1. The article [Q283807] discusses a problem concerning the display of a red "X" or a placeholder - blue triangle and green circle, if Encoding has been set to anything but Western European (Windows). The article [Q274291] also explains this may happen when receiving a message from a proprietary e-mail system such as AOL. Be familiar with, "Q303487."

2. When viewing a Web page which attempts to load an ActiveX control, a red X may be displayed instead, the ActiveX control may not be loaded, or the Web page may display an error message, [Q262380]:

3. Remember that applications installed which provide options for "add blocking" or "popup stopping" may prevent viewing graphics. Set the appropriate settings. See this site for "Norton" products.

4. This Microsoft TechNet "appendix" provides detailed information for troubleshooting IEv6.

You have more than one problem

You've done 3 things you shouldn't have, causing me to be suspicious:
1) You posted the same thing twice in 2 minutes,
2) You posted your email address,
3) YOU POSTED IN ALL CAPS.
All 3 of these make me think you're a spammer and someone I'd never send an email to. If you don't know better than do these things, it makes me wonder if I should attempt to help you even though I'd like to.
