  • 2. The "dreaded red x"
    HELP! A friend of mine is trying to forward an email with graphics. She can view the graphics. But, when I receive them they are blank boxes with the dreaded red x in the left hand corner! Here is what I told her to do: Open Control Panel and click the Internet Options icon. Select the Advanced tab and scroll down to the Multimedia section. Uncheck the box in front of the Show image download placeholders option. That did not work! Any suggestions? Thanks in advance, Tuf

  • 4. Unable to open new IE/Windows Explorer windows
    Hi. Recently, I've had a problem that is highly annoying at best, highly problematic at worst. Apparently, Internet Explorer has decided that it now has a threshold on the number of windows. Whenever I open a certain number of windows (it starts fairly large, and then gets lower and lower; I'm at a two-window limit right now), the last window I open will have weird settings: the back, forward, etc. icons will no longer have text beneath them, and there will be no menu bar. I will be unable to right-click anything in this window, or open a new IE window from any source. A couple of days after that began, I noticed it was affecting Windows Explorer, too. The windows limit applies to both (together, not separate). If I reach the limit, the last Explorer window I open will not have a menu bar, but there will be white bar there, in the center of which is the Microsoft symbol. Again, I will be unable to right-click anything in this window, or open a new window from any source. If I end-task Explorer.exe and re-run it, the problem seems to go away temporarily -- perhaps it resets the limit, I don't know, but it generally takes me six hours or so to reach the limit again. I reinstalled IE6 with Service Pack 1. That seemed to help for a day or two, but the problem came back. I'm running Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 1, on a 2.4Ghz Pentium4, with 512MB of RAM. Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance. Mike

Favorites sub-folder keeps disappearing

Hi All,

Some time ago, I created a sub-folder in my favorites list called
"shopping".  Beginning about 6 months ago, every once in a while (often),
that particular folder disappears.  EVERY other folder and link remains
intact.  I've exported the list so that I can import it and restore the
"shopping" folder, but there's a major flaw with that.  Unless I export the
list every time that I make an addition or deletion anywhere in the list
(sub-folders or direct links), the import of the backup will only restore
what was in place at the time of the export.  I'm sure I could export only
the "shopping" folder, but again, I'd have to do with each edit.

Why is this folder disappearing and how do I make it STOP?!

PS
Checked Advanced tab in Internet Options and "Enable personalized Favorites
menu" is NOT checked.

Thanks in advance.  This has be driving out of my mind!

Nancy

Hi Nancy,
I can't think of a reason why this should be happening. 'Shopping' may be
recognised by some anit-spy programs on your puter and they may be removing
the folder.
Have you tried renaming the folder to something else that does not include
the word shopping?

I don't know. Maybe your husband has been deleting it behind your back to
curb your spending!!

No, I haven't tried that, but I will.  Thanks for the pointer.

4.Outlook favorite folders keep disappearing!

Hi,

As per subject line - my Outlook Favorite folders keep disappearing!

I keep replacing them with the shortcuts back to the original folders, 
but every now and again (read: perhaps a few times per day) they 
disappear and I'm just left with the Unread Mail folder....

Any ideas?

5.Favorites mail folders keep disappearing

I have an intermittent problem with the Favorites folder 
in Mail.  I'll add several folders that I want to keep an 
eye on.  Frequently, of late, when I reboot or quit OL 
and then restart most of the folders I've added are 
gone.  Once everything disappeared, but most often it 
seems that the last 2 or 3 that I've added are still 
there but everything else has disappeared.

Anyone know what gives here?

Ken
