    Trying to get on-line help for a Word 2007 problem I get the "This operation
    has been canceled due to restrictions on this computer. Please contact your
    system administrator." when I click the link.
    Running Win7 64 bit.

    All the links and KB I can find refer to XP and or older versions of Office.
    The "Reset Web" instruction in kb 307818 id not an option under IE8.
