    I have a Dell computer running Windows XP. I've noticed that certain websites are not displaying properly; graphics are missing from some pages (not all graphics, just one or two). For example, the banner at the top of nytimes.com will not show. There doesn't seem to be an order to the missing graphics; it seems to be randomly blocking certain graphics, both jpg and gif. If I visit a new site, I do not know if I'm seeing all there is to see!

    Does anyone have any idea what would cause this problem? I have my security settings at "Medium." I also use McAfee virus scan and firewall.

    Thanks in advance for any input you can offer!

    I've seen something similar with firefox. If you have the option to only display pictures from the originating website ticked it doesn't display all the graphics.

    I don't know if there's a similar option in Internet Explorer as i try not to use it these days. There is a forum with a similar problem, but i can't provide a link as i didn't think to copy it down. A quick search should give you what you need here.

    In Internet Explorer, click Tools > Internet Options > then click the Security Tab.

    In here you will see some icons. Internet, Local Intranet, Trusted Sites and Restricted Sites.

    Click each of these in turn and click the "Default Level" Button at the bottom right. When you have done this, click apply then clcik the General tab and click "Delete Files" under the Tempory inrernet files section in the middle, then click ok.

    Close all Internet Explorer windows and re-open one. Then try going to a site that your having problems with. Hopefully it should be ok.

    It seems it could be a pop up blocker program running or a firewall if the last post didn't help.

    Thanks to everyone who responded! The problem is resolved. A setting in McAfee Privacy Center was the culprit.
