When I am looking at your site some of the gifs have an X (no picture). When I go to" View-
character encoding" it shows that it is set to "Unicode" instead of "Western". I switch it to "Western", and all pictures are visible, but when I go to another page it switches back to "Unicode".
How do I make it stay on "Western".

Hiya and welcome

First off, lets see if clearing the Temp internet files help. Sometime they can cause all sorts of problems, the main one being the X instead of a picture.

Go to Control Panel | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, also remove offline content.
Advanced tab, scroll down to Security. Tick Empty tempory internet files..., Apply and OK.

Now, does it still happen? Also, is it just with this site, or does it happen on any other site? For instance, can you see this gif:

Sorry for not responding sooner. I had my PC apart for a move. Thank you for your help. It works okay now.
