Hi all.

Just getting back into the swing of things after my surgery. Still can't really use my desktop, and I had to buy a new laptop since my other one fried.

I've been having a small problem with the new one, and figured I'd ask the wizards here for any ideas as to how to fix it.

It has to do with pictures and videos.

Some of the pictures, on this site and others, will not display. All I get is a box with a little red "X" in the upper left-hand corner.

It is extremely annoying,

I'm sure it's something simple, as I know it is not uncommon.

While I can build a computer, I'm not that knowledgeable with the operating systems or other software.

Any ideas as to how to fix this?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

It might be security settings on your laptop's browser. If it's Internet Explorer (Exploder) you can go to Tools, Options and under the security tab check the level you are surfing at.

Shot in the dark though.
