-=PCTechTalk=- Re: SP2 updates could this be my problem?

I've compared my settings as best I can on my 2 computer's - 
one has sp2 and one doesn't, so the settings are set up a 
tad different. I don't think it is the web site, since I can 
see the graphics on my old computer, and some people on here 
with sp2 can see them.
At this point, with settings, I'm not sure what to try. 
Everything that looks like it should be checked, is checked. 
I'm wondering if it is still the firewall - somehow.
I haven't had the opportunity yet today to go over that web 
page that was sent in by Blue Belle- I noticed the 1st 
couple of things there, were things that I had already 
checked - like that the setting is checked to allow 
graphics. It is odd though, that it is only certain web 
pages that it seems to be happening on.

I think my problem with that one page where the sp2 bar 
wasn't visible, is a totally different problem, but I could 
be wrong. I'm wondering about my javascript - and activeX. I 
kept getting the notice that I needed to download my 
activeX. I downloaded it about 5 times before it seemed to 
'take' - then, I had to get rid of that quik whatever 
program, and put IE into my allowed programs in OUTPOST.

I'm going to try to disable OUTPOST again and see if it 
shows up then - try to narrow this down more!
thanks!! I do run things to disable pop ups, and who knows 
what!! So I'll disable them one by one to see if it makes a 
difference!

Chris,

Check all of your security settings in your computer... 
particularly your
Operating system, your firewall/antivirus/adware/malware 
software and
Internet Explorer (and Outlook Express since they share many 
settings) or
whatever browser/email client you use.

Anything that disables or limits anything such as JAVA, 
HTML, DirectX,
Flash, pop-up ads, banner ads, displaying pictures etc etc 
could have an
impact on what you are able to see/display/download on any 
given website.
