BTW I run winXP home, 512 MB ddr ram, 128mb ddr graphics GEforce 4 MX440, ... all with latest drivers, HP pavilion 764C w/no upgrades.
By the way I've tried clearing my internet cache, cookies, the "show pictures" box is checked, ... ive even run the "aol computer fix" program...and tweaked around with all the settings, reduced security to none, just about everything i could think of.
About a month ago, when everything was running smoothly on my computer, images started not displaying correctly on IE. It happened right after I installed Battlefield: Vietnam and AOL 9.0. I've uninstalled both of them, and with no effect. For example, on the Cnet site, 99% of the pictures won't display (red X's) and also on sites like ebay, there is an "action canceled" message on some parts of the screen, although i can still use most of the other parts of the site. Even more strangely, everything works perfectly on AOL 8.0, but my computer had been running with 8.0 fine and IE was working fine too. Oh, and whenever i hover my pointer over the Cnet sections at the top (desktops, notebooks, handhelds, cameras, etc.), there are several notifications about script errors and I can't even click it afterwards, even though I instructed IE to not run the scripts anymore. AOL support didn't help at all, neither did BF:Vietnam support. Thanks if you can help.
