One of my computers at work is having problems displaying web pages properly. It doesn't matter if I use firefox or IE, I have tried updating java and flash but it had no effect what so ever. It's really hard for me to explain so I have attached a few images comparing a couple websites from a different computer.


Both of the pictures below are from http://www.yahoo.com the top being from the computer that is messed up and the bottom from a different computer
Attached File  untitled (Medium).JPG   95.33KB   13 downloads
Attached File  untitled1 (Medium).JPG   101.25KB   15 downloads

Both of the pictures below are from http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/home.oap the top being from the computer that is messed up and the bottom from a different computer
Attached File  untitled2 (Medium).JPG   99.91KB   14 downloads
Attached File  untitled4 (Medium).JPG   104.15KB   10 downloads

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

You'd have to post links to those sites and point us out to what is displayed incorrectly.
It's hard to say from your shots.

In the second set of pictures, http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/home.oap , the top picture of the O'Reilly website is missing the background colors and doesn't have any green boarders around the words. The bottoms picture of the O'Reilly website is how it is supposed to look like but doesn't.

It is strange.

Try couple of things....

Close IE.
Go Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools, and click on Internet Explorer (no add-ons). Same problem?

Close Firefox. Go Start>All Programs>Mozilla Firefox, click on Mozilla Firefox (safe mode). Same issue?

Also, see if same issue exist in Safe Mode with Networking.

Happened recently?

I tried running both Firefox and IE in safe mode and also tried safe mode with networking non of them made any difference.

Also the web pages have always displayed incorrectly its not just at random times.

You have Adblock Plus installed and enabled as a Firefox Add-On in the screen shots that look "right" to you.

I use Adblock Plus too and don't see exactly what you are seeing on those pages with it turned on or turned off, but that looks like it might be a clue.

Here are a couple more pictures to compare, I just did a regular search for bleeping computer on yahoo.

The top one looks really plain, but the bottom looks like its supposed to look.

In your Firefox, Tools, Options, Content tab, do you have Load images automatically enabled (a check in the box)?

I created a new firefox profile and its still the same thing.
Also I have IE 8 installed.


I found one more thing that is odd, I'm not sure if it is related but when I open Microsoft Word 2007 the tool bar looks different also. I never open word on that particular computer so I never knew about it.

This is how it looks

Two more ideas:

For Internet Explorer go Tools>Internet Options>General Tab, click Accessibility. Make sure all the boxes are unchecked.

For Word, try right clicking on your desktop, properties, themes, make sure "windows classic" theme is not seleted (switch to XP theme)
