Internet images and email saves gone


OSNN Senior Addict
Suddenly I can't see a ;ot of images on web pages ( including my forum signature ), I get a blank box with a cross in the top left hand corner.
Also, when someone sends me a file in my email, I can't save it, the options are greyed out.
Can someone help me out on this one please
Thanks in advance

This is for a red x>

by neo1980

Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc and open HOSTS file with notepad and find image.com.com to remove any gamespot problem and MSN for any msn problem and so on, u gotta use the find option.

It was reported back that the person first backed up the file then deleted it with no ill effect & the red x problem was gone.

I did what you suggested and got this

"Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# rhino.acme.com # source server
# x.acme.com # x client host localhost"

I don't understand a lot of this being illiterate in this area, so would you please be able to help me out a bit more on this?

Thanks again
Well I can't see your sig either. Maybe the fault is on that side and not in your computer?

Also what email client do you use? Outlook Express?
