Hi, i've suddenly developed a problem with my hotmail e-mail.When i receive e-mails with pics attatched, all i get is a white square with a red cross in the corner, i right click on it and then click on the show picture pop up, but still the pics wont show. I've been into tools and made sure that the show pics is ticked and it is, i can't think of anything else to do.Any ideas would be welcome,thanks.

This may work, although Hotmail can be a bit difficult :-

Start, Run, type regedit and navigate to registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\PROTOCOLS\Name-Space Handler

Right click and delete both http and ftp then exit regedit.

To be on the safe side make a copy of the keys before deleting them, viz, File, Export and backup the two keys: http and ftp or make a System Restore point in ME or XP.
