sometimes instead of a picture on web page all I get is a blank window with a small box in the corner containing a red square, a blue triangle and a green circle.
Would be very gratefull if anyone could help me on this. O/S is xp pro

The chances are that the reference which tells the browser where the picture for the website has been stored, is incorrect. This could be because the picture has been moved or because the person who has written the page wrote the reference incorrectly or, if the picture is coming from an entirely different server, that server could be down at the time.

It's probably not something controlled from your end if it only happens occasionally.

This happens when I am viewing Off Line. The picture is not available as I haven't saved it.

Can you give me an example of a site where this happens, and I can take a look to see whether it is your machine or a site error?

Have you got Java Virtual Machine. If not click here and on the right you will see JavaVM under popular downloads.

It is looking for a .jar file which, as Irishman says, is a Java file.

In IE, Tools/Internet Options, Advanced tab ensure that the Java options are ticked.
