I know that this subject has been discussed before but the solutions dont work for me.. Instead of images I often get the dreaded little red X.. System uses Win 98 ie 5.5 sp2.. "Advanced" show pictures is ticked,

Don't forget, Ghloria, you will get those little red X's if the image hasn't been uploaded properly by the website designer. So check the page out first on another computer, if the red X's are still there, it's probably the designer's error.

I use "Norton ". Does the first fix adversely affect "Norton" performance..

The second link didnt work.. But in "View, Encoding", should Western European (Windows) be selected as mine was on Unicode.

1. I don't know for sure but I doubt it.

2. Mine (IE 6) is set on autoselect and it is Unicode.

I dont think that all the X's are design problems. It happens in OE as well.

I don't know if this piece of trivia will be helpful.

I sometimes see those "red x's" in OE. This occurs when I loose my connection to the internet. Are you sure your connection is fine.

One more thing to try, Right Click on the problem image & select refresh. If the picture DONT show I can assure you the problem lies with the server & not your computer.

I'll ask about the settings in another thread.

I haven't read VoG™'s links, Ghloria, so if the suggestion to try........ emptying your temporary internet files folder....... is a repeat, I apologise.

click here Just in case it's a Java problem.

Restore Default Associations for Graphics File Types
Make sure that the following file types are associated by default with Microsoft Internet Explorer (Iexplore.exe):
ART image (.art)
GIF image (.gfa, .gif)
JPEG image (.jfif, .jpe, .jpeg, .jpg)

Funny this because as far as I can see these file types are not associated with IE as default. Anyway I have tried this before without success and I still get the red x's although now it usually happens with OE.
