windows XP home, brand new computer, click on webcam pictures, some display - some only show a red X in the top left corner of a box where the picture should be - what could be the problem, never had this problem with win 98 SE ! Help please Jim

red x picture

and you will see 39,500,000 references.

The first will probably be enough.

In internet explorer

Go to tools>Internet options>advanced

Under the multimedia section tick the box that says "Show Pictures"

Also, just above that untick "Show Image download Placeholders"

Hi the internet options are already as you suggest.


Thanks for your reply, but the box "show pictures" is ticked & one above is not, any further advise please?

Please please do NOT e-mail members, put a response in the forum so others can help
