    If you delete your temp internet files it usually fixes it.

    Oh well, so much for the easy solution.:confused:

    Hold down Ctrl and click refresh (or F5). Try it again.

    If that doesn't make it work right, rightclick the image and copy the url from properties, paste it into a new window address bar. Sometimes it'll reload correctly in a window by itself.

    If that doesn't work, go to temp internet files and open it from there instead of on the page.

    Or save it as a bmp and convert it to jpg or gif later with IrfanView or some other image software. That's what I sometimes have to do.

    I found this in my favorites, the MS fix(?):

    Edit:
    P.S. IrfanView fans... new website design and new version 3.80 released with lots of new features. :cool:
