Tired to "reset" all of the IE settings, cleaned the temp files with ATF, scanned for maleware with SAS, reset the XP visual settings, updated the display drivers, etc etc.
Also changed security from CA suite to Avira/Prevx. Still the same.
Can't think of what setting might be blocking the images.
Does Firefox use the same rendering engine as IE ?? I didn't think so.
