Unable To View Images On Some Websites


I recently received a laptop with windows 7 for christmas. Please bear with me as i am pretty much computer illiterate! My problem is that when i go to certain websites i am unable to see images on those sites (including my own business websites well as by images i don't mean photos that have been uploaded but rather certain graphics etc. Which are part of the website. I have no problem with these websites on my desk top (windows xp) but only on the laptop with 7. I am sure its just something simple that i have turned on or off, but i really cannot figure it out!

Unable To View Thumbnails Using Detailed View

I am unable to view thumbnails in windows explorer while i am using detailed view. I only can see them when they are extra large. I can't see them in small, not in list, not in medium, just in extra large. I hate them extra large. I want to view them in detailed view. This is what i have done so far:under folder options/view i "unchecked" the "always show icons never thumbnails".

That did not work. I did go through tons of problems regarding thumbnails in the forums, but could not find a solution to my problem. I am using windows 7 professional 64 bit. I never had a problem with thumbnails in windows xp. Now i am struggling and i want to view my thumbnails again. I just don't know what else i can do. I must be missing something in the settings; but what?

Websites Opening On Their Own

I am getting a web site over the top of others - possible virus. The site is a video (tv /movies etc) site that brings itself up after ie has been open for a while - 15 or so minutes - and does not shut down by closing ie as it does not show up in the programs. I have only found it when asked to restore previous session. It generates over 10 instances of iexplore.exe in task manager (processes), but not in applications. The only way to stop it is to restart / shut down the computer, or take out each process although some generate themselves if left.

Cannot Access Certain Websites

Recently i haven't been able to access one website/forum (hobbykings.com). Everytime i try to access it, it just gives me the 'server not found' message, the one that you get when trying to access a browser without an internet connection.

I know for a fact that the website is working fine, as 3 other people have told me they had no problems getting onto the site. I also know there isn't anything wrong with my account as i emailed an admin. The last time i was able to access the site was wednesday morning, using a laptop with windows xp. Later that day, i bought a new laptop with windows 7, and haven't been able to go on the site ever since.

The funny thing is, i thought perhaps it was the firewall settings on my new windows 7. So i decided to try my old xp laptop, and i couldn't get on from the xp anymore either. So i highly doubt it has anything to do with my firewall as i didn't change the firewall settings on my xp. I tried using different browsers (ie and firefox), and neither is working. I've never had or seen this problem before so i'm really stumped.

Unable To Access Some Websites

I am unable to access 5 web sites that i have always been able to access. I get the message "internet explorer cannot display the webpage". I contacted the web master & he says it is a router problem. I have contacted my isp (cable) 4 different times now, & they insist it is not their problem. I contacted symantec today & they took remote control of my pc & un-installed norton, & did other changes, & i am still unable to access these sites. They told me to contact my isp. This just keeps going in circles. Any ideas?

Cannot Save Pdfs From Some Websites

I have windows 7 home premium, internet explore 8 and adobe reader 9. 3. I have found that when i get a pdf from a website and the url ends in .pdf i have no problems viewing or saving it. However, it the url doesn't end in pdf, adobe reader loads and properly displays the pdf but when i click the save button to save a copy, nothing happens. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Any ideas on how to correct it? I'm pretty sure that i am up to date on all versions. This is only a problem on my new computer with windows 7. I can still go to the sites on my vista laptop and save copies.

Saving Images From Internet

I have accessed a family history website and attempted to save a copy of a certificate. The website gives you the option to save the image online and/or save to your computer. In the past i have chosen to save to my computer and navigated to the relevant folder on my computer, given the file a name and hit the save button. Done! This was using windows xp. I could then view/print the file at any time. It was where i expected it to be in the folder i had created for that purpose.

Now i am told i do not have permission to save to my selected folder on c drive. "Would i like to save to my pictures?" Eventually i relented and said yes.

Result, i can only see the picture when i save another image to the folder. In the save window.

The folder says it is empty when i attempt to view the image through the explorer window. It appears i can only see folders not files in the libraries view. I attempted to create a new folder in the my pictures folder so i could organize the images but i can't see files in there either.

How can i fix the problem?

Websites Showing Wrong Location / Region Information

Original title: why does my computer think that i live in texas?I got this laptop from my daughter who does live in texas, but i live in florida. I am inundated with texas ads on facebook. When i go to a new news site, it gives me texas news as does my regular news sites if the computer gets shut off (i sometimes have to turn it off when it locks up). Something on explorer, i'm thinking, is communicating with these web sites about my location and i'd like to get it changed, but don't know where to start looking.

How To Change Hard Drive Icon Images?

