Recently, images (pictures) and Smileys sometimes don't open on my PC.

All I get is a little red cross in a box. Or sometimes a tiny box containing a circle, a square and a triangle.

It doesn't happen all the time, just now and then. And sometimes some Smileys or pictures will open on a page while others won't.

For example, the Smileys on this page from HUKD just appear as little red crosses:

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/354869/any-lawyers-civil-servants-on-here-/

Many. many other pages from HUKD are the same - no Smileys, just red crosses.

If I go to the Submit or Post Reply pages, some of the block of Smileys on the right are visible, others are just those little red crosses.

I am getting the same problem with my laptop, so I assume there is nothing wrong with my PC, otherwise why would both be doing the same thing?

Is anyone else having the same problem? And does anyone have the answer, please?

As a start, I would be grateful if someone would kindly let me know if they too are not getting the Smileys on the above page, just red crosses where they should be.

Thanks.

Many thanks to those who replied to my OP and reassured me that it is not my PC at fault.

Perhaps the Gremlins (or the Smileys) are to blame!

(If you don't know what Gremlins are, presumably you are not as old as I am :p)

(I've just put in a grinning Smiley there - hope it opens OK!! :thumbsup:
