    Why does Internet Explorer 6 Lock up when I try to view JPEG pictures. I have windows 98 second edition. Also, sometimes the pictures come up real small in the top left hand corner of the browser and lock up. Thanks!

    Symptoms
    A Web page may display an image as a red X, or a placeholder may appear in place of the image.
    Cause
    This behavior can occur if one of the following conditions is true:
    The Show Pictures check box is not selected.
    You recently installed a graphics program that changed the file associations for .jpg, .gif, and other image file types.
    Resolution
    To resolve this issue, use the appropriate method.
    Clear the "Show Pictures" Check Box
    Start Internet Explorer.
    On the View menu, point to Encoding, and then click Western European (Windows).
    Verify that Show Pictures has not been disabled:
    On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
    Click the Advanced tab, and then verify that the Show Pictures check box is selected under Multimedia.
    Click OK.
    Restore Default Associations for Graphics File Types
    Make sure that the following file types are associated by default with Microsoft Internet Explorer (Iexplore.exe):
    ART image (.art)
    GIF image (.gfa, .gif)
    JPEG image (.jfif, .jpe, .jpeg, .jpg)

    More Information
    Most Web pages contain information that tells the browser which language encoding (the language and character set) to use. This is normally done by using something similar to "charset=" in the Web page code.

    If the Web page does not include that information, and you have the Language Encoding Auto-Select feature enabled, Internet Explorer can usually determine the appropriate language encoding.

    Forgot to mention I put the pictures on a cd, and thats where I'm viewing them from when they lock up. Same thing viewing from a floppy.
    Tried all the things you told me. Everything is set correct. Still locks up, But not every picture locks up. Just random.

    Then try cleaning out all the temp files on your computer and remove all the programs from start up that are not needed.

    Instructions can be found at the following site and followed by the 3 red *'s IN the table of contents. Once you do this it should work a lot better.
