    Default Outlook Express won't display pics

    Outlook Express displays photos sent OK, but when I get what seem to be forwarded web pages, the writing displays but the images don't. Have tried clicking on the images (which show as red crosses) but can't get them to show. Any ideas please?

    Hi weemaxcat - Try some of these, compliments of Steamwiz, from a similar post some time back. Regards
    1. Go to - View - encoding - select "western european (windows)" repair ie if not sticking

    2. Check that Show Pictures has not been disabled:

    On the Tools menu, click Internet Options\Advanced - scroll down to Multimedia and
    tick " Show Pictures"
    untick "show image placeholders"
    Click OK .

    3. Restore Default Associations for Graphics File Types :

    Go to Folder Options/File Types, and make sure that the following file types are associated by default with Microsoft Internet Explorer (Iexplore.exe):
    ART image (.art)
    GIF image (.gfa, .gif)
    JPEG image (.jfif, .jpe, .jpeg, .jpg)

    4. Install the latest version of "Microsoft Virtual Machine"

    5. It could be caused by your firewall

    6. If some of the images are on adverts and you have "spyblocker" installed - this will not only block some ad's but also show a red X instead of a picture

    7. Of course it could be that the pictures are no longer on the website - could you give an example of website and picture which is not working for you ?

    8." cleaning " your computer may also clear this problem so....
    delete your temporary files.....your temporary internet files.....and clear your ie history

    9. Check out this Microsoft link :-

    10. (Thanks to Rollin' Rog) See this Norton link regarding NIS

    Also try disabling the "privacy" feature, we've seen that cause problems as well...

    Thanks for your quick reply Galena.
    Have tried some of the suggestions. Some of the images were ads, but not all. Have checked the website - an example of one is(perso.wanadoo.es/amasats/index1.html) and the images are still there.
    Cleaning out temp files etc made no difference.
    Checked out the link in 9 and find I can't add a web site to my Norton 2003 product to exclude it.
    The Norton link is 10 is no longer valid.

    Thanks anyway. I may get my friend to resend the web page to see if it now works with the changes made so far.
