Ever since I upgraded to Internet Explorer 6, I can't see images on about half the sites I visit. I get only image placeholders (the dreaded red x). I have the latest shockwave and flash downloaded programs. What am I missing? I connect via a dsl cable modem.

Welcome to TSG!

Can you list some of the sites you are not seeing images on? The reason I ask, is usually you either see images or you don't. It's quite possible that some of the images you are not seeing aren't inserted properly on the page, or they might be of a specific type, format, etc that might be causing problems.

Since you can see some, but not others, it would be easier to troubleshoot if we know which ones you can and which you can't see.

Hi,

Go to Tools/Internet Options/Advanced, and click 'restore defaults'.
Now go to to the Security tab, highlight 'Internet', and click restore defaults there as well.

That way you make sure the settings for the display of images, and for Java are set correctly.

If still no joy, download and install <A HREF="http://www.microsoft.com/java/vm/dl_vm40.htm">Microsoft Virtual Machine</A>

Good luck,
