Cannot view pictures on web site.

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

I am having trouble viewing JPG and GIF files on a particular web site
(Expedia). I looked on the page for any description of possible issue with
pictures and nothing. It does not make any sense why just these file
extensions are not working on this site.

Any ideas?

    Check for an entry in the hosts file.

    In the hosts file? I am confused. What would the host file contain that
    would prevent pictures from appearing.

    Are you referring to something else? As in the IE restricted sites.

    A reference to the site, blocking them. I had exactly this
    problem recently.

    No, I'm referring to the hosts file.

    Someone had this problem yesterday with a web site. It was norton's - I presume cause the site used script of some type to make the pictures available. One had to add the site to norton's trusted zone or something.

    Lucky for me as I was trying to make sense of the large pointless scripts idiots include in web pages the site had the solution on their main page.
