SP2 hiding photos on web pages

  gabby 08:06 27 Aug 2004

Since installing SP2 I cannot see pictures on some Web pages, I get a little red cross in the box.

one of the reasons i am not getting it yet best bet system restore and wait a while.

---- But first check that in Tools - Internet options - Advanced, under the Multimedia heading, "Show pictures" is ticked.

Alternatively if Internet Explorer is giving trouble you can always use Mozilla Firefox instead click here.

To be fair I doubt thit is just because you have installed SP2

Extract from email from gabby:

Thanks for your advice which was nearly right. I manage to sort the problem by going to Tools/Options/Security and unticking the Box marked Block downloaded images and external content in HTML E-Mail.


I think many of the problems people are having with SP2 could be due to the extra security measures being enabled by default, but the users not being told what they are.
