Hi, I can't seem to see some pictures (I think it's limited to just jpegs) on some websites like LiveJournal. There's no box or anything where the picture should be, there's just nothing. Sometimes there will be a SendSpace link to download a .rar of the jpegs, and if I download that I can view them just fine (even in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer), it's just that I can't see them on the actual website.

I had this problem before and was able to find help to fix it; I think I remember that it had something to do with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, disabling it or something, but I'm not 100% sure so I didn't want to do that and then not be able to undo it (it's a shared computer).

Anyway, I'm running Windows XP Pro SP1. Any help is greatly appreciated because this is very frustrating! Thanks a lot.

What version of Java are you running? The latest is version 6.

Do you use Internet Explorer or another browser like Firefox or Opera?

Whoa, 6? Lol, I just checked and it says 1.5.0 :thumbsup: Would updating that help?

And I run both IE6 and Firefox, they both give me the same problem.

You should give it a try.
Download the new version,JRE6 from the Java Site Here.
Then go to Add/Remove Programs and remove the old version.

Try clearing your browers caches.

Thanks to you both for responding!

I actually clear my browsers' caches regularly as part of keeping the page loading time quick, so that isn't the source of my problem. Though updating the Java thingy helped a lot; it got rid of the mass of picture boxes with red X's in them that wouldn't load, so that's great :thumbsup: , but there are still some pictures that just show up as nothing---no box, nothing to click, and it seems everyone else can see the pictures except me.

I found the solution that worked last time (start->run->regsvr32 /u shimgvw.dll), but I did it this time and nothing happened. Would it matter that the system I used the first time was XP Pro SP2 and this one I'm using now is SP1?

Glad you're getting it worked out link_417 :thumbsup:

Upgrading to Service Pack 2 is a good idea.
You can download it and get other information from the Micro$oft site Here.

You'll experience problems if you continue to use SP1. Software developers are now using SP2 to develop their software (and to test it) - so there's bound to be issues with any new software that's released.
