Reply to Lev's Post: sorry for the wait man, had to get some kip.
no it wasnt there on the five pages of motors that came up. ive got bt broadband
Expert:  Lev replied 10 years ago.

Because you may see the image by itself - the image is not blocked. You have a nice connection - so it is not a download problem. I suspect that temporary files are displayed instead of actual images.


I would suggest you to clean cach. On your browser go to menu Tools->Internet Options. There are three places to clean:



  • On the General Tab click Delete Cookies. Click OK on confirmation message etc

  • Click on Delete Files. Ckech to delete all offline context. OK etc

  • Click on Clear History. Click Yes on confirmation page. etc

Close all browsers. Open again and click on the link - http://www.autotrader.co.uk/


Let me know if this help, otherwise we would work out other direction.

Close all browsers and give a try.

Verify that Show Pictures has not been turned off in Internet Explorer:



  • On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

  • Click the Advanced tab, and then verify that the Show Pictures check box is selected under Multimedia.

  • Click OK.

Let give another try...

Make sure scripting, ActiveX controls, cookies, and Java applets are enabled in Internet Explorer. To do so, follow these steps:



  • On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  • Click the Security tab, and then click Default Level (if it is available) for the zone which contains the Web page (for example, Internet).

If you are using Internet Explorer 6, click the Privacy tab, and then click Default (if it is available).


Also verify that this site is not listed in teh Restricted Sites.

Are you are using a third-party Internet security, firewall, or cookie blocking program?
Customer: replied 10 years ago.
Reply to Lev's Post: still no joy mate. the security im using is McAfee security
Expert:  Lev replied 10 years ago.
can you disable McAfee security for some time and give a try?

Reply to Lev's Post: the problem started when i had my old security which was norton. does that help at all?
Expert:  Lev replied 10 years ago.

It may cause the problem. What we fould out at the begining - the image itself is displayed, but as a part of page - is not. If you are using a third-party Internet security, firewall, or cookie blocking program, they may block scripting, ActiveX controls, cookies, Java applets, advertisements, and HTTP referral information. For instance, if you have Norton Internet Security (NIS) or Norton Personal Firewall (NPF) installed, see the following Symantec Corporation Web sites for additional information about the various settings in these products that might cause this behavior:
