    My computer was recently updated to XP. Since then I have not been able to see many of the pictures that posters embed in their messages. Some (few) I can see...most I can't. I can always open attached pictures. Can anybody help me here? Thanks...

    what web browser?

    I don't use IE, but Firefox has a feature to only load images from the originating website...so only pics hosted under the glocktalk domain would appear.

    it saves on load times (for dialup users) as well as blocks some banner ads since the images are not local.

    You might check IE's tools, options and advanced settings to see of something similar is setup there.

    Ditto on checking IE's setting in the security tab and check the firewall settings in XP as well.
