I have a internet question, pictures on websites aren't animated for me (when i know they're supposed to be). For instance, I have a photobucket account and animated photos that I've downloaded don't seem to be working, I just get a solid picture with no animation.

I've downloaded Adobe Flash Player and my mouse icon works but nothing else seems to be.

I want to remind you all that I have a familiarity with the internet, but I just got my own yesterday, and I'm thinking I might've denied an application when intstalling the internet that would've automatically fixed the problem itself.

PLEASE HELP ME. This is a very irritating thing for me to result to an online forum, but my bf and I are stupefied.

wow.

thanks for the direction! i do not have spybots but i have my own firewall installed. eTRUST.

there is a tab for ad blocking, but i had to turn it completely off for it to be effective.

is that harmful to my computer to turn off the ad blocker completely?

It will be a trade off between convenience and pop ups which will bypass the pop up blocker

This will stop the really silly ones generated by Windows Messenger
