    Dear Sir,

    I am reading text from a website. There appeared a number of of square boxes
    with read cross X inside it ?

    May I know what this means ? Is there any content that was held back and how
    to change the setting to release those content ?

    Also for you info I am using Norton Internet Security 2006 with full
    security settings.

    Kind Regards

  2. 1. In IE, go to the Tools menu and select Internet Options.
    Click on the Advanced tab.
    Scroll down to the Multimedia section and make sure the box "Show Pictures" is
    ticked.

    2. Clear the IE cache from IE> Tools> Internet Options> General> Delete files and
    Delete offline content.

    3. For further information see this link:

  3. It means pictures that didn't load.
    From http://www.fjsmjs.com/IE/redx.htm

    Most of the contents of this page are from Don Varnau and Mike Burgess

    There are many possible causes and solutions.
    Try the quick, easy fix first. Clear the IE cache from IE> Tools> Internet
    Options> General> Delete files and Delete offline content. Reset the TIF
    folder size to about 50 MB (Settings button) and clear it occasionally.

    Also, go to Start | Run and type
    regsvr32 /i mshtml
    and press OK.

    Additional information from Mike Burgess:

    Are you using a Firewall or "filtering software"?

    Several of these are known to cause problems:
    1) Zone Alarm Pro [Private Header Info - enabled?]
    Reset "Ad Blocking" and "Cookie Control" to "medium"
    "Mobile Code Control" = Off

    2) Symantec (ISS\NIS)[Enable Browser Privacy - enabled]
    Active Content - "Allow All Script To Execute"
    Problem: some sites cannot detect the 128 bit encryption
    Solution: Completely remove and reinstall NIS.

    3) Any "ad blocking" software that blocks "http_referrer"
    or contains entries that are blocking access to the desired site.

    4) HOSTS file that contains entries that are blocking access to the desired
    site.

    5) Cookie blocking software that are blocking "required" Cookies.

    6) Pop-up blockers that are stripping header\url info.

    7) WebWasher Standard Filter/URL Filter

    8) Make sure the following registry entry is not corrupt:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
    Settings]
    "User Agent"="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Win32)"

    Note: "Win32" = Windows 98\ME
    Other versions = (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0;)

    To check your "User Agent":
    Paste the below into the Address Bar and view the output:

    javascript:navigator.userAgent

    [Example WinME output]
    Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90)