How do you change hard drive icon images? I have an odd problem that just occurred in windows 7. I have several internal hard drives and 1 external hard drive. The external drive has always had its own unique icon and the internal hard drives all have the same icon image.

But somehow, the external drive now has an icon image of an internal drive, and my largest drive, a 1. 5tb hd, is showing the icon previously used by the external hard drive. I can't figure out why this happened, or how to change this back to the way it was. There is no performance issue, its just confusing since i've seen that external drive image so long i automatically go for the image when in my computer or explorer, and now that means i'm often selecting the wrong drive.

I click on properties>customize then select change folder image and select a hard drive icon that i want for each drive but it never changes the icon. And i am pointing to a proper *. Ico icon image file. Anyone have any ideas on this issue?

Wmp12 - Find Album Information - No Images Appear

Wmp12 "find album information" window malfunction i am having the strangest problem with wmp12 that i have been unable to find any kind of solution for online. Basically, if i right-click on an album and select "find album info", i am presented with the find album information window, but in place of every image that would appear is the small generic png logo. This is what i mean, i have tried sfc /scannow, resetting my wmp library, resetting the icon cache, and reinstalling wmp, but nothing has worked. Does anybody know what might be causing this?

Scanning Images Into Adobe Photoshop Cs2

Here's the issue i'm having. Photoshop itself works fine. My scanner (epson perfection v100) has the most recent drivers, compatible with windows 7. When i scan into photoshop, the image scans fine, and i close the scanning software as normal, but then i can't use photoshop. I can't click on any tools or menus, and the shortcut keys don't even work. The program is basically locked up. I have to shut it down through the task manager and hope it asks me to save the document before shutting down (which it usually does).

Then i have to reopen photoshop and open the saved document in order to do anything with it. I've tried running photoshop in windows xp sp3 compatibility mode but it makes no difference. I've even tried running the scanning software by itself without starting up photoshop, but that didn't work either. Does anyone have any advice (that doesn't involve me spending thousands of dollars that i don't have on a newer version of photoshop)? I'm an artist who likes colouring his drawings on the computer and it's a bit annoying having to work around it like this.

My media player no longer shows the videos that it used to. I can hear the sound but, no image. This is with all types of videos. (. Wmv, . Avi, . Mpg, . Mp4, ect. ) I have read the similar questions and tried the solutions to no avail. I've tried sfc /scannow and the results were clean. When i try to open a video from the videos folder, it opens the media player and plays the sound only. The screen shows the visualizations, not the video. I have scanned for malware and come up clean. Also, i have turned media player on and off multiple times. Nothing seems to work. I am at my wits end on this please help

Can't View Flash

Ok, i have a problem. I've just downloaded ie8, thinking it would help, but the problem occurred in both ie7 & ie8. Ok, so on some sites i visit, flash files won't load. . Swf file extensions mainly. Some sites (like virtual worlds) work. But flash files, and embedded flash files don't. Here's an example.

This link won't show, it shows as a box with an 'x' in it (like a missing picture): www.Gardenpartyworld.com

This link, however, works, it's the actual flash of a virtual world: www.Gardenpartyworld.com/game

I cannot figure out how to make normal flash files visible in ie8, any response is appreciated.

Not Able To View Online Videos

Problem viewing internet videos, i recently purchased a toshiba satellite laptop with windows 7 (including wmp) installed. My browser is internet explorer. When i try to watch video on news channels (or youtube, or any other medium), the video will often stop midway, or after several seconds, and never resume. One channel prompted me to download flash player, which i did, but it has made no difference. The only system protection i have installed is microsoft security essentials. I've read several of the other posts which seem related to this, but they don't seem to have the answer i need. I'd sure appreciate any advice to address this problem.

Cannot View Folders And Programs

Ive got issues with windows 7 that are progressively getting worse. It began with live messenger, affects mozilla and has now affected opening general folders. When i attempt to open a folder, it appears as an icon in the taksbar, and when i click to view it, it expands onto the screen, but keeps moving to the right of the screen and off the side almost instantly, meaning i cannot view it.

The folder/program are always active at the time, because when i have multiples open (eg watching movies in mozzila pages) i can see the thumbnails changing and moving etc. I managed to rid the mozilla problem by completely reinstalling it, but no luck with msn, and now i cant even open my computer or other folders. However when i run windows in safe mode i do not have this problem. When i right click the icon/s on the task bar i am only given options to view frequent folders (which does not work), pin to task bar, close window and open explorer(which also does not work). Ideas?

File Organization In List View

I just bought a new computer which has windows 7- i've used xp for the last 8 years on various computers, and there are many things which are extremely jarring. I've managed to figure out, tolerate, or get rid of most of the problematic areas, but i really can't figure this one out.

