windows explorer not allowing certain things

hi,

i originally thought i had a MS outlook issue, when certain links in my email would not show their images which i was directed to...
 images were not view-able. this was true even after after trouble shooting, re-installing and following up countless leads, no help.
but i realize now that it isA  MS IE 9 which is my issue.    google chrome show the images.  i set MS ie back to defaults,    no help.... what can i do.....

has anyone heard of this type of problem elsewhere?

I understand that you are talking about images in the sites to which internet links in email messages send you--not images in the email itself.
This is an old and not uncommon issue.
Here are some things to try  (references to IE 10 will usually apply to IE 9).  I regret there are so many possibilities.

j,

by far the most on point answers I have yet to get.
it still did not solve my issue, but perhaps  we are on to something...

I followed all steps of each link.  I can not right click on the " red X place holder" and get a " "properties" from it....

lets go step by step.

MS outlook receives an email.....opening it, shows text, and place holders. the place holders say " the linked image can not be displayed. the file may have been moved, or deleted   etc.....   double clicking it brings me to a web site.  NOT the image I ......

    but  if I forward this email to another computer which has  MS outlook , I see the images in the body of the email...
double clicking it brings me to a web site.  NOT the image I ......

so double clicking it  brings me to identical places in both computers.

does this give my issue more clarity.?
as I said at the onset... it was MS outlook which first showed me an issue.


I also see another symptom...... slightly different.
I got an email from my old college.  it does show a place holder...as did my other ones I wrote about.   however this place holder reveals itself as a "jpg" . it still will not display.


let me know if you have more thoughts.

Regrets.  I am now quite confused.
"MS outlook receives an email.....opening it, shows text, and place holders..."  So it seems the images you cannot see are in the MS outlook email.    My earlier assumptions, as explained, were that the images were in links offered by the email.

"NOT the image I ......"   ???

Consider the following from Outlook 2010 Help
"1.In an Office program, click the File tab.
2.Click Options.
3.Click Trust Center, and then click Trust Center Settings.

The Trust Center
4.The following list of options appears (some options may vary):
Trusted Publishers    Build a list of publishers of code projects you trust.
Trusted Locations    Designate folders on your computer in which to place files you trust from reliable sources. Files in a trusted location folder do not go through File Validation.
Trusted Documents    Manage how Office programs interact with active content.
Add-ins    Select if add-ins require digital signatures, or if add-ins are disabled.
ActiveX Settings    Manage security prompts for ActiveX controls in Office programs.
Macro Settings    Enable or disable macros in Office programs.
Message Bar    Show or hide the Message Bar.
File Block Settings    Determine if previous versions of Office program files will open.
Privacy Options    Make selections that determine your level of privacy with Office programs.
5.Click the area that you want and make selections you need."

Why not try a repair of Outlook first?
Control Panel|Programs and Features|scroll to Microsoft Office (or Outlook) on the next window|right click on it|choose Change from the Menubar.  Follow instructions to Repair only Outlook.
Or you could uninstall/reinstall Outlook.

And if that does not work, a Repair Install might be a less traumatic next step.  http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/3413-repair-install.html
It should not affect your installed programs and personal data, but a backup first never hurts.
