    Hi.. I've been looking for help all over the internet and I'm so happy I finally found this forum and was able to join..
    Running Windows xp:
    I cannot view "most" pictures when I go to a site through Internet Explorer. For example.. if I go to myspace.com, I can't see any "friends" pictures, (not even my own)
    I have an account with photobucket and when I log in, all of the names of my pictures are there but not one picture is showing.. If I do a search for something, same thing..

    The pictures that I have saved in my computer are there..it's only when I'm using IE.
    I recently downloaded software for a printer/scanner/fax machine from the internet which I know I shouldn't do but I had to!:rolleyes: and I think I remember seeing somewhere in this forum that this could be my problem?
    I've already checked tools/Internet options/show pictures/ and view/encoding/Western European (which likes to jump and change itself now and then but I don't care about that right now!!

    Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks, Judy

    Open IE>Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab and under Multimedia checkmark "Show pictures", click Apply/OK.

    I've done that also..sorry I didn't mention it in my original post! This is so strange and I have a feeling it's just a simple click fix but somehow I'm missing something.. Thank you for trying!

    Try emptying your temp internet files and cookies. It sounds like the page is not refreshing properly and it is loading a cached copy .

    Ok.. I did that and nothing. The weird thing is, I went to myspace.com this morning and all of the images that were suppose to show up did, when I went to another page (on myspace) and then went back to "home" they were gone again.. just an empty space..no square with the red x, nothing. This is really frustrating to say the least.. I'm about to go buy a new pc lol.. Thanks Anyway. Judy

    Judy, When you delete your Temporary Internet Files make sure that when that pop-up window appears checkmark the small "Delete all off-line content" box.
