when I download a page from the net I have a variable number of red crosses within boxes. If I right click on these then click on"show photograph" the photo is then displayed.
How do I correct this ?

If my first suggestion doesnot help
try deleting temp internet files , history and cookies and then try going to the website

Does it happen in all websites or specific ones ?

Thanks to sunray and others who tried to help
Actually compfixer101 was nearest the mark and should be awarded the points.
I use satellite transmission to download to XP from the net. A technician from my ISP advised me to open internet options and go to LAN settings. If proxy settings was enabled (which it was) then I should disable it.
This has apparently cured the problem.
