my default browser and the links in my e-mail messages are working again!
If I uninstall Chrome, the links aren't working.
I think while unstalling Chrome one or more .DLL needed in Outlook are removed too, only I have no idea where to look for this.
Thank you,
Irma
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more sprudd 6/3/09 7:19 AM
Can you post the exact error message then we may be able to help a bit more.  It's a bit vague at the moment.  Did you have Chrome as your default browser when you tried the first time?
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more irmalommen 6/3/09 7:36 AM
Yes, I have tried everything. When I use Chrome as my default browser there is no problem, with Chrome installed and IE as my default browser there is no problem too. The problem starts after uninstalling chrome. I live in the Netherlands and have therefore a Dutch system, the message I get while clicking a link is "Deze bewerking is geannuleerd vanwege systeembeperkingen. Neem contact op met de systeembeheerder". In English something like: "this version has been cancelled because of system restrictions. Contact your system manager" So I have to contact myself to solve the problem only........I can't!
Thank you,
Irma

By the way, I use Vista Business if this is of any help.

Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more sprudd 6/3/09 8:06 AM
not sure how useful this is but have a look - seems like it's a corrupt registry key in IE.  Anyway take a look and try the recommendation:
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more nondescript 6/3/09 8:21 AM
Restore registry settings in the User Profile
1. Click Start, click Run, type Regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.

2. Locate the following subkey:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.html

3. On the File menu, click Export.

4. In the Export Registry File dialog box, enter HKCU_Classes_HTML_Backup.reg and click Save.

Note: This will create a backup of this registry key in the My Documents folder by default.

5. Right click the (Default) value for the .html key and select Modify...

6. Change the value from "ChromeHTML" to "htmlfile"

Repeat steps 1-6 for .htm and .shtml keys if they exist, remember to change the name of your backup file for each export.
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more irmalommen 6/3/09 8:35 AM
I will try this tonight and will let you know if it works.
Thank you for your help,
Irma
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more irmalommen 6/3/09 8:51 AM
I couldn't wait till tonight......had to try it and...............it works!!
Thank you so much for your help!
I think that this solution also need to be posted in the Dutch Forum. Saw several messages about this problem there too.
Again, many thanks,
Irma

You are welcome.  :)
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more keeneye 6/24/09 9:06 AM
I followed the steps above from nondescript and still get an "application not found" whenever a facebook link comes up.  I used to trust Google products, but no more.
I'm running Vista, using IE as default browser, have uninstalled Google Chrome.  What gives?
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more MSDL 7/14/09 5:15 AM
The solution provided by irmalommen sorts out the problem where the following is true (just feeding the search engines):

Application: Microsoft Outlook 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista Business Service Pack 2 (SP2)
How to recreate: Try clicking any web link in an email
Message from Outlook "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer"

Hope that this helps other people find this solution.

I have used irmalommen's suggestion and still get the same message. I uninstalled Chrome a few weeks ago and lo and behold this rubbish starts happening. I am starting to worry that Google are getting too commercial and gonna become another big siftware company. I am using XP service pack 2 with Outlook 2007. Can anybody help please?
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more Makemewiser 7/29/09 4:32 PM
Success - I just used sprudd's recommended link and it worked - thanks sprudd :-)      
I followed the instustions under Set Program Access in Control Panel.
I don't understand all the other IT jargon in this post & the link explains it clearly to the unlightened among us.

My problems started hen I uninstalled Google Chrome, and I found I could not access my hyperlinks in Outlook 2007 home version.
After searching net, via microsoft help I eventually came to this help page.
I followed instructions, and hi presto, the hyperlinks are working again.
Many thanks to all those who have the knowledge and the willingness to help others.
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more bbsurveyors 9/12/09 4:37 PM
nondescript's registry key revisions solved the problem.
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more woolardp 9/15/09 8:35 AM
Can't change the default browser to IE.  When opening Chrome the Make Chrome the dafulat browser if grayed out.  Can't change to IE.  I keep going into IE and selecting default browser but it keeps being whiped out.  Any ideas?  I can't work with the registry key solution as I do not have admin rights to the computer at work.

Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more dmarz911 10/25/09 9:59 PM
I have the same problem. Installed CHROME took it off in about 5 minutes, hated it, then loaded Windows 7 the next day, also installed IE8, but email hyperlinks won't work. Did same with wifes computer (Windows 7 and IE8) and she has no problem, but she also never installed CHROME.  Followed the steps above, but same error message.  Question - when I EXPORTED, I named one HKCU_Classes_HTML_Backup.reg, the next HKCU_Classes_HTM_Backup.reg, the next HKCU_Classes_SHTML_Backup.reg and then under modify put in HTMLFILE for one, HTMFILE for the next, and SHTMLFILE for the third.  Is this correct ??? Or should they have been named differently.  After this did not work I also found XHT and XHTML to also be listing CHROME so I changed them, but nothing.  Did I do all of this correct ?? Any suggestions ??? Thanks
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more irmalommen 10/26/09 4:14 AM
This worked perfect for me. For me it worked best by printing this help and going over it point by point.
Good luck,
Irma
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more dmarz911 10/26/09 6:35 AM
It worked.  I needed to make sure that the MODIFY portion of each of the 3 sections I changed went to htmlfile regardless of it was htm, html, shtml. I also did these steps for xht and xhtml (which listed CHROME) and MODIFIED both to XHTML.  Thanks
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more irmalommen 10/26/09 6:39 AM
I am glad it worked for you.
I thought it was real frustating when things didn't work properly any more after my 'Chroome adventure' :(
And it seems that they never solved this problem! Shame on Google!
Greetings from the Netherlands.
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more DaveBoyer 11/10/09 11:12 AM
Thank you Irma and everyone who has contributed to this article!  Just prior to installing Windows 7 I removed "everything" google from my computer.  On my first attempt to use Outlook email I was totally surprised that hot links wouldn't work.  While searching for a solution to the problem I found this article and decided to follow the steps listed in "best answer".  Following the steps worked!  Being a 61 year old computer novice I was wonderfully surprised!  Again... my thanks to Irma and everyone who has taken their time to make the computing world a friendlier place to work and live.
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more aussievic 11/17/09 12:59 AM
This has probably been the best reply that I have read and corrected my problem, too. However, (don't you hate it when someone says that) I have also found other entries concerning the Google Chrome program in the registry. One reference is made under 'Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\http\DefaultIcon' & the Data is  '......User\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\Chrome.exe, 0' and others under 'http'. There are similar entries under 'ftp' (instead of 'http'), 'https' & more. What should be done about them? Personally, I feel that it's about time Google read some of these, probably 'isolated incidents', and admitted to this problem and said sorry and fixed it at it's source. Otherwise I guess there will be many users walking away from Google, at the moment I feel like leading the pack. Victor - PS don't spread it around.
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more nondescript 12/2/09 10:23 PM
Thanks dmarz911...  I posted the original reply rapidly when the issue came up and never did revise the list...  You are correct, .htm .html .shtml .xht and .xhtml are all keys that need to be reverted back to their original value if doing the manual reset to the IE default process for file extensions, and http, https and ftp need to be addressed for URL handlers.

Since this thread is still getting traffic, I'll update the original instructions once I setup a clean machine to pull information from.  In the interim, the original information should at least get anyone to the point where they can go to the IE options, programs tab, and use the "Make Default" button to restore the remaining keys and associations.

Tried all the online fixes for this Office error, however I did forget that I had installed and removed Google Chrome last week. This fix worked like a charm

Thanks so much
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more abhimanyyu 1/7/10 9:45 PM
I had this problem, "When clicking on a hyperlink in an e-mail, I get this Message : "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator."

I reached the link "http://www.slipstick.com/problems/link_restrict.htm" and tried all the solutions under "To fix it, try resetting Web settings in Internet Explorer. If this does not resolve the issue, set IE as the default browser following the steps in Set Program Access in Control Panel. If you use a different browser as your default, you need to set IE as the default until you verify the links work in Outlook."

I finally read and tried the souution for Google Chrome Removal "If you uninstalled Chrome (or Firefox) and then received the error, see Edit Registry, Part 2"

THIS WORKED LIKE A CHARM AND SOLVED THE PROBLEM IMMEDIATELY. I had to change the registery entries in all the KEYS namely: .html, .htm, .shtml, .xhtml and xhtm keys by changing the value from "ChromeHTML" to "htmlfile"

I am writing this entry to share my bad experience with Google Chrome. I had to uninstall the software due to it taking over about 4 GB of space and increasing every day, unless someone actually remembered to erase some data. After the uninstallation it has left problems all across the registry and my computer. Google is actually proving more intrusive than Microsoft in their softwares!!

Be Warned!!

