    I am using IE8 with WinXPsp3. When I open Google (in IE8) and type in a name (not images section), say Cher, I will see all the sites for Cher, but where her pictures are supposed to appear at the top of the (Google) page, they are missing and just white boxes are there. I believe this just happened recently. The only thing I believe "new" is that an update to Java downloaded/installed.

    Is anyone else experiencing the same thing?

    However, if I open FF, I can see the Cher pictures at the top.

    Use IE, go to this page and click "Verify Now" in the Windows section

    http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

    Then close IE, open IE, go back to that page and click "verify Java has been installed correctly. "

    .

    Did that and got "
    Verifying Java Version

    Congratulations!

    You have the recommended Java installed (Version 6 Update 19)."

    I did notice that if I switch to FF, I can see the images of "Cher."

    When in IE 8 and I can't see the Cher on the Search Results page, I clicked on the white box that was there (where the picture should be) and then click on Properties, I see:

    Address: yH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw==

    If I click on the other images that I can see and then click on Properties, I can see a "real" address in the Address box.


    Where are those crazy Addresses coming from on the Cher images. I even clicked on a search for Elvis and no Elvis image came up - just the white box. Same thing when I click on Properties.

    I don't believe I ever saw this previously.

    Can anyone explain?
