Some Vista users are apparently having difficulty rendering certain types
of images. A supposed workaround is running IE as an administrator.
To examine this possibility give a specific example with more details.
E.g. see if you can identify an individual image file which is causing
a Red-X. Tip: it might show up listed in the Privacy Report (Alt-V,v)
or in the TIF Viewer (Alt-T,O,Alt-S,V). Otherwise use View Source
to see if you can identify a URL, extract it and see if trying to open
just that file also causes a Red-X. ProcMon is another tool which
you could use to help try to diagnose your symptom.
BTW I'm cross-posting this reply to a Vista specific newsgroup
because I don't use that OS.
