I bought new computer running Vista and running Internet Explorer v7.0.6000.16473.  

PROBLEM: Some pictures show up with picture place holder and red "X" in corner but no image. I am logged in as Administrator.

For example, if I click on IE > Help > About, it displays a window called "About Internet Explorer" with a place holder at the top 1/2 of window with "X" in it....no image.  The rest of the window is visible.

Another example is when I go to the https://www.experts-exchange.com, then click on the "ASK" button, a new page opens up,  however, the "Step 1   What is your Question?" text does not show up, only the blue background.  Also, the "SUBMIT" button in Step 2 is totally missing. If I mouse over it, then I can click on it.

I have already set all the set the "Internet Options" to a custom level where I enabled everything. Turned off AV, rebooted, same problem.

If I run IE as "Run as Administrator" everything works fine.

QUESTIONS:
How do I fix this so I don't need to "Run as Administrator"?
