    I have about 6 tabs in WLM 8.5 that show up as blue question marks. I have
    uninstalled, reinstalled, tried repairing, etc. The original icons will not
    come back for some reason.

    Windows Vista 32-bit
    WLM 8.5.1302.1018

    Any help would be appreciated.

  2. Greetings,

    If I recall (been awhile since I saw this), if they're question marks then it's not been able
    to download the corresponding graphics. Generally this sounds like a software firewall
    blocking the outgoing connection to retrieve said images.

    Thank you Jonathan. Found out it was the Webroot Spy Sweeper Comman Ad Sites
    Shield that was blocking these from showing up.

    Ah, that'll do it.
