On some internet sites some windows fail to show their content and instead have
a black outline with a red X in the top left hand corner. These are innocent sites
( such as E-Bay ) so could someone please advise. Is it my security settings in
Explorer ? Many thanks

Does this happen every time at that site, or occasionally?

It happens everytime. I've got Norton Antivurus and have tried disabling popups etc. but this doesn't help either.

Click on start, then run, and type
notepad c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

press the ok button and copy the contents here.

Also,

Open Internet Explorer. When it is open click on Tools and then Internet Options. Then click on the Connections tab and then press the Lan Settings button. Do you have it set to use a proxy server?

It is set as a proxy server
Bypass proxy server for local addresses is also activated.

Thanks for trying to sort it out for me Grinler.
Not the end of the world if I don't get the odd page in full
but I'm not new to computing / internet and have never
had this problem before. Just wondering why?
Many thanks ... Gizmo

Unfortunately, still the same. However I have turned off Norton Internet Security momentarily and it has solved the problem. Obviously I won't leave it off so any ideas as to what the cause might be ? Many thanks ... Gizmo. :thumbsup:

It seems that Norton has restricted your internet settings too much to view the type of content on that page - probably active X controls.

You can probably readjust the settings, but then you lose the protection they are giving you. See if Ebay tech support will assist you in regaining connectivity to Ebay (will probably fix your other restrictions as well unless the problem is limited to just certain restricted sites that you may have added to being banned by inadvertently clicking them into oblivion yourself and in that case you just remove them from the banned sites).
