    I'm trying to look at the tutorials Uguel made over in the PaintShop & PhotoFiltre thread, and all I see is red x's . It is something on my end because it does it on other sites too :mad:

    Hey Sonya, it does that to me sometimes too.
    Especially when there are lots of large pictures on the same page.
    Sometimes just hitting Refresh or F5 helps to reload the page properly. ;)

    Hi Sonya, I have moved your thread from "Other Security Issues" over into this forum.

    You haven't said which browser this is occurring in, so I'll assume it's IE6? also, if you could give us more information, example what operating system (SP1, SP2, updates installed recently, etc) and when you first noticed this happening.

    It could be a number of things that is causing this - anywhere from a security app (firewall, proxy software, antivirus, etc) that could be filtering and blocking some images. Also, have you changed any settings in IE? You could try resetting them back to default and see if that helps. Or it could be you need to clear your IE cache, maybe even increase it if you have it set low. When viewing a thread with many images in it, some of which could be quite large, you cache can fill up quickly. If it is set too low, or it's too full, then some images won't display.

    Not knowing what steps you have taken yet to troubleshoot the possible causes, you can read through these links and see if anything in them might be helpful:

    Pictures Are Not Displayed on Web Sites in Internet Explorer

    and

    Image on a Web Page Appears As a Large Red X

    You might also find some helpful suggestions in this thread at DSLReports:
    IE6 Gif Display Bug--RESOLVED--

    Let us know if anything in the above links helps.

    Regards,

    snap

    I use Mozilla, not Firefox, just Mozilla. So far I have cleaned up the temp. internet files, and cleared my cookies. I just checked after I had to do a sys restore for another reason, and the red x's are still there. It's not all pictures, but it is most pictures are x out. Thanks for the info. :) I will go check out the links now .

    Yep, cache is the first thing I check and clear too. Usually works everytime. ;)

    Good to hear you're seeing the images again, Sonya! :D

    Glad you could solve your problem Sonya!
    I wasn't aware of that tip about the "cache" :doubt:
    ...thanks Snap! :)
