Web page doesn't show images all the time. Some times in the same web page I am getting the image as it should be and some times only red x's and some times I get both images and red x's. I have to click "show picture" in a drop down window then the image will usually appear.

I am using AOL as my browser and windows XP SP3.

AOL's browser lost support 4 years ago. Best to use another more modern browser.

Do you have the same problem in IE?

Agree with Buddy totally!
Quit using AOL as a browser and use IE or Mozilla Firefox.

AOL is barely still in business.
Test it with Internet Explorer to see if it works correctly then.
If it does, switch over to it.

Before you ask "what about all my email?"
Go to AOL.com and get your mail that way.

Consider switching to a more modern email provider like possibly Yahoo, hotmail or Gmail.
AOL is barely alive & probably wont be around much longer.
In the beginning there was the command line.
