Thread: Web Page Displays an Image As a Red X

    I have a P4/1.2Ghz, 768 Meg of ram, and am using WinXp Pro as my OS. The problem I am having is that on some web pages, the images appear as a small red x in a small box. I have used WinMe on this same system and didn't have this problem. I have found numerous references to this but none of the solutions are working for me. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

    You wouldn't happen to be running Norton Personal Firewall, would you?

    If so, uninstall it then reinstall it.

    if the problem is just with some web pages then it cd be a problem with some kinda ads blocker...stopping .gif images. it can be a problem with web page too...if the image is deleted from the server while the page has not yet been it will show a red cross.
    a slow connection is another culprit...:D

    You've gone through all the settings in IE 6 Tools>Internet Options>Advanced, especially the "Show Pictures" option? Just trying to cover the basics first.

    Try right-clicking on one of the red X's, copy the URL and paste it into your address bar. Does the picture come up then? If so then it's an IE6 setting and not a general connection problem.
