Hi guys, A guy over at amdforums told me to post here about my problem. I've included an attachment on my problem, where I get red x's instead of the pictures, I know they are there as when I reload it or right click show picture it's there. I've ran norton virus scan, the online norton virus scan and mcafee virus scan.

I forgot that I've also tried "uninstalling" IE and reinstalling it, repatching it to SP1 updates but it has already said it's been updated (stupid M$). I've set everything back to defaults in the internet options, security etc etc. GoogleBar doesn't seem to be the problem as I turn off the popup blocker and it makes no difference. My host file is clean and has nothing blocked except for the kazaa ones when you installed.

I ran adaware, spybot s&d but uninstalled it as it causes explorer.exe to crash and restart at random times. CWSshredder nothing, I've ran HiJack This and it looks pretty clean to me, I've googled everything I didn't regonized, heres the log.

I get red Xs instead of the pictures, I know they are there as when I reload it or right click show picture it's there.

Your HjT log looks clean. It would appear that your problem lies elsewhere. Note that one image did load. To start with, check this link (image-loading-problem patch). I'll also look into it further and report back.

What happens if you right click on the red X and click "Show Picture" in the menu?

Yea, most pictures will load up, but one will not which reoccurs for the other ones.

Thanks for the link, I didn't see this when I was searching through the M$ knowledge base. I'll post back with the results later, thanks!

When I right click show picture, it will show up. Then I can refresh and some other picture that had showed up break.

I've finally got the dang update installed, I had to force install it as it didn't see I had IE6 SP1. *note to self, don't bother "removing IE"*

For now I'm seeing no problems.

Went to another message board and it happened again, will see if it reoccurs.

Yep it's still happening :sad:

Hmm can't edit my previous post, sorry for triple posting. But I found some more info.
There is another fix that is kinda related to the one tallcool had given me, but I cannot find a download for it. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;824220&Product=ie600

Then theres a more recent one to this same problem where M$ is looking into it here. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;837489&Product=ie600

Soooo hopefully there will be a fix soon or at least in SP2, thanks for the help guys!

FIRST of all. Make sure of the simple stuff. Like that you don't have the "Show Pictures" disabled.

Goto "Tools" then "Internet options" click on "advanced" tab and look for "Multimedia" be sure you got "Show Pictures" with a check in the box.

SECONDLY it may be a good idea to make Internet Explorer associated with .gif and .jpeg files by going to "Start" button "Settings" and "Folder Options" and then the "File types" tab. And see what's going on there.

THIRDLY (and this is the one likely to fix the prob) goto "regedit" and get to the key


....and changing the value for Default to "cp_1252.nls"

this is the file name for Western European (Windows)

... if none of that works for you, try to repair IE:

Go to START>>RUN and type in rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance

Choose the repair option.

Let me know if any of this helped you.

This has no effect whatsoever on displaying graphics within HTML pages--in fact, IE is about the worst program to use for displaying stand-alone graphics. IrfanView or XnView are much better for that--and they're both free.

I appreciate your input, though.

This is ONLY for troubleshooting purposes and NEVER left that way ;)

I don't even use either of the above for viewing graphics, but recommend them to others (mostly IfranView for resizing siggys) as well as GIMP ;)

I just like to cover ALL bases when troubleshooting issues such as these, and saw a few things that "I" would do based on my expertise ;)

i've got them too
X's all over
i know iam dumb with computers but i can build custom motorcycles
any help
i have 2 brousers 1 walmart connect
2 microsoft E
walmart works great but the big E got X's its most likely something i ve done

:) Hello,

I am TexasKat and I found you by going to Ask.com and typing in red x's. I used to never have this problem. Seems like since I started using Vista, ( now hang on I happen to love Vista) I have been plagued with this problem. It doesn't happen all the time but enough that is very frustrating to me and also the to the recipients of my emails. Most of my pictures are in gif format because they are head tags and they are saved in Animation Shop which is made by JASC which used to be the owners of Paint Shop Pro. I also use Incredimail for my email program. I know everything to check in IE and also in FireFox and also in Incredimail. All those items are checked off. I have a clean computer and I keep it that way. I am totally baffled on what to do or if it is a problem that is caused by Vista or what. I have not been able to find out too much other than the things that I have known to do.

If there are any suggestions or remedies I would certainly appreciate it very much. I am not the smartest computer person but I'm not the dumbest either. I have self taught myself starting with an Apple IIE computer back in the last 80's and graduating on to an IBM clone and Windows 3.1, all the way up to Vista. I appreciate any help that you can give me on this problem. I am running Vista Home Premium.

Thanks in advance for any help.

:) TexasKat

RED X causes:

1. Not enough RAM to display the pictures. Upgrade is the only cure.

2. Not enough Internet Cache space reserved to hold the pictures. Reset the size so the entire page fits in the cache.

3. The files are not present on the website server. The webmaster has to deal with this. If it's your site, you must upload the files.

4. No public permission set on the photos. The webmaster must set the permission levels on the photo files to allow public access to download them.

5. Security settings on your browser. If the security is too strict, photos won't download.

6. File contents don't match the extension. If the file is a .gif file, but has a .jpg extension, the browser fails when trying to display the image. The file type might also be one the browser doesn't know how to handle. Stick with .gif and .jpg, unless you are sure that all of your users can use the file type you have.

7. No permission to download photos through your ISP.

8. Firewall blocking photo download. This is especially prevalent in some business networks, to keep employees from downloading porn.

9. Strange monitor configuration, where the browser can't send images to your monitor.

10. Browser set to text-only mode.
