I have changed default aps with no success. I can view some pics and threads, however many times I can only see an icon and when I click on it nothing happens.

For example this link:

Does that web-page look ok in Internet Explorer ?

Nope... still no pics. However, the frames for the pics are now visible.
See Explorer example:

That is being caused by some sort of adblocker or web protection.
the images come from the Word Press CDN and some security tools or adblockers wrongly block those as adverts, tracking or similar. I am guessing it will be the Avast web protection component somehow blocking, unless you are using another adblocker software

No joy... could find no evidence of any Avast ad blocking software or any other ad blocking software??

Try turning of Avast completely & see if you get the images

OK lets see what this shows
I don't for one moment think it is malware related but this will show me a lot of detail to help trackdown the cause ( hopefully)
Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop or downloads folder.

Note: You need to download and run the 64 bit version

  • Right click to run as administrator. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.
  • Please copy and paste log back here.
  • The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory/folder/place as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe). Please also paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply.

Windows 7 computer:
I use noscript and uBlockOrigin in Palemoon and can see the pictures on that site.
In IE 11, I use AdBlockPlus and can see the pictures.

So I don't think it is caused by an ad blocker.
