    Not seeeing Ads is usually counted as a blessing. What's in the ads place, a small red X?

    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.

    The 'page can not be displayed' errors are related to your, or the website's, connectivity. The remote server could be flooded with requests, like during a Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack for example.

    Make sure you do the following. Scan for virus, Trojan or variant on-line at http:/housecall.trendmicro.com Ensure your on-board AV scanner is updated weekly, I hope you're Not using Mcaffee. And ensure you have a firewall running like free Sygate from http://download.com.com/3000-2092-10184369.html?tag=lst-0-1 You must be on-line to register free Sygate during its install process, you initiate by double-clicking the download.