When i put folders into list view (my default since windows 95), all the files in folders are listing left-to-right (for example, amy.doc, amy2.doc, and boy.doc are all on the top of the file listing, and then the next line starts with boy2.doc, curmudgeon.doc, etc. ). Ever since windows 95, they've listed up-to-down (amy.doc, then amy2.doc directly below that). Sorry if that's confusing- i'm stuck on an old laptop with no imaging or ftp programs, so i can't provide any screen-shots of what i mean.

I can't stand this new way, i can't find anything because of it, and if there is a way to change it to the old way, i would very much love if someone could tell me how.

Unable To View Online Video

Embedded windows media player i am trying to view a movie embedded on a webpage. I know the server is working, as i can view the movie on another computer using the same network connection i am using now. The video continues to say "connecting to media", then finally says "ready" but doesn't play the movie. The error says that it encountered an error while attempting to play the file. If i go to web help i get this error message windows media player c00d11b1 my sound device is not having an issue, so i don't see why that would be the problem. Has anyone encountered this issue or have any idea of a way to fix it?

Missing Icon View Options

After a fresh install of windows 7 64bit (all updates installed) it seems my folders are missing the option to view the files icons by groups, eg modified, type etc in the 'organize' drop down list in windows exploreras shown here in http://www.Sevenforums.com/tutorials/3952-file-folder-arrangement-group-sort-stack.html option 2 – my folders are missing the sort by and group by options, these option don't appear at all in the drop down list. It was present in my last w7 install, but it's not present in this install.

If i right click in a vacant space in the folder a window appears and in that window is my missing view options (group by, sort by etc) that should be in the 'organize' drop down list appear (along with the normal options that appear) why they aren't where they should be has got me stumped.

My Documents Renamed View Libraries

This is a windows 7 question -ok - this is a little complicated. I have a windows 2003 server in a domain environment. This server houses my users public directories. So under my "users" directory - bob smith has a "bsmith" directory and jane doe has a "jdoe" directory and so on. My users local "my documents" folders are mapped to their respective directory on the server. So if they click on their my documents folder - they are actually looking at their folder on the server. All of my users have a folder with their name and everyone can see and modify each others files.

(This is by design) now that i am bringing some windows 7 machines online - those folders are being renamed to "my documents". They aren't actually renamed - its just a view. Only my windows 7 users folders are being renamed and only my windows 7 users see the renamed folders as "my documents" so now - if i have 10 windows 7 users - and i go to my "users" directory on the server. I would normally see a folder for each person.

But now i see 10 folders that say "my documents" and the non windows 7 users still have their names listed normally. So i now have no idea which of these 10 my document folders is bob smiths. This only looks this way on a windows 7 machines. If i look in the "users" directory from an xp machine - they look normal. So this tells me this is some sort of windows 7 "view" or library. I need to turn this view off. Any ideas?

Yesterday, i tried to install lepord transformation on my windows 7 laptop. Which i was able to install correctly but after restarting my computer i couldn't open my computer window. So, i uninstalled the lepord transformation software. But since then my taskbar, and computer view has changed to old style ( looks like windows 2000). Not like windows 7 anymore. Even when i am changing the themes its not getting changed to windows 7 view. I just found out after exploring all the help options the aero view is disabled but its not giving me any option to enable it. Please help me to get  my windows 7 view back.

Ie Auto Switching To Compatibility View

I am developing a web page but when clicking a certain link, it causes the following message to appear:- "a problem displaying [address] caused internet explorer to refresh the webpage using compatibility view". The page renders fine in every other browser i have tried (firefox, google chrome, safari, opera), it is only ie that causes this message. The page still renders fine, but i want to stop the message coming up.

I have identified the code that is causing this to happen
 
.


If i remove the overflow:scroll bit of the code it stops the problem, but this breaks my site since the part of the page no longer has scrollbars even when the size of the contents means they are needed - so users cannot see some of the page.could you please confirm if this is a known issue with ie and if there is a workaround?

Cannot View Chinese Characters With Ie8

After installing recommended updates yesterday, a window popped up and asked if i wanted to install ie 8. I had been using ie 7 so i thought i might switch. I did not do any custom settings while installing ie 8. My default homepage has always been set to google.com. Hk which displays contents in chinese. When i was using ie 7, everything was fine and i could see all the chinese characters; but after i switched to ie 8, i can no longer see them. I tried adding the chinese (hk) and chinese (prc) languages at tools> internet options> language> language preference, but it didn't work.

I also tried the various chinese options at encoding, but it didn't work either. I should also mention that i have auto-select turned on in encoding. Fyi i am using windows xp home edition version 2002 service pack 3.
