Picture Not displaying in Outlook 2010

In outlook 2010 pictures are not being displayed and are being replaced by a blank placeholder. I have unchecked the check box to allow downloading of pictures to all emails, unchecked the option to reduce file size by removing formatting and I have checked to see if Word 2010 was set to display place holders instead of pictures which it was not.

Please review the Microsoft Support article below for this issue (multiple versions of Outlook I think).  Try running the FixIT and then review the manual steps that follow if necessary.

I had already run the fix it. I did just verify the path and it did have a in correct path, however outlook still shows a blank place holder. There are no red x place holders.

Try the following:

1. Try a Full Repair of Office. Control Panel, Programs and Features, click on Office, and then Repair. Allow to complete, close out, restart and test.

2. If no, set up a new, test Windows User Account (profile). Test Outlook in the new account. Does this change Outlook behaviour?  If so, you could have a damaged Windows account.

3. If not, try uninstalling Office completely, then restart and then installing again.

Please let us know.
