I am getting the red crosses everywhere.On my own website's as well.
I teach textile art online and when students send in work l need to see it, if l go online and go to a site where there is any pictures its the same, is there anything you can do to get rid of them as it stopping my work., am on XP

They are place markers for pictures. Either you have set your internet security so that it will not download pictures from a different address from that you are looking at or someone has sent you a file from their computer without sending you the pictures.

Right-click on the red cross and see if the option to view the picture comes up.

Go through your security programmes one by one as most of them have settings to turn off pictures etc

I'm thinking of IE6, your firewall, your virus checker, your spyware catcher etc

It may well be that more than one is set to block

Go to a site where pictures are being blocked. Turn the security settings down or off one by one and refresh the page. It's unlikely to be the virus checker. Leave that on