PS: The sad part is that the most dependable, unobtrusive and light browser does not work on a lot of websites showing RUNTIME ERRORS or simply no reaction to pressing buttons. This includes a lot of Bank websites and even trying to send a Feedback Mail on the slipstick.com website. This is the power and manipulation of MICROSOFT, because they all are configured to work on IE. Sad... but true!!
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more GeorgeAiredale 1/18/10 2:56 PM
I have win7 and experience the same problem.  I am not as computer savvy as you.  When renaming xhtml & others, do you simply remove chrome and add file?
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more irmalommen 1/19/10 3:47 AM
No, you don't add files you just change all were it says 'Chrome' into 'html' . That way you indeed remove Chrome, it's the only way sofar.
Succes!

google programmers should be hog tied and whipped for being so arragant and for acting and pretty much being like Microsoft.. why do they have to hijack the reg settings so deeply that after uninstall things are screwed teh #($&#&#( UP. It is pathetic because google knows there are millions of people who use Outlook and the unistall issue will effect many. I like googel a lto but this is pathetic that this problem has been around for so long and nothting has beeen done about it. get a grip google between your nexus 1 support issue and your growin arragance your are wel down teh path to becoming as creepy as Microsoft you MFs'

Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more chromejunk 2/17/10 7:58 PM
GOOGLE - FIX THIS ! This is totally ridiculous. Chrome destroys the ability to click links from emails...not just the old Outlook, also Windows Mail ! Also your super wonderful Chrome crap destroys the ability to use Windows Update! Now when I click on Windows Update, it says.. Application Not Found..............GREAT !!!!!   I'm not sure how I'm going to fix that short of a complete reload of Windows XP......FIX THAT ALSO !!!!!!  Don't send me anymore of your crap and ask me to run it until it is completely finished and doesn't cause hours of anxiety and concern !!!!  Your chrome is peeling.......badly  !!!
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more Roger-Ohio 2/26/10 8:16 PM
Looking at my Registry I find over 50 entries involving Chrome.  The suggestions provided here only address about 4 of these entries.

GOOGLE You created the virus called Chrome. How about providing a program that will remove your virus?
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more Tom911 3/3/10 9:36 AM
Nondescript's method worked for me. (2nd post from the top).

Clearly Google Chrome is to blame here.  The fact that this problem has been identified for over 6 months and has still not been fixed by Google seems to indicate they are bent on dominating the browser market with some pretty nasty tactics. Shame on you Google. Until now, I held you in high esteem.  If you mess with my registry then your uninstall program should remove all of your garbage.  FIX IT NOW.
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more tjdayney 4/4/10 8:13 PM

Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more comb 4/13/10 7:08 AM
Tried to follow nondescript's recipe for editing registry key but was unable to complete step 5 as "modify" was not an available option on right-clicking.  Therefore, followed advice from elsewhere to reinstall Chrome in order to fix problem.  This worked ok.  Then I had to make IE my default browser in order to then designate Firefox my default browser.
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more nondescript 4/13/10 1:08 PM
If you have your mouse properties set for left hand - the buttons would be reversed; but I take from your comment that you did get a context menu that had different options than I described.  I suspect that you were clicking on the "key" on the left named .html (with the folder icon) not the "value" on the right named (Default)...

6. Change the value from "ChromeHTML" to "htmlfile".  Where is the deafault value as I can't see anyway .html key. Please help

Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more cmeurer 5/3/10 9:45 AM
I have a similar problem but can't find any information about how to solve it. After INSTALLING Chrome (not UNinstalling - I still have it installed) the links in any of my OUTgoing emails don't work. Friends have told me that the links don't work unless they cut/paste them, and sure enough, I sent a test email to myself and the links target http:/// instead of where the link should actually direct to. Links in INcoming emails from others do work, just not when I send the link to myself - so it's clearly a problem with MY computer. This only started happening when I installed Chrome. How can I fix it?

Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more Stardance 5/16/10 7:20 PM
@woolardo:  If your sysadmin has not already found out, then tell them that Google Updater is installed as a service each and every time that Windows boots (starts-up).  It also makes Chrome the default browser.  I don't know what else it might do, such as modifying Registry keys.

@aussievic:  Certainly, installing Google Chrome creates or modifies many Registry keys (how many depends upon which software is installed on your computer).  Many of the keys which are usually ....\Google Chrome are relevant only to Chrome.  You can search for them and delete them manually, but be very careful about that.  Such "orphan keys" will be found if you run a program such as Piriform's CCleaner (free) and use its Registry feature to scan the Registry for flaws, then allow it to "fix" the "issues" that it finds. ( Just in the interest of safety, allow it to backup a copy of the Registry file before you tell it to fix anything.)

    The basic problem is that the Chrome installer (or perhaps Google Updater or even Chrome itself) modifies some keys which previously had values that were appropriate for the default browser that you were using before you installed Chrome.  What the values should be is not easy to know.  Contacting the "tech support" personnel for the browser that you want to use as the default, which may mean using a "user support forum", is probably the best source of advice as to what the values for the following keys should be:

    HKey_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.ftp
    HKey_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.http
    HKey_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.https

The advice given by irmalommen is apparently the best for the .htm, .html and .shtml keys, although it needs to be applied to the .xht and .xhtml classes, too, if they are in the Registry that you are editing.

