Sick of the Red X problem

I have tried various solutions to this and am getting nowhere fast. :tazz:

This doesn't happen all the time, but on IE 6 sp 2 some pictures and/or videos won't load, I just see the Red X. I have tried adjusting Java settings, but to no avail. When I was working from home, I downloaded some programs and see that I have two Javas, but am not sure this is causing the problem. After matching the 1.5.0 program settings, I then unchecked using the 1.5.0 under the Internet options to begin using the other 1.3.1 program (that I probably had before). I followed the suggestions to match the automatic configuration script shown to the Java by adding the address there.

I added that configuration due to work, but I tried using the 'automatically detect settings' also, but it doesn't work either. Should I be using the automatically detect settings since I no longer have my office programs on my computer? Nothing I do seems to work.

Does anyone have any other suggestions as to what I can do now? Should I remove one of the Java programs, or is there something else that I should be checking or changing? :)

You'll see the red X when a picture that the browser wants to load doesn't exist where the browser wants it to be. Not a lot you can do in that situation.

Can you post some links to sites that display lots of red X's?
