Hi,

What would cause every picture on IE to appear grainy?? This started happening about 4 months ago and I'm not sure what to do.

This is a screenshot of what I mean....all the pictures are like this.

Try another browser (Firefox preferably) and let us know if they look the same. If they look the same, it's not a browser problem more then likely. You may have a graphics card problem or your color settings are off.

I downloaded firefox and the pictures look the same....all the other pictures on the computer look good though. I guess this problem started after someone in my family tried printing something.

What is your color quality set at? Right click desktop, click Properties then the Settings tab. If you think it is related to your print settings, check and reset those to default values. I don't really think that's the cause, but it is curious the images look good on your PC and not in any browser. Take it that means the images look good at same size in an imaging app?

Is there an internet accelerator running? Most work by only downloading parts of web images to make your connection appear faster.

I'm not sure how to check the print settings and how do I find out if it's running an accelerator?

If there is an accelerator running, there should be an icon in your Taskbar. What dial-up ISP do you have?
