Hi,

Ever since I upgraded to ie 11, which by the way only crashes and its super slow. Now my Outlook 2007 does not display any images. Even tho the settings are correct and does NOT block images.

What to do ?

This example is for Outlook 2003 which may be close too your version:
1.On the Tools menu, click Options.
2.Click the Security tab.
3.Under Download Pictures, click Change Automatic Download Settings.
4.Clear the Don't download pictures or other content automatically in HTML e-mail check box.

"Unblock picture downloads for all messages
1.On the Tools menu, click Trust Center, and then click Automatic Download.
2.Clear the Don't download pictures automatically in HTML e-mail messages or RSS items check box."

You could then 'uninstall' Intenet Exploder 11...

Go into the Control Panel > Programs and Features > click "View installed updates"

then scroll down through the list until you find the Internet Exploder 11 Microsoft virus update and just uninstall it.

If you did not install IE11 that long ago, you could always perform a System Resore to the time before you installed IE11.

Already uninstalled it, don't see how that would help. I was back on ie 10, same thing. I had ie 10 for a very long time.

Not talking about the type of System Restore like a complete system restore...

Go into the Control Panel > System > "System Protection" from the menu on the left.

Then click the "System Resotre" button, and 'only' choose a time to just before the IE11 installation from when you were using IE10.

You should be able to choose a time to a time just a few weeks ago.

Did you try this option?

In Internet Options ------> Advance tab -------> "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" is unchecked.  Restart Internet Explorer.

Clear your temp and temporary Internet files folders. Look for them under \Documents and settings/yourusername or \Users\yourusername \AppData\Local (or Roaming if you use roaming profiles) depending on your OS.
After clearing the folders you should be able to see images again.

Not the one under windows. Do this:
To locate the TIF (temporary internet files), open Windows Explorer and type shell:cache in the address bar, and then press Enter. Then select all and delete. Close outlook and re-open it.
