Unwanted pics on computer

by larry42161 / March 30, 2009 12:20 AM PDT

I've diiscovered that when I look at a picture someone has sent by e-mail, I can click the left or right arrow at the bottom of my browser and it will show crap I've seen while surfing. Like banner ads or pictures from other web sites.
Is there anyway to block this or remove the unwanted stuff without losing my pictures?
