I followed the instructins
"If You are using IE7, please read this"

I do not believe that anything on my laptop has changed since yesterday.

I displayed your reviews and all your pictures are showing for me. Have you tried refreshing your screen on that page (hold down the CTRL key and click on the curvy reload arrow at the top of your browser).

If this is not the problem, can you give us more detail on what you are doing and the link for the page you are on when this happens? Thanks.

Sorry I didn't do a better job of explaining.
What I can not see are pictures that are in the message boards.
One example is a thread by LynnRowe. I will find it and get back to you.

It was on 7/31/12 by LynnRowe titled SewDucky.
When the thread displayed there was a little black box with a red X in it under the sentence.
When I pulled it up just now I can see that there is a link where the black box with red X was before.
the link is called "Sew Ducky".
the link took me to Emma One Sock where there is a little black box with a red X in it.
Wonder why I saw the black box with the red x a few days ago and today I can see the link?

There was another thread, I don't remember which one, on 7/31/12 that had the same issue.
I think what is confusing is I could see other pictures inside threads?
thanks for any help you can offer.

My guess is that it is traffic on the net - nothing on your PC. It is usually the site you are looking at or the site linked to from the site you are looking at, or web traffic, or your own internet provider is jammed, as it were. Never change your own PC settings if you see something once. Try shutting down and rebooting after five minutes or so. If the same thing happens, and only on one or two photos or threads - wait till later on. I bet you 80-90% of the time it is not you. If, after several things seem odd over a few days, then maybe it's you.If there is no virus alert, and no other problems, relax and give time a chance.

Also, in order to judge the general state of the net, I check here if something is very slow - just because the site I am looking at isn't one of the mentioned sites, if several or even one really large one is pink or yellow you know the net is very busy.

Down Right Now

Thanks Muffet, I have put the link in my favorites for future use.
the link I had problems with was to Emma One Sock and when I looked on that site yesterday none of the pictures displayed, only the black box with a red X.
