    I've just reinstalled Windows XP on my laptop, running IE 6.0. However, on quite a few webpages (eg amazon, ebay) I get lots of the red "x"s instead of pictures or text links. Some pages also bring up error messages about debugging. Any ideas?

    Go to Tools>Internet Options>Security tab and make sure it is set to Internet Zone.
