Hope someone can help me on this one. I am suddenly unable to see the weather bars on the forums I belong to. I have the latest Java so I'm not sure what's causing this.
I switched to DSL recently and I'm wondering if that could be the problem?

Is the missing weather bar(s) a function of a program on your computer or a function of the site you are visiting? If the bar shows the weather for your area then you would likely have to be logged in and there may be another cookie that you have blocked. I doubt if it has anything to do with DSL. Though it could have been a function of your former Internet provider.

It's not a program but simply a link that is posted on the forum and is always there. I never had this problem before but now it's just a red x.
I'm still with the same Internet provider. None of the other members have this problem so it must be settings and I don't know where to start!

Could it be that your browser/anti virus is blocking outside links?
Did you recently upgrade to IE7 or FF 2.0?

I didn't upgrade to IE 7 or change to FF.
I will ask my son to help me with the configuration suggested on the Java site.
Thanks for your help.

Sounds like a good plan. Good luck to you!
