When I open some e-mails and also some web pages I cannot see the pictures. Instead I get a box where the picture should be with a little box in the upper right corner with a red "X" in it. Does anybody know how to correct this? Any help would be appreciated.

Which particular OS are you having this problem? Getting the "little red x" instead of images has been a security setting in XP SP2. Can also depend on which browser you use and the settings/preferences you have set for it. I can shut my images, flash, etc. off in Firefox for example.

Are you using a Firewall or "filtering software"?

Several of these are known to cause problems:

1) Zone Alarm Pro [Private Header Info - enabled?] Reset "Ad Blocking" and "Cookie Control" to "medium" "Mobile Code Control" = Off

2) Symantec (ISS\NIS)[Enable Browser Privacy - enabled] Active Content - "Allow All Script To Execute" Problem: some sites cannot detect the 128 bit encryption Solution: Completely remove and reinstall NIS.

3) Any "ad blocking" software that blocks "http_referrer" or contains entries that are blocking access to the desired site.

4) HOSTS file that contains entries that are blocking access to the desired
site.

5) Cookie blocking software that are blocking "required" Cookies.

6) Pop-up blockers that are stripping header\url info.

7) WebWasher Standard Filter/URL Filter

8) Make sure the following registry entry is not corrupt:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settings] "User Agent"="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Win32)"

Note: "Win32" = Windows 98\ME
Other versions = (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0;)

Other checks/info including M$ Links which you need to read and apply if necessary :

There are many possible causes and solutions. Try the quick, easy fix first. Clear the IE cache from IE> Tools> Internet Options> General> Delete files and Delete offline content. Reset the TIF folder size to about 50MB (Settings button) and clear it occasionally.

Also, go to Start | Run and type

regsvr32 /i mshtml.dll

and press OK.
