    I know I've seen the answer for my query here in the forum, but I can't seem to locate it! My web pages seem to come up with pictures fine, but when I try other pages, I often get a 'red x' in the upper left corner and not picture. How do I fix this?? ( I use XP )

    Hi spins4, and welcome.

    I have moved your post to the "software & services" forum so it will get a better chance of replies then it might have in Ten Forward.

    What version of IE are you using? And is the problem only related to the display of images, or do you have a problem with downloading when the x is there?

    I had done some searching for similar issues with gif images being replaced with a red x in the box, but do you mean you are getting a totally white page with a red x and nothing else displayed?

    I have two links that may be helpful, although there is quite a bit of reading there:

    From Microsoft's Knowledge Base:

    Pictures Are Not Displayed on Web Sites in Internet Explorer


    Image on a Web Page Appears As a Large Red X

    Let us know if anything from the above links are helpful.

    You never said which browser you are i am going to presume that you have IE... when i had this is what solved it for me...the red X problem has many reasons for this to happen...a few are
    IE6 seems to have a bug regarding third-party namespace providers.
    Some of the types of offending programs may be download managers,
    personal security software, ftp clients, popup ad blockers, and so on.
    This fix may disable some functionality in those programs.

    To make IE6 display small images again, delete the following registry
    keys if they exist:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PROTOCOLS\Name-Space Handler\http
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PROTOCOLS\Name-Space Handler\https
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PROTOCOLS\Name-Space Handler\ftp

    The only key that should exist under
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PROTOCOLS\Name-Space Handler\mk.
