Re: Windows Vista Help

Try Firefox and see if it has the same problem.
What do you mean by my folder popping up when you boot into Vista - can you do a screen grab

One possible difference is that my picture is hosted on my own web site but yours is uploaded

Yes maybe or either that its just a simple click in internet explorer 8 thats need fixed,just downloaded firefox and its displaying the pictures no problem and when i was using ie8 in xp pro it worked fine so i think its a setting that needs adjusted its just finding it,never mind i dont want to customise too much as i will be getting windows 7 after the christmas period,Thanks very much for your help and have a nice christmas Smiley
