    I take it you`re talking about pictures inside web pages.

    If so, go to the macromedia website, and download, and install the latest flash player.

    You can get the flash player HERE

    If you use Firefox, click on Tools/Options/Web Features.
    TICK 'Load Images' and UNtick 'for the originating website only'.

    if it is for IE, try a spyware search. if u r using proxy, try direct connection instead of proxy.

    or change your security setting - may not allows pics in some cases.

    also if you right click and click 'show picture' it usually downloads.

    are you running any other spyware or anti virus programmes? might be settings on those
