Default Ticked off & need help!!!

Alright... I hate Internet Explorer 7. How do I get rid of it & go back to 6.0? If I can't do that, then how in the world do I get my pictures to show up instead of the red x placeholders? I went into internet options, advanced and the box is not checked that says "show image placeholders". What am I doing wrong? I hate this!! I cannot see hardly any graphics... definitely not the tickers. Everyone's ticker is showing up as an annoying red X.

Someone has to know something! Help before I throw this computer out the window!!!

If you go to add/remove programs, you should be able to revert back to ie 6 - however, you could also try mozilla's program - firefox. It is preferred by most web designers everywhere. Some (very few) sites aren't compatible...but it is also less prone to virus problems as well. I use it occasionally when I'm getting annoyed with IE

Fire Fox is VERY nice. I use it at home. I still use IE at work though, and have no probs with that either, I think it's the latest update too. But I prefer Fire Fox for sure

Here's another satisfied Firefox user! It is SO much better than any IE out there.

Another Firefox recommendation! I was reluctant to change because I'd gotten used to IE but once I got used to it I loved it!
