Using a desktop PC (HP Pavilion, about two years old) with XP Professional (with all the upgrades) and IE8 (I know, I know, but I’m too lazy to learn a new browser) I occasionally will see on my screen, instead of a picture which is evidently supposed to be there, a large blank box with a much smaller box with a red X in it in the upper left hand corner.
This doesn’t happen all the time, and I can’t discern any factors that consistently are present that would trigger this. It is not the same thing that can be cured by clicking on the line that says “…pictures have been blocked to prevent identification, click on this line to allow the pictures”, or something about like that. It’s probably something that has been set up in the security panel for the Internet browser, but I can’t find where the problem lies.
If any of you gurus have an idea here I would certainly be grateful.
It might be that the answer can be found in Microsoft help, but I’m firmly of the belief that their motto is “Abandon hope, all ye who enter here”, and that life’s too short to get tangled up in that morass. And I’ve got a lotta faith in the Dope.
