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

Lost successfully, maintained successfully. Followed by a whole lot of setbacks and obstacles. Starting over with the knowledge gained before.

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!
