How do I stop AVG 8.5 blocking gmail images

  six-h 13:31 13 Nov 2009

Since updating to Virus DB 270.14.63/2500 on both my Vista PC and my XP laptop I notice that images in all gmail messages are blocked.
Is there some way to un-block them or is my AV not working correctly?

Thanks for that smackheadz.
You won't believe it but since posting this query, gmail images are all back to normal!
Not wishing to sound like "Yoda" but "Nothing I have done..!"
I'll never understand the logic of these machines!

just figured out what probably caused it!

Having read the advice of FE regarding "hotspot security", I changed the settings in gmail to use the secure server option.

since then I occasionslly get a message when clicking "display images" asking if I want to display secure info only.
Opting for "No" displays 'em, "yes" blocks 'em.

I presume clicking "No" negates the benefit of the secure server, and I wouldn't take this option if connecting via a hotspot.
