what does that little red cross mean?

i hope you will bare with me as i try to explain the problem.

i go onto alot of sporting websites that have little boxes containing breaking news or live text comentary which continually scrolls across the screen.
up until saturday i was able to read them without any problems but now all i get instead of script is a blank box with a little red cross in the top left hand corner.
have i unintentionally reset the computor to reject this type of text?
if so please can anyone tell me how to put things back as before.
i am using xp professional.
many thanks.

Use System restore and Restore to an earlier point before the issue started..

Have your XP CD in the CD Drive...

Go to Start > RUN > Type:


Click "ok"

Let it do what it does...

Its possible that java or flash plugins have been damaged...

You could reinstall them if the above fails.
