    Do you use any proxies or filtering programs?

    Hi Tex,

    If it isn't a temporary internet glitch the two most likely causes are:

    1. Advert blocker, probably set to too small an image size.
    2. Somehow your file associations for .gif/.jpg files have gotten screwed up.

    What browser are you using?

    Cheers

    Texan,
    You might have your permissions (under IE>Tools>Internet Options) set to not show images. Or it is possible that you have tweeked you system to not show HTML content but only plain text. Also you could have your system set for maximum speed versus appearance and that could be causing you to drop images.

    To check this quickly, restore your system to a previous date when every thing worked right, and write the setting that are there down. Then undo the restore and compare them with what you have now.

    Correct as needed or wanted.

    Hi Tex,

    I think you may have your own answer. I had a problem with M$ Jave corruption, and it was only when I uninstalled it, and only the Sun one was running that the AO site worked properly again.

    Cheers
