On some web pages images and links appear as solid red boxes.For example this PC Advisor page has three red boxes; when I right click on the red area, "properties" showa the the alternate text as "click here"
I get the same irresspective of the browser I use.
I have tried, Tools>internet options>advanced and everything is enabled. I have looked at this int eh browsers and control panel.

Try and disable any ad blockers that you have running.

If this is recent try System Restore

I would bet on it being an ad blocker! Took me ages to figure it oput when it happened to me recently. I then realised that NTL Netguard was the culprit!

The Blueyonder (Telewest) ad blocker was the culprit.It was deciding that some Banners and links were ads. Now I've disabled it everything is fine.
