    When I go online, the graphics on all web pages are very fuzzy, almost as if they are pixelated. Like at the top of pages on techguy.org, that question mark icon and the words tech support guy are very fuzzy. Also, I went to moreflashgames.com to play some games and instead of the game showing up it's just a white box with a red 'x' in the corner. So i'm not sure if it's flash related, but there seems to be no problems with my computer other than that.

    Do you have Flashplayer installed? Are you on dial up or broadband?

    If you are on dial-up, it sounds as though you have a "web accellerator" setting enabled, where your ISP compresses graphics to low quality to make it appear that things load faster.

    I have the program Flash Professional 8, which automatically installs flash player when you get it, so I know that isn't the problem. And I also have several downloaded flash games that play just fine from my desktop.
    The only wierd thing is, I didn't change any settings on my computer, and it never did this before. I know some dial-up services compress images beyond recognition, but the internet was fine. I don't get what would have done this, because it seems like the flash problems and the pictures could be related since they were both fine before and are
