red x instead of pictures

  awest3 10:35 02 Apr 2007

I've looked through other threads on this but can't seem to find an answer....On some sites I visit I get a red X instead of pictures or in fact anything else (no words are shown but the web page says done...) Symantec internet security 7 would seem to be the prime suspect (I installed it a couple of weeks ago) but I can't see anything to switch off, it may be to do with pop-ups being blocked but I've turned all of them off (google, yahoo, internet options etc)..I'm now at a loss as to where to look..I have a dell 3.4ghz, 1 gig mem, using IE7 and running XP Service opt 2.

Any help would be appreciated...

try to remove internet security 7 via add/remove programs. if all is well the internet security 7 must be it. if not symantec might think thay are ads and blocking them. add/remove is a good idea, and if it goes wrong, use system restore.

Thanks for these....I've tried the solutions from provider2...but to no avail...

is there a way to switch off/disable Norton without having to uninstall it..? I seem to remember this facility in the previous version..

Thanks wotbs,

I tried this one earlier..but again to no avail..

yes I seem to remember this being a regular I thought would be quite easy to solve..its normally a security feature thats switched on in either a browser or security package...but I think I've tried all those and still no joy...I'm probably missing something quite simple...
Thansk again..

I had this problem myself some time ago but for the life of me I can't remember what resolved it. In IE, if you right click the desktop icon, properties, advanced, there is a box to tick which says "Show Pictures". I have a tick in mine so you could check that. I use FireFox and under Tools, Options, Content there is a tickable box "Load images automatically". I am sure getting rid of the red cross and seeing the images, was very simple. Sorry not to be of much more use.

Have you had no success with Resolution 7. and the two symantec references?

Have a look at my old post, can't remember exactly what worked, but there may be a few links that will help.

I hope something helps.
