    Missing pictures (Explorer 6.0)

    I was propmted to download an updated version of Explorer (not sure which version to be honest - I guess it's the latest?) last night as the site i was wanting to see wouldn't open without it (SimCity.com if you must know!). I downloaded it OK, although it took a while, I can now open the site but not the pictures don't appear! I have a red "X" where the picture should be...I can right click on this and select "Show Picture", but don't know why it is happening. It also happens on other sites that i could access before without a problem. Is there something in the set-up i need to change??
    Thanks,

    Re: Missing pictures (Explorer 6.0)

    Under Help about, what does it say for version? There have been threads about this before (can't wait until we can search again). <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> There's no one cause or cure. Under Internet Options/Advanced, make sure "Expand Alt text for images" & show pictures is checked, & "Show picture download placesholders" is UNchecked. The encoding can also affect this. Changing the encoding while you're on a page to use Western or Unicode sometimes helps.

    If you can show pictures manually, then check that this setting is turned on:

    Tools > Internet Options... > Advanced > Multimedia > Show Pictures

    Re: Missing pictures (Explorer 6.0)

    One other thing to try is Start/Settings/Control Panel/Add_Remove Programs/scroll to Microsoft IE 6 etc.. Then select Add/Remove. A dialog box will open & you can select Repair. This often cures it.

    However it does make some changes to my setup that I don't like. When I'm done doing that, I do the following:
    DUN didn't work automatically. I had to go to Internet Options/Connections/LAN/ & uncheck the proxy checkmark & also uncheck the "perform security test". Must also check Internet Options/Connections/Settings/Automatically detect settings. Must remove IE shortcut from desktop, Quick Launch, & StartMenu/Programs. Must remove Create Shortcut from SendTo menu & Show Desktop from Quick Launch.
    Hope this helps,

    Will try this later.
    In the mean time I found post 273012 on 3rd July 03...it contains a lot of info and links to Microsof and Norton Personal Firewall....turns out I had to add it to a list of permitted sites (or similar). It was a bit long winded, but worked.
    Thanks for the help,
    Al.
