Hi, for some unknown reason I've started getting a lot of red x's instead of pictures while surfing around, is there some setting I need to tweak somewhere or what?
Thanks, I'm Win XPHome

Microsoft has a lot of information regarding this problem along with suggested resolutions.

This happens when you have disabled images in your browser, your firewall is blocking images(ad blocking) or images are coded in HTML but do not exist on web server. If it a browser based thing, simply check the website using another browser like Firefox or Opera. If images are being blocked by firewall, or a software for ad-blocking, or some browser plugins, you can change settings in your firewall or uninstall such software or plugins. If you think its only happening on a certain website, then it is a temporary problem. Also try cleaning internet cache using CCleaner tool.

There are numerous possible causes and means of resolving them, this is why I didn't try to list them and only provided the link. There are more possibilities than what has been posted.
