Unhappy Please Help Me :(

Hi All,

I am sorry I have to come on this forum to seek help. I am dying to try some photos from the challenging galleries, everytime i go there to pick up a photo, my computer packed up on me, I cannot see any images even from google or the web, I have to turn off my computer and put it back on again which is time consuming for me because I do a lot of accounting on my computer. Whilst having a break I like to pick up a photo and practice with, I see all those lovely photos from the challenge galleries and would love to have a go but i can't pick any picture.

Please please help me to retrieve some photos and have a go at them.

Many thanks in advance

Re: Please Help Me :(

hi,
there could be several reson why..... not enough details to pin it down... but few simple things to try first....

1. i assume you have done your virus scans and anti spyware scan... if nothing to eliminate those possiblities...

2. go to your browser itolls>nternet options>advanced and under the multimedia section make sure " show pictures" is checkmarked....

3. purge your internet cache and purge your cookies and defrag....... defrag cures a lot of ill's ...


those are the first things i would try if that doesn't do it.... then look at other aspects of your system..

Helen,
Unfortunately, your post is in the wrong forum to receive a lot of support.

The cause depends on your operating system (Win vs Mac) and your browser.
Usually, it is associated with installing other graphics software.
Your best solution is to Google a phrase like "cannot view thumbnails Vista". Then review the results for a common thread to your setup.

Hi Jerryb,

Please excuse my delay in replying. I have degragmented my pc as suggested and it did work at some point, I managed to download some of the photos but again soon after I still can't see nor download any photo. I have no problems picking up photos from other forums on this site, but the minute I go to the galleries forums my it just destroy my pc, it's almost like a virus, I had problem over the weekend with it.

I do not know how I am going to post back some of the photos i've worked with, it's so annoying, why this is happening, i've even uninstal my virus scan, still having major problems.

anyway many thanks for your interest and suggestion, much appricated.

I shall keep away from the galleries forum, until I get further help.

best regards


helen

hi,
from your last 2 post.. it appears it primarly just with that one webpage.... obviously something peculier about it that your browser/system doesn't like.... not sure what route to go with it.. either install another browser like opera (it free) or try... turn off the your malware scanners and firewall .... see if that helps
