This has been quite a long time! All the browsers on my PC wouldn't show images from CNet and Download.com! I know that their image server is i.i.com.com, but it won't show up! Before; whenever that happens, I just refresh and it shows the images! Now it's been weeks! I tried it in MS IE, Opera, Firefox, and Avant; but it never shows up! I tried temporarily disabling my firewall(ZoneAlarm Pro), but images still won't show! They all used to show up! I thought that it was the image server's fault, but no! When I enter i.i.com.com on the address bar in Firefox, a notice says, "The connection was refused when attempting to contact i.i.com.com" I tried visiting CNet in my friend's house and the images showed up! I've got so many problems going on my PC that I've thought of reinstalling XP! Please help me!!! :(!
