Howdy,

I have bleeping Computer stored in my favorites. When I clicked on Bleeping Computer this morning the site came up. Instead of seeing the discussion forums above my name all I see is a red X at the top of the page.

In another words I have no access to the different forums on the opening page.

I scrolled down to the bottom of the page and clicked on discussion forums. When that page showed up I had another red x on the top of page and next to it was the word forums.

Everything was fine yesterday.

Could someone please tell me whats going on and how to make things right again ??

(Windows XP Home, SP-2, IE Browser)

Thank You for your time.

Dennis :thumbsup:

Is everything ok right now? What I mean is, was this a one time event, or does this happen every time you visit Bleeping Computer?

I just had it happen to me once this morning as well.

It is probably a problem with the server that the web site resides on. It is not sending properly right now for some reason?

The red X indicates that an object (usually an image) goes there, but is not present.

I wouldn't worry about it as it does not appear to be a problem with your computer, but just to be sure, does this happen with other web sites as well?

EDIT: Now I have gotten some other errors where entire pages don't come up. Grinler is probably playing with us, or more likely working on the site.

Yes xpert, they are not avilable when the page opens.

Yes Albert, every so often. I visit a fishing web site quite often. Folks will post a link that is suppose to have a picture, but all I get is a little box with a red X.

Another example is this. Yesterday a guy posted a link to a scuba diving web site. What was suppose to be shown is live images from a under water web cam. When the page opened I had a square box in the middle of the web page that was completely blank except for another tiny square box in the upper left hand corner of the large box.

Inside the tiny box were little colored boxes.

I saved the image to my pictures and could post it here if you would like to see it and if it is allowed.

I have Norton Security 2006. Maybe Norton is blocking the pictures/images ??

I hope I am making some sense.

Thank You for your help.

Dennis :thumbsup:

If you think NIS is messing up your system you can un-install it and try with out it. If it is this will change the screens back and you will get your pictures, if no change you can re-install NIS and continue on

Thanks for the reply ThorXP.

It looks as though I have solved the red x problem on Bleeping Computer by restarting my computer.

Before I uninstall Norton ,can you think of anything else that may be causing the problems that I mentioned while visiting other web sites ??

Thanks,
Dennis :thumbsup:

Settings in your browser or file associations can cause it as well.

Do you know the file extension for the type of file that shows up as the red x?

Howdy Enthusiast.

I have know idea how to find out what file or file extention they are. If you tell me how to do it I will get right on it.

I have tried right clicking on the x's and then have clicked open to see what happens. The results, nothing.

Dennis :thumbsup:


EDIT: If it is allowed ,I could post the link to the scuba diving site so you could see what I sm seeing.

Here is the information that it is showing.

The Paynter Labs

Protocol: Hyper Transfer Protocol

Type : html document

connection : not encrypted

address: url
(url address is here, I am not adding it unless you would like me to )

Size: 5405

There is also a box that says certificates. I clicked on it and it says this program does not have security certificates.

I do not see the word extension anywhere.

It is an html document which your browser should open.

"Type : html document"

But I think what you gave is the properties for the web page, not the file you wanted to play.

Post the url and I will see if my browser opens it.
