Printing pictures from the web

  wotan 20:12 16 Sep 2003

I am attempting to compile something along the lines of a travel brochure,incorporating print and pictures from web sites.My problem is that when I download the pictures, instead of the picture I get a box with a small red cross in one corner, and even clicking on the cross does not produce the picture. I have done this before using Win 98SE and simply used the cut,copy, paste tool, but this does not seem to work in XP.
I am using a 1.8 ghz processor with 512mb memory. and the operating system is XP Home. I am trying to construct the brochure as a MS Word document which can be altered or replicated on other computers, as a teaching aid. Any advice or suggestions would be welcome.

ThanksKitz E Kat, but I still get the box with the cross in it, a friend has suggested it may be something to do with my anti-virus program (Norton A.V.2003) or the size of my Temp. Internet Files, but he cannot tell me how to chec
k this, or change it.

I have NAV and have no problem, you can clean up temp. internet files ....

Start>All Programs> Accessories>System Tools>Disk Clean up, run that....

Hope this helps, can you download any pics or is it just some...

I am unable to download any pictures, I had no problem doing this with my old system, and wonder if this is peculiar to XP as I have no problem with using clip-art files or photographs saved in 'my documents'. It is only when I try to use pictures off the net.
