Hi I have a little issue. Well every time I go on to some websites, alot of the pictures do not show up or load up, instead it just shows the box where the picture is supposed to be and that little symbol. Usually I try to right click on that little symbol so I can click "show picture" but its not working. So do I need to download something like a plug-in, I dont know. Can you please help me, Thank You.

You don't need a plugin to display pictures in your web browser as long as they are in JPG, BMP, or GIF format. If the problem arises only on some sites but not on others, I would hazard a guess that there's a problem with that web-page having html-code errors on it. I've seen this quite often. The HTML code for that page doesn't point to the correct location of the thumbnail, or the thumbnails themselves are missing. Either way, the picture isn't there and there's nothing wrong with your settings.

The thing is that I think something is wrong with my computer because I can view the same site on another computer and it shows everything including the pictures but on mine it doesnt. Any suggestions.

I think that slow connections often cause this, I am the only person in my house that has this problem because I have the worst wireless connection (I am on a network). I will presume you have Internet Explorer (IE) since you don't know what FireFox is (I have had more problems with pictures loading in FireFox, but it is lot better Internet browser other wise (I never have any popups).

Now for the important part, your connection speed. Do you have dialup or broadband? Dialup is 56KB* and broadband can be any where up to 12MB*. If you have dialup try to upgrade to broadband (this might not be available in you aria, is which case I can do nothing to help you and you will have to ignore it). If you already have broadband get a faster deal.

The question that you will be asking now is how will this help besides making the pages load quicker. The answer is that when that computer asks for something form the Internet is only waits for a certain amount of time for a response, if is dose not get one is forgets it (this means that the picture dose not load).

* This is the bites per second.
