Parts of web pages not loading correctly

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Kathy T in MI, Jan 20, 2009.

  1. Using IE 7 on Windows XP system. All of a sudden some screens are not
    displaying properly. For example, http://www.msnbc.msn.com/ should have a
    one-inch high color banner at the top of the page along with links to
    various tv show links. It also contains their nbc logo, the peacock.
    However, on this machine the top banner has no color or graphic images --
    just a white background with the links to the other sites; and a search box.
    Other, but not all, web sites have the same plain header, like abcnews, etc.
    The remaining part of the page is close, but not exactly the same as the
    "correctly displayed images" seen on other PCs.

    While I am proficient with PCs and their settings, I am not educated to
    website construction, Java, Active X. I have checked every setting I can
    find but nothing I've tried works to get these headers to appear correctly.
    In fact, I'm not sure that the problem is related to Java, Active X, or
    what. I did install the latest Java version without any changes to the web
    screens. So, I don't have a clue as to how to fix this annoying problem to
    enjoy the correct web images.

    Hope someone can help me.

    Hi,
    You have a third-party program blocking ads and content which appears to be
    ads. Find the feature and tweak its settings or disable it.

    Here's some of the code from that page


    {AdBanner:{},AdBannerFront:{AdGroup:'NBCFC5',AdSizeCode:'1390',Width:'728',H
    eight:'90'},AdSponsor:{},AdOverThePage:{AdGroup:'NBCFC3',AdSizeCode:'1402',W
    idth:'1',Height:'1'}}

    No ad-blocker would be able to resist a target like that. ;-)

    Hope this helps,

  3. Don,
    Thank you! This sounds logically what the problem is. Now can you give me
    an example of a third-party program that may be the guilty party? Any way I
    can search for a specific term within a file that is causing the blockage?
    The computer in question is new and belongs to my neighbor. She has had
    some programs (mostly games, and most recently MS Office 2003) added to her
    PC by others, and also an anti-virus program called Kaspersky, of which I
    have no knowledge. But maybe it has properties set to filter out that type
    of page content? If you can tell me what to look for, I do follow
    instructions pretty well.

    Thanks again for any help you can suggest!
    Kathy

    Hi,
    I don't have access to Kaspersky AV or Kaspersky Internet Security to test,
    but at http://www.kaspersky.com/kaspersky_internet_security "Blocks unwanted
    web banners " is listed as a feature of KIS 2009. Look through KIS settings
    for this option.

    I have seen theis on several system - operating systems or browse
    version does not seem to manner. I am still trying to figure out wh
    this is occuring and how to fix it without resetting everything.

    However that being said if you reset all your browser settings t
    factory defaults (you have to do it twice for it to work) it resolve th
    issue. Unfortunity it also deletes your history, setttings, home page
    and deafult search providers so if that is OK then reset Interne
    Browers setting under Internet Options Advance Tab. Remember doing thi
    twice is the key. The first time you reset it does not always work th
    second time is the charm.

    If I figure out an easier way or why this is occuring I will retur
    with anoter post.
