    No Pictures on Web Pages

    Got a friend with a laptop running Windows Vista. No pictures will display on web pages when using Internet Explorer. There's just a faint border where the pictures should be, not even that little red X that indicates the image can't be displayed. I checked with another laptop, the pictures are just JPG. Any suggestions as to how to fix this?

    Have you tried lots of different websites? If the problem happens on all websites, then it could be a problem with either IE or Windows.

    What about other browsers? Have your friend try Firefox, Chrome, Brave (www.brave.com). See if the problem exists with those browsers. If it doesn't, then you know that the issue is with IE. If it does, then it's probably a Windows issue.

    Do you have ActiveX Filtering enabled - that is shown by a small blue No Entry sign in the URL search box.

    Check that "Show Pictures" hasn't been turned off in the browser. Its sometimes done to enable faster loading.

    Open the Microsoft Internet Explorer "Tools" menu and choose "Internet Options." Click on the "Advanced" tab.

    Scroll through the Settings to the Multimedia section. Tick the check box in front of "Show Pictures."

    Click on the "Apply" button to change the settings.
