Do you have a new antivirus on your computer? If you do, that could be the problem. I've had it before and I had to configure it so that I wouldn't be seeing broken images all over the place. If that's your problem, I'll be more than happy to help you.

pichusb.com is the only one with all its images...

Maybe it's Norton Firewall. It has been blamed for blocking images. If you have it on your computer, disable it.

hmm... is that part of norton system works???

Um, Norton Internet Security seems to block all images, you can try removing that or seeing if your ISP has something to do with it?

thanks kairi. is norton system works 2003 got anything to do with a firewall?

June 24th, 2004, 4:21 PM
The NSW 2003 firewall may be blocking it, if you disable it and they work, then thats it. But...I didn't think SW had a firewall, oh well.

June 24th, 2004, 4:26 PM
OH WELL?!? come on! i REALLY need help here...

NSW 2003 doesn't come with a firewall. I have NSW 2003 and I've had no major problems with it so far. Do a virus scan or something. Although I don't know how a virus could do that to a computer.

Well if it's not a firewall blocking access to website content and it's not your IE image settings it may be your IE security settings.
Go to Tools > Internet Options > Security : Then check your Internet Settings, my IE is set to medium, but I suppose medium or medium-low would be fine. When viruses threaten yer computer you should set this to high.

After that, i suggest checking out what's in your trusted and restricted sites. trusted sites allow all downloads and images while restricted blocks all images n stuff.

I would then click over to the Privacy Tab check to see if that's set to medium.

If you haven't already, go to the Advanced Tab and click restore defaults. If after all of that images still don't work I would try browsing the web with a diffrent web browser. I would suggest Mozilla Firefox http://texturizer.net/firefox/download.html it's one of the best bowsers (imo)

I'm moving this topic to the Computer Help and Discussion forum. We're testing to see if this forum could be successful in other chat so it's on a one week trial basis.

another thing you can do is force your browser to always load the page (and not cache it)
tools > internet options > general tab > temporary internet files > settings > check for newer version of stored pages > every visit to the page (radio button)
this will slow down your browsing a bit cause IE has to load new pages each time u visit a site but it's worth it if your having browsing issues or like to see current pages.

you can also clear your cache files (same place as above) that may help a little..
