The only sites affected (that I'm aware of) are Myspace and Netflix. I'm not having any trouble with any other pages.

The pages themselves load ok, but the images do not load at all. All I see are placeholders (a red 'x' or a broken image marker). Also, on Myspace, if an image is hosted elsewhere (like Photobucket, or an off-site advertiser) it loads, but if it is hosted by Myspace itself it's no go. I can't see any images on Netflix at all, just text.

I've tried viewing these sites in Firefox, IE, and Netscape, and it's exactly the same problem on all three browsers.

I've tried the following: turning off my firewall, turning off my AV (avast!), clearing my cache & temp internet files, scanning my pc with AdAware (nothing unusual came up). I don't have any parental controls on.

I rarely go to Myspace, but not being able to see pics on Netflix is kind of annoying. What should I do?

Thanks in advance.
