No picture,just a red cross in a box

  SB23 11:48 26 Oct 2005

For about 2 weeks now,nearly every web page that looks as though it should contain a picture just has a red cross in a box in the top left hand corner,and before anyone says anything,I know that this subject has been covered before,but for the life of me,everything I do,I cannot get the pictures to return.Even adverts are flashing clear boxes at me with the red cross at the top.Am I doing something wrong,please help.

In Tools>Options>advanced tab check that under multimedia there is a tick in "show pictures". If not, put one in, Apply and then OK. Refresh the page (F5)and see if it cure`s the problem.

The only box that isn't ticked in that section is "show image download placeholders",everything else is ticked with no difference.

Do I really need to use that,as I've always used CCleaner,without any problems.Doesn't that do the same thing without the risk to the hard drive?

What firewall, anti virus, spyware killers are you using?

McAfee suite 2005,ad-aware,spybot,ccleaner,I think that's it,oh,and Microsoft antispyware is on the system,but I find usually the others find problems first,but I don't understand why all of a sudden pages/pictures are not loading.
