I notice that most of the (other peoples') avatars on the left of my pages have been replaced with a black cross and so have all of the adverts. Can anyone advise what I may have done wrong and how to correct it?

Thanks

Thanks Lenny but I an mot aware that I have changed any settings - I am not that good with anything IT so tend to keep to very basic stuff. Also, it is not all avatars that are affected e.g. I see a picture of your van in your avatar.

Thats a bit odd, have you tried another browser?

Thanks Lenny,

Using a different browser seems to have cured the problem. Any idea why the original browser suddenly started doing that?

Something coruptedin the settings, you could try uninstalling the browser & reinstalling use a uninstall program like Revo Uninstaller to ensure registry entries get cleared as well, don't forget to save your bookmarks first. then reboot and reinstall.

...it may not have been you altering anything, it may have been your browser helpfully upgrading itself, in the background, to the latest "improved" version :rolleyes:.

Software producers are compulsive tweakers & fiddlers, always improving & adding extra facilities that most users don't want or need*.
They certainly don't belong to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" community :whistle:


*security flaws excepted.

Have you been in Salisbury at the weekend ? Are those Russians after you again ?

And why do you say "again"? Do you know something that should not have been given general circulation?
