I cannot open a link on an email in my Outlook 2003, I get the message This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer, Please contact your administrator

You might have some viruses and malware.....

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

When i insert my pen drive it appears.but when i click open "this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer".how can i solve this problem ?

Myself have a Cruzer Contour (4GB) also, I happen to meet this error when use it on one of my client notebook. It seems that a antivirus/anti-malwares software blocking the "Autorun" program been execute, in order to prevent wide spread viruses came from pen drive information sharing.
(Sorry.... cannot recall which antivirus software...)

Some how the Sandisk Cruzer is carrying a build in program called "U3 Luanchpad", which also happen to using "Autorun" approach. Very high chances you might caught in this situation.

Please perform a virus/malwares scan on the thumbdrive. if USB happen to be found nothing related to the "Autorun" after scan, and able to use on other PC/NB environment (which not the same anti-virus amd anti-malwares been used). It will be pretty sure the problem lies on the software I mentioned in your PC/NB.

Control panel not responding

I asume you are getting this error "This Operation Has Been Cancelled Due to Restrictions in Effect on This Computer" This is cause when your computer administrator is trying to keep you out of certain areas of the computer, in your case the control panel. "If you are an administrator, you can verify the policies that are enabled. To do this, click User Configuration, click Administrative Templates, and then click System. "
