Previous Post

I've used Windows 98se for a long time, and just got a computer that has XP.

I've noticed that pictures on web pages seem to take longer loading when using my ISP's browser, and with Internet Explorer (just upgraded to version 7), some pictures just won't load at all. (Others will finally load if I either refresh or do the "control + F5" thing.)

Anyone know if I might have done something wrong to create the problem, or is there something I'm failing to do that would correct it?

PS
I've also noticed that here on comicboards.com, the readout at the bottom of my posts says I'm using Windows NT, rather than XP. Is it possible the guy who sold me the computer used some sort of fake XP software that includes elements of NT? Thanks.

0. It might just be the website(s) you're visiting and/or some disturbance along the Internet. Some images might be hosted by a website other than the site of the page you're viewing.
1. Clear your Temporary Internet Files.
2. Verify that the Show Pictures option has not been turned off.
3. Enable scripting, ActiveX controls, cookies, and Java programs.
4. Verify that the image type is supported by IE. If the file's extension isn't .art, .wmf, .emf, .png, .mov, .xbm, .avi, .mpg, .gif, .jpg, .mpeg, or .bmp, then it's not defaultly supported by IE.
5. Make sure that the ToggleImages.exe Web accessory is not present and disabling images. This is a 3rd-party software. If present, it's on the IE Links toolbar.
6. Make sure that an Internet security, firewall, or cookie-blocking program is not causing the problem.
7. Enable the Auto-Select encoding option.
8. Make sure that the encoding option is set to the correct language.

No. WindowsXP is WindowsNT 5.1. Microsoft discontinued their non-NT operating systems (Win95/98/2000) when they released XP.
