All the pictures that come up on the monitor are blurry. The writing is fine and sharp. Does anyone know what the problem could be??

... just images, as in on the web, or any image (including buttons, backgrounds, files etc)

Are you using your ISP's "speed-up" software? The "surf at broadband speeds" software touted by many ISPs merely compresses images to make them load faster, giving terrible picture quality.

If you do have such software installed, try deactivating it and see if you get better images...

Yes. The problem with that kind of thing (and some "normal" dialup ISP's ), is that they do both heavy heavy server side cacheing of images (degrading quality), and changing the way pictures load. If you download an image to disc, it should come clear (good for photo galleries)
