:thumbsup: Most pictures are not opening on the sites I go to, but have an empty outlined box, with a smaller box and a red "X" inside that. I have to Right-Click each individual outlined box, click on "show picture", to open the contents of any given box like this.
Was not doing this all the time, suddenly every site I visit, the same problem.
What is wrong? How can I fix this? How can I prevent reoccurances of this issue?
I have Windows XP, Home version, Internet Explorer 6 and have a dial up connection. This just started maybe 3 days ago and would like to figure it out, is bugging me...thanx very much

Hi Leeann,

Try emptying your temporary internet files folder.

In IE go to the toolbar and click on > Tools > Internet Options under the general tab click on Delete Files... put a check in the Delete offline files content and click OK. And then click OK again. See if this helps. Also go to the Advanced tab while in Internet Options and scroll down to Multimedia and make sure there is a check next to > Show Pictures.

If you are going to stay with IE as your browser (which is what I use) it's best to lock down IE for security reasons. There are internet sites that will give you info of how to lock down IE but I don't agree with a lot of their suggestions. One thing you should do is under the advanced tab of Tools > Internet Options, put a check mark next to - Empty Temporary Internet Files Folder when browser is closed.

If you're interested in locking down IE, please post again.

Clearing your IE cache will not fix this issue. First, update your Java, second download and run scripten.exe. And, if the above 2 don't fix it get IEfix and run it.
