    I'm having some problems -- on certain websites, such as AOL.com and my local
    news WHNT.com, the 'ads' and video and certain flash won't load. On CNN.com
    none of the videos will load, nor will any of the font or anything show up no
    the Video page, Now, on WHNT.com some of the flash will load, such as a
    voting poll, but our "videos of the day" and other things won't load. As on
    AOL.com, if I click on a story and it takes me to that page and, say, it's a
    story and picture of a music artist, the picture won't load. There is no
    little red "x" anywhere on the sites where things are missing -- it's just
    completely blank, like there is nothing there. Also, there are little gray
    banners on some sites that say "advertisement" but no ad - as if its blocked.
    I have checked everything I can think of - active X controls are enabled,
    firewall is off, cookies are allowed, pop ups are allowed, etc....I am out of
    ideas and even my website manager at work couldn't figure out why it would
    load some things and not others. help! this is driving me nuts!!

    thanks :)

  2. Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista SP1) whenever
    you post to an IE newsgroup, please. Thank you.

    Is that all/right??

  4. Could it be blocked? Some ad blockers actually change the HTML
    which could account for both symptoms, e.g. both blank and replacement
    of a site's images with its own generic ones.
