Hi. I am running XP and have recently had problems with pictures in Explorer. they are all fuzzy...as if all the pixels are not there or something. It affects all the pictures on webpages and also my own pictures that I upload to Ofoto. It does NOT affect my personal jpg files on my computer. I've searched the toolbars, help sections & have come up with no help. Any suggestions? thank you. mollyb

Hi mollyb, welcome to Geeks to Go! <_<

On the Interenet Exlorer toolbar select Tools -> Internet Options..., click the Advanced tab and select the Restore Defaults button. See if that helps.

Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? I hope it's not Norton.

Do you have an LCD monitor? Also try checking your color resolution.

I have restored all defaults in Internet Explorer as was suggested, and still I have blurry graphics. I have checked the help sections on Windows with no luck. I found that if i REFRESH PICTURE/REFRESH PAGE WITH FULL QUALITY the picture comes clear - but it's ridiculous to have to do that for all internet pages. Can someone help me?
thanks, Molly


Have you tried updating your graphics drivers?
