    My computer seems to be having trouble loading images from websites. I would go to a site like Amazon.com. The page comes up fine and all of the text is there, but the graphics, backgrounds, and the images aren't showing up. This happens alot of the time on other sites that I try to browse to.

    What could be the problem?

    Well on fireFox you can turn the images off and on tools-options-content and load images should be ticked. But if its not happening on every site you go to it wont be that

    I'm using IE, and this has never happened before today..

    It happens on about 65% of the sites and pages that I try to load...

    Which version of IE?

    You could try going to Tools --> Internet Options --> Advanced in IE and make sure "Show pictures" is checked.

    If it's checked, you should try scanning your computer for viruses and spyware.


    Also, you could give the Firefox browser a try if you haven't already.

    Do you have a wireless router? Sometimes those seem to screw up and not have the internet display images and such sometimes.

    this should help. if not check ur IE program source and see if there is anything missing or check the program files section for a damaged file. If all else fails then install firefox. its better anyways.
