I have searched similar topics but have not found the specific problem that I have. Certain web sites (including this one) initally do not display correctly until I click on a link on the page then hit the back button and the page displays correctly. Specifically, gif & jpg images do not display & the text, paragraphs, etc. do not look right until I go back. Also, If I copy and paste the url of the image directly in a new window, the image will display correctly. This problem only affects IE version 6.0.2600.0000.CO. If I use Firefox there is no problem. Also, Outlook Express 6.0 displays a red X in place of images in messages, not sure if this is related or not. Any help is appreciated.

red Xs in Outlook Express instead of images is usually a permissions thing. In Win98 I think you can uninstall and reinstall IE. Have you tried that? How do you connect to the Internet? How old is the computer, did it ever work properly, and when did the problem begin? Have you installed any ad blocking software? I know I have lots of questions, but I'm fishing for more clues.

Thanks for the quick response. To answer your questions: 1. I have not tried to re-install IE yet. 2. I connect w/ DSL . I just recently upgraded from 56K dialup but I had the problem before then. 3. The computer is approx. 8 - 9 yrs old, P3 450, still works OK. 4. I cannot remember a specific time when the problems started. 5. I do have ad blocking software from earthlink, Hmm ? I have attached a screenshot of what this page looked like before I hit the back button. Hope it works. It might be of some help. Thanks again for your time.

Its not a permission thing or the pics wouldn't show up at all.

When was the last time you cleared your cache?

Try emptying it either manually and delete everything or use the link below to download a little app that will do it selectively so you can keep your cookies.

I tried clearing my cache & still have the problem. I think the key to the problem is that the page will display perfectly after I click on a link on that page, then hit the back button & everything is good. It's like the initial scripting is not recognized by the browser until I go back. Also, I have enabled script error notification & get the following errors: 'img_item' is undefined , object unexpected

IF you don't have IE as a listing you will need to download and reinstall
