This is really really really bugging me, if you click on start then you click of your name or whatever to access your photos and videos and such, well you open that up, and you can see the little scroll down thing on the right, well most of the icons are not being shown. The are just displaying a black box where the icons are "supposed" to be. This only happens in my account on the computer, not the administaters. What is going on? Does anyone else have this problem? And how can I fix this?

The most obvious thing that could cause this (although there are many other reasons) is that your user account has become corrupted. Try creating a new account and seeing if it has the same behavior. If not, switch your stuff over to the new account and delete the old one.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
