Hi, for no apparant reason I have started to notice when opening some sites I see one or two white squares with a red x in the corner as though something is there but missing. If I clik on them sometime it redirects and other times it say not available.
Another oddity is when on another forum my avitar which I have had for years turned into a white box with the red x. When I went into settings it says off site image. When I try to add another image from image shack or photobucket the same happens. If I try to use the select from computer the image will not load.

Is there a common problem here? My signiture images from the same source are uneffected

I am using Windows XP Home. IE7 and am on AOL (for my sins!)

Hi doresy,

There are several things you can do. One is to try going back to an earlier restore point from before this started.

Or you can try repairing Internet Explorer as per these instructions from Microsoft: How to Reinstall or Repair Internet Explorer

And for information (and to have a second browser for when problems like this come up), if you download and install Firefox, do you have the same problem? That's here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/products/download.html
