I've tried almost everything:
-loosened internet security settings
-Installed xpSP2 and configured the firewall
-Ran AdAware (about a month ago...)
I have a broadband router. I suppose that the router is not blocking these sites images. If it is possible, the how is this done? I cannot imagine how a firewall or router can block images from certain sites automatically.
Prior to that, I believe that there was no firewall. But since my laptop is connected to a network, there must be a firewall on other part of the network.
Anyway, my machine is the only one affected by this problem.
Just for the records, my laptop is the only one with a static IP in the network.
Open the file HOSTS which has No Extension with notepad.
There should only be one line saying:
If there is anything else delete it. Some malicious code or spyware can change this file so you can't access certain sites.
See if this helps
