Some Images Do Not Load in IE7

I got a new dell computer on May 28th.

It came with XP SP2 and IE 6. Images would not load in IE, so I figured I'd need to upgrade to SP3 as well as upgrading IE to 7.

I'm a dial up user, and I use AOL. The browser within AOL (which I always thought was IE) will load the images fine, but I don't like to use it much because you don't really go full screen. Most of the images I notice don't load are from my own website, but it does it on many other sites as well. However, on AOL the images load fine on my website and all other sites.

I've checked to make sure in tools that I can view images, and I've run Avira. Nothing was found, which I figured since it is a brand new computer.

In another thread on this forum someone suggested visiting a site that recommended finding ie.inf and repairing IE. Well, that cannot be found on the computer. So the next suggestion in that document was to run sfc /scannow which is supposed to be system file checker, but when I ran it it was called Windows File Protection and it stated "Please wait while windows verifies that all protected Windows files are intact and in their original versions." I was suprised at how long it took to do since the computer seems super fast at everything else. But...that didn't work.

I know a lot of people prefer anything over IE these days, but I normally don't have issues with it, and would like to continue to use it.

On a side note, I just recently got help here for my sisters 1yr old virus plagued dell computer and it too had the same issue with IE images. Eventually one day it was showing images again and I cannot figure out what might have fixed her image issue. Seems likely its a dell issue perhaps.

I'm about ready to pull my hair out, as this is not the first issue I've had with this new computer.

Just a little update

I came across another post and found this link: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=283807

All the directions I followed even though they were already done - all except the encoding language. It was set for Unicode...

My problem is now solved.
