I am not able to view motioned signatures or avitars

When I log on to and go into the fourms. The signatures just are froze. But when I view them at work, they move. The same wit my AIM it moves at work but does not even show the picture. I think I might be missing a plug in. But not for sure.

I have a gateway computer at home. Im at work right now and just found your website. If there is any thing you guys can do please help me out.

Tunes, A Few Things To Do...

First, visit the Macromedia links below and install newest versions of both Shockwave and Flash:

Next, follow the instructions in the link below to make sure you have Java and the newest script engine installed. (The post below is a little old so you'll now see a "Download" button next to "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 7" as the Java version but the basic procedures are the same.):

Hope this helps.

Gif association issue?

I checked out and noticed that the animated signatures are all Gifs, as are the animated avatars in AIM. Thus, my suggestion would be to click here to download a gif association fix. (This assumes you're running Windows XP.)

Hope this helps,

Tunes972, Another thing to check is to go into Internet Options>Advanced tab and under "Multimedia" make sure that "Play animations in web pages" is checkmarked, click Apply/OK.
