Outlook not displaying images


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 ?

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.

did you go back into IE8 and try to reset the IE8 settings?

IE Reset location
AleksAuthor Commented:
I have IE 11 not 8
Rob HutchinsonTech Lead, Desktop SupportCommented:
I thought you said that you tried uninstalling IE11?
AleksAuthor Commented:
I only goes back to 10, not 8. eitherway doesnt work.
Rob HutchinsonTech Lead, Desktop SupportCommented:
If you did not install IE11 that long ago, you could always perform a System Resore to the time before you installed IE11.
AleksAuthor Commented:
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.
Rob HutchinsonTech Lead, Desktop SupportCommented:
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.

Unfortunately only shows dates for this month, nothing before then
Did you try this option?

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

Maybe try performing a repair install of Microsoft Office 2007?

Ill try to repair Outlook later today, so far no settings work, thanks !
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.
AleksAuthor Commented:
Did this .. no luck, the folder was under windows/ .. etc ..
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.
AleksAuthor Commented:
The folder is empty
