Thanks for the reply. I have since discovered that the Red-X files that are
failing to load are .png files. There are lots of them on this webpage, all
the tabs along the top of page, Home to Help and How to, and all those down
the left hand side, Community to User Groups. The .gif and .jpg files load
correctly. There are more .png files that fail to load on other websites,
including home.live.com. In the top left corner it used to show a graphic
relating to weather. This is a .png file and it now just shows a Red-X.
I'm not sure however, why these files, that used to work OK have suddenly
I'm also still having the Stack Overflow at line: 0 fault on the following
website, amongst others.
