No pictures on downloads from Internet

Hi,
When I download a page from the internet which has pictures on it, the pictures do not appear to save. When I look at the file later there are no pictures. There must be something, probably quite silly stopping them. Allow pictures is ticked on internet options.

Any ideas

You didn't reveal what WEB BROWSER you were using, but Internet Explorer is known to do that if one has never emptied the Temporary Internet Files (TIF) cache. Many never do this in Disk Cleanup since the default settings of Disk Cleanup include a Compress Old Files that may take hours.

Best of luck,

Hi,
I am using AOL v9.0. I regularly dump all my temp internet files, so I do not think it will be that.

The AOL clue.

AOL may have their image compression enabled. You need to control this setting. I don't have AOL, but most just need this reminder to turn it off.
