  1. Hi all,

    Not really an audio/vid qu but didnt know where else to put it,

    When browsing web sites some pictures, for example a graph, wont show, instead i just get an empty box with a red 'X' in the corner!

    Its not all graphics and graphs etc just some of them but its driving me nuts!!! PLEASE can anyone help me on how to solve this!!!

    Much appreciated!!!

    BFG

    that is most likely a security or privacy setting in internet options in control panel. blocking those images.

    Hey

    I have noticed that the defaults on IE is about correct for any browsing, you don't really have to change any settings.

    What you do need, which is not default, is Java Runtime Enviroment from java.sun.com

    I think that would sort your problem...
    Good luck...

    When there is a picture on something, alot of times its linked to somewhere else. a site. unless its copy and pasted. if it is, that site may require certain settings to view content correctly. ex. cookies enabled/disabled
