Which browser are you using? Where you used to get a picture do you now get a small red x? Is this happening on all websites?

If you are using Internet Explorer you could go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, Multimedia, make sure that "Show Pictures" is ticked. f you have Firefox - Tools, Options, Content, tick Load images automatically.

Hello difarn, thanks for the reply..I have two browsers Firefox and 'Explorer. The latter is fine , its on firefox where the problem arises. Even this page on PCA is all words .as opposed to 'normal' layout. Have used the Tool-Options-contents, and 'load images automatically is 'ticked'. Thanks again !

Are you using any add ons such as NoScript or AdBlock?

Hello fruitbat, and Woolwell; thanks to you both for the replies// first Woolwell, did a pagestyle check, and thats OK(basic page style ) Fruitbat, yes in 'addons ' I disabled AdBlock- made no difference .. - but-when I clicked 'restart with addons disabled ' (in its safe mode) things behaved normally, for the time being, that is !! Just cannot think what or why things have gone wrong, but then as I said; I am naive PC wise
