    Browser settings

    What browser and version are you using? Is this a home computer or a business computer? On a network? It sounds like you are blocking images in the browser settings.

    IE Check: Tools -> Options -> Advanced and check your settings
    FF Check: Tools -> Options -> Content

    Allow images to be displayed


    Hope that's all it is

    myspace.com users tend to link to pictures from other sites willy-nilly; and the owners of those sites put measures in place to prevent it.

    If your problem concerns only myspace, I shouldn't worry. Try reputable sources, and see if you get the same problem.
