    HELP PLEASE, Pictures showing as red X's??

    Hi all,

    I reinstalled windows recently and now when browsing the net I am getting lots of pictures not showing up properly and instead I get red X's showing in their place, does anyone know what I can do to solve this? I have tried browsing via IE8, Firefox and Google Chrome.

    Rep will be left for all help/advice given. Ta.

    Most unusual, was hoping the answer would be as simple as going into options and ticking load images.

    What other software have you got running? I.e. firewalls or antiviruses. Does anything happen if you right click the unloaded image and click load image? Is your copy of Windows Genuine and which version is it? Have you applied all the updates?

    Do you mean on this site because it has been happening quite a bit recently /.

    thanks all, I had been to that microsoft site, no success. It happens on a variety of websites, most notably when doing ebay searches and all the small pics of the left hand side of the list of search results come up with red x's.

    I'm using vista, with avg and windows defender.

    If I right click on a red x and select "show picture" then the red x disappears and I'm left with a blank space.

    I've now gone back to an ebay search and when I right click on "show picture" the picture comes up in place of the red x.
