Why is it when I try to go to some web sites they show up in the browser with
an x in them (blocked)?

I belive those x you see are actually pictures but they are not displayed. It
could be cause by several factors.

Is it the web page full of these "x"s or only some?

Actually, there is only one x. The web site I am trying to see is
www.briggsvacuity.com
This is a maker of toilets I am trying to buy.

You may need to install Macromedia's Flash Player to view that
web site. Go here for installation instructions:

Good luck

Hi,

You will have to have to have Macromedia Flash installed to view this
page.
http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash

Or view it this way.

1. Are you running a third-party pop-up blocker? See if disabling it makes
any difference.

2. Do you have SpywareBlaster installed and is Flash Killer checked in Tools
> Flash Killer? If so, disable it and reboot. Any difference?

3. If SP2 is installed, see this page regarding ActiveX & Flash:
http://snipurl.com/favh or
http://www.macromedia.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?event=view&id=KC.tn_19482&extid=tn_19482&dialogID=9492191&iterationID=1&sessionID=9630e742bfe17a6b1911&stateID=0+0+9494067&mode=simple

Also see:

Macromedia - Support : Flash Player Support Center:
http://www.macromedia.com/support/flashplayer/

4. If no joy, do you have this Registry key?...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX
Compatibility\{D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000}

With this key selected, do you see the following value in right-hand
pane?...

"Compatibility Flags"=dword:00000400

If so, right-click on the value and select Delete. Now check the page you
were trying to view. (Source:
http://www.macromedia.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=tn_19091)

NB: For Safety's Sake, before deleting the value, Export the key to a safe
location (e.g., Desktop). In case you make a mistake, simply Import the
backup to "undo" the change.

5. If still no joy, do you have this Registry key?...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX
Compatibility\{D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540001}

With this key selected, do you see the following value in right-hand
pane?...

"Compatibility Flags"=dword:00000400

If so, right-click on the value and select Delete. Now check the page you
were trying to view.

NB: For Safety's Sake, before deleting the value, Export the key to a safe
location (e.g., Desktop). In case you make a mistake, simply Import the
backup to "undo" the change.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Confession: I, too, have been having the same problem and for quite some
time now. #5 above was my fix. YMMV.

Yes, Spywareblaster will add a kill bit (Compatibility
Flags"=dword:00000400) into the registry key you mention below,
stopping flash from playing and producing the red X.