It worked!  I had uninstalled chrome. Thank you so much.  I first did the html registry only and it did not work.  Then did it for HTM and shtml. At first it did not work.  I closed my email then reopened it nd everything worked.
THRILLED.

Maybe the answer works, maybe it doesn't. Depends on how well the poster evaluated it.

The real question, is why was "ChromeHTML" created in the first case????

I don't expect to hear an answer soon

uninstalled chrome, changed files to html as instructed and still getting the error 'application not found'

what next google? idiots... very unimpressed!
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more nondescript 8/1/10 8:37 PM

Hi...I have two user accounst, one for Microsoft and one mine.  I just spent an hour on the phone with the MS helpdesk and we resolved this issue on the MS account....I switched back over to my personal account and the issue remains.  Can't get past step 2: Locate the following subkey:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.html   ...because the only folder I see under Classes are .ibc, .ics, .vcf, .wlc, .wlx.
 
Can anyone help?  HUGELY appreciated!!!
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more GiggleLoop 9/21/10 5:25 AM
Issue: Clicking links in e-mails get this message:
"This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator."
Solution: I found that only changing this key worked for me:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.html].(Default)="ChromeHTML" to "htmlfile"
No restart required.
Close Outlook and re-open.
Links then work.
I believe that Google was installed and then uninstalled, leaving this key.
Other .html keys in other parts of the registry already discussed in this thread may also need to be changed to the same.
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more FrankK1Corp 12/8/10 9:58 PM
Thanks,

This solved my problem; many thanks. I am still trying to work out how Chrome got installed in the first place. Does it come in as a tick box (which I obviously missed) on something else? Can Google/Chrome team please fix their uninstall?

Thanks
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more DiscoDoro 2/2/11 4:39 PM
nondescript has the answer, thank you. Your solution worked. The issue is not a Microsoft Outlook 2010 problem, it is your browser settings. I downloaded and uninstalled GoogleChrome, and that's when the problem started. I won't be doing that again, and steering clear of Chrome. I uhave IE8 & running W7. Here is the solution again, thanks to nondescript:
Restore registry settings in the User Profile
1. Click Start, click Run, type Regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.

2. Locate the following subkey:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.html

3. On the File menu, click Export.

4. In the Export Registry File dialog box, enter HKCU_Classes_HTML_Backup.reg and click Save.

Note: This will create a backup of this registry key in the My Documents folder by default.

5. Right click the (Default) value for the .html key and select Modify...

6. Change the value from "ChromeHTML" to "htmlfile"

Repeat steps 1-6 for .htm and .shtml keys if they exist, remember to change the name of your backup file for each export
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more Implosiondrive 2/9/11 3:07 AM
For WINDOWS 7 users the following method works:

Click on START
then CONTROL PANEL
then PROGRAMS
then SET YOUR DEFAULT PROGRAMS.
Next select Internet Explorer (or whatever is your preferred internet browser) and down the bottom of the window click on SELECT DEFAULTS FOR THIS PROGRAM. This will display a list of all the file extensions which will default to open with your internet browser. The easiest thing is to simply click the SELECT ALL box above the list and then click SAVE (bottom right of window). Now your email links should open with your default internet browser. Very simple :)

Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more pdposter 3/18/11 3:35 PM
Great posts, but I didn't have the '.html' file in my registry. Go figure.
However, I was able to play around and figured out another, easier way.
Just go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, and select 'Reset Internet Explorer Settings'.
There will be a few basic steps after that, but they are quick and simple.
Give it a try!!
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more mvorn44 3/28/11 7:40 AM
When you uninstalled Chrome it left your computer without a default browser. For XP go to Control Panel, Internet Options, select the Programs tab. Select the "Make Default" button in the middle of the window.  Your links should work again. It's is that easy. I spent days trying to figure this out.  I tried all the stuff in the previous post and more. I never thought it would something as simple as this.
Re: After uninstalling Google Chrome Links in e-mail don't work any more JessQ 6/4/11 7:20 PM

The non-working of links can be caused by several programs. I installed SQL*Xl ( to access a database), found it unworkable then uninstalled it. Low and behold hyperlinks in Microsoft Office applications and in my email client ceased to operate.
 
Tried the above and it worked !

7/31/2011....this method still works although I had to do a lot of searching in all programs as I am on Windows 7 and all instructions were for XP or vista.....this was a very annoying problem.  Don't know how Chrome google was installed on my PC...saw the icon on my desk top and when I unistalled, this problem started.  Any instructions still valid but you have to search for regedit then click in form there.
