    Windows Media Player no longer displays images (sound is OK). Also, red placeholders are now displayed in Internet Explorer. This happened after I tried to clean up the PC using a number of programmes - Spybot, Windows Defender, AdAware etc. I've upgraded from Windows XP Home to XP Pro - I thought it might help in some way. I've also installed a new DVD decoder. Any suggestions please?

    doubtful this happend but maby something attached to your mediaplayer files and adware or 1 of the others deleted it for that reason... 1 of the programs you used might have also falsely picked up a visual file as a adware and deleted it, i would suggest installing a new version of windows media player & then usin your spy / adware stuff 1 by 1 cleaning your pc again see what program does it ... if it does it again & delete the program thats doing that find a substitute if need be for its replacement afterward... hope i helped some...
