IE not opening imbedded images - getting the Red X

OS: XP
IE: 6.0.2900.2180
SP2

We have 2 log ons to our PC. The administrative account and a regular account.
The regular account can get to pages fine and images come up ok.
The administrative account blocks some images and they only show up with the red X in the corner.
Example website is: www.startingovertv.com

This had been fine for the longest time then all of a sudden it wasn't working. Not sure exactly when it started happening to decipher cause/effect. Things that have changed recently was a change from cable ISP Earthlink, to DSL SBC Yahoo. Possibly settings within Yahoo blocking it? Also, I ran "Cleanup" when logged on as the administrator, so not sure if that got rid of something on the admin side but not the regular account side?

I haven't gone in to anything to change settings manually, but I compared Active X and Java settings - both accounts seem to have the same settings.

:whistling:

TIA!

hello and welcome to geekstogo,
firstly when you ran cleanup was your browser open?
secondly is this gif, jpeg? to find out right click on the image.
and lastly when did this start occuring? have you recenly installed a new program or update and this began to happen?

Hi James!

I am pretty sure I didn't have anything else open when I ran cleanup, but I can't say with 100% certainty.
I went to the website I mentioned in the OP. Nothing comes up on this page except for two boxes with red X's. When I did a rightclick on the intended image, it gives me a list of options, like add to favorites, select all, create shortcut, etc. There was an option that said "view source". I've pasted that info below.

I also went to "properties" when I right clicked and gave me the info that the protocol is hyper text transfer protocol, Type is HTML Document, Connection is Not Encrypted.

Nothing was intentionally installed on the PC. My step-son likes to play the freebe games online, which is why I gave him a separate account. I didn't want him accidentally downloading something he shouldn't. Ironic that now his account can get to things our admin account can't.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Jenny

sry i wasn't very clear in my last post, right click on the image (or where it should be) and then left click on properties. then there should be the image type somewhere along there. Also can you tell me what exactly the limited account is able to do that the admin account isn't? Also what browser(s) do you use on your computer?
thanx

No problem! Properties show it as an HTML document.
I have tried using both IE 6.0.29 and also SBC Yahoo DSL browser 5.02

As far as what the limited account can do, this is what Windows gives as a description:
Change/remove password
Change picture/theme/desktop settings
View files you created
View files in the shared documents folder.
Limited accounts cannot always install programs and may need admin privileges to do so.

i know what i can do however you previously said that the limited account can do more then the administrative account. I was wondering what it can do that the administrative account can no longer seem to do.
Also still not what i was looking for there should be something that says a gif, jpeg, tiff somewhere. If you still can't find something with that can you tell me where the location of the image is that displays this problem.
Can you install firefox at the following link http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/ (a better browser) and tell me if you are experiencing the same problems.
thanx
James

I gotcha. The limited account can see all imbedded pictures (not sure if I'm using correct terminology there), but the admin account can not see all of them. When I log onto my PC as the limited account, I can get to web sites and have all the images come up. When I log in as the admin account, those same images do not come up, I get the red X.

I can not find what the image type is. The only info listed is what I gave you. Sorry.

I installed firefox and used it to go to a website (the website I've been testing this issue on is www.startingovertv.com), rather than a red X it says "Click here to download plugin". I did that and it asked for an install of Macromedia Flash Player. I installed it and it came up! I then tried going to the website using IE and it still did not come up. :whistling:

Thanks,
Jenny

aaaaa....ok this isn't an image problem we are dealing with then.
ok, now that i know what the issue is realated to can you tell me what version you have and if you uninstalled it after it was installed? If it is still on your computer can you can tell me the version by going to start->control panel->add remove programs then look for macromedia player. After the name it'll tell you the version.
thanx

I did not intentionally uninstall Macromedia Flash Player, but I had run spybot and Adaware and the cleanup apps. Could one of them accidentally uninstalled it? I run the spyware apps frequently and never had a problem, but this is only the 2nd time I ran cleanup in the last year that I've had that app.

So, right now it shows I have macromedia flash player 8.

Java Sun info is below. Note - I got this off of IE. The SBC browser did not have this info listed under the tools menu.


Java Plug-in 1.5.0_06
Using JRE version 1.5.0_06 Java HotSpot™ Client VM
User home directory = C:\Documents and Settings\Owner


----------------------------------------------------
c: clear console window
f: finalize objects on finalization queue
g: garbage collect
h: display this help message
l: dump classloader list
m: print memory usage
o: trigger logging
p: reload proxy configuration
q: hide console
r: reload policy configuration
s: dump system and deployment properties
t: dump thread list
v: dump thread stack
x: clear classloader cache
0-5: set trace level to <n>
----------------------------------------------------



Thanks James!

James.
It is still not working. :blink: I installed it, verified it's there in add/remove programs. It shows Macromedia shockwave player version 10.1.0.11. I rebooted. Still get the same results - with a red X.

Any other ideas :whistling:

Thanks!
