    I'm having that problem of getting the red X instead of pictures and graphics loading in websites. I thought I saw this problem posted before and searched but could not find the thread. Does anybody know how to fix this problem? I'm on XP Pro and hooked up to a router. My XP firewall is off and I have no other software firewall running. Thanks.

    Mine does that too. Glitch in IE I guess unless anyone else can shed any light?

    Yeah, that's the one. Thanks Speedy_B. I wonder if anyone has had any luck with the reg edit? Although the timeout thing is a good thought, the pages load really fast as I have cable Internet, so it doesn't seem to be a timeout issue. Pages load in about one second or less but no graphics, at least on some pages. Weird??

    I have the problem with random red x's... I refresh and they load fine. I have broadband and I agree that it doesn't seem to be a timeout issue. Nevertheless, I tried the registry change and hopefully it will make a difference.

    Checking now........ yes there are! 4 critical updates... here they are:

    818529: June 2003, Cumulative Patch for Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1

    Flaw In Windows Media Player May Allow Media Library Access (819639)

    811493: Security Update (Windows XP)

    Q815021 XP: Security Update


    It doesn't seem that any of these would have to do with this issue though.

    Cumulative patch may.

    I'm not really sure, I do have to use IE now and then when I'm not at my own machine etc, and I get this exact same problem, refresh and the images load... It does seem to be to be a general Ie problem rather than something specific to a certain config or setup.

    I installed the patches and rebooted. I'll give some time to mess around in IE and then I'll report back whether I notice any changes or not.

    Well, I'm still experiencing the problem. It makes no sense to me because of how random the occurrence is, and how a simple refresh fixes it. I can be looking at a single page just fine one minute, and then come back to it a minute later and have graphics that don't display. It's not a big problem, but it's really annoying. Makes me want to switch to Opera or Mozilla.

    This can be caused if you have modified the MaxConnectionPerServer and Per1_0Server registry entries. Make sure that they are no greater than 10 (0x0000000a). They are located here:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Internet Settings\

    The defaults are MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server=dword:0x00000004
    MaxConnectionsPerServer=dword:0x00000002
