Images not showing up.

I don't know if this is cuz I recently installed the Malwarebytes software, but ever since I did, some images are showing up as red x's. For example, I can't see the banner on this forum, and I can't see my Gaia avatar. It's not only extremely irriting, as I can't update the avatar, it's also baffling as I haven't got any idea on how to fix it, other than deleting Malwarebytes from my computer, which I don't want to be forced to do. But I can't see any other option. What else could be blocking the images? Can someone please help me on this?

It could maybe be due to a hosts issue or some type of Malware.

Try renaming your C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file to host.txt and then trying again.

If that does not work then follow the Pre-HijackThis post and post your logs and someone will help you out.

How do I get there? I'm sorry, but I don't understand how to do that. Sorry if that's a stupid question, but can you give me a step by step?

When you reply just click on ADDREPLY not the REPLY please and it will stop quoting.

Open My Computer then find the C: drive and open it and browse to that folder location. You will probably have to say yes to show the files in the folder as they will be hidden by default. If you can't get to that location then let me know and we may have to enable show hidden files and folders options.

Then when you get there just right click and rename or press the F2 key while the file is highlighted and you can then rename it.

Then after the rename launch your browser and see if you're still having the same issue.

Hi There.

Important!

All of the following instructions must be run on the affected computer. Logs from a different computer will not help me help you. So, if you need to download all of this and then copy it to cd or memory stick and take it to the other computer, please do so. Either way, it's important; The logs have to be made by the computer with the problem.

I need you to follow the instructions provided here http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=2936 first.

I also need for you to download this program http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTListIt.exe to your desktop.

* Close all applications and windows so that you have nothing open and are at your Desktop

* Double-click on the OTListIt.exe file to start OTListIt. OK any warning about running OTListIt.

* Place a checkmark in the "Scan All Users" checkbox (Leave the 'Use Whitelist' checked' and the 'File Age:' at 30 days)

* Click the Run Scan button

Note: Please be patient and let the scan run without using the computer

* When the scan is complete, a text file (OTListIt.Txt) will open in Notepad (if not, it can be found on your Desktop)

* In Notepad, click Edit > Select all then Edit > Copy

* Reply to this topic, click in the topic reply window, and press Ctrl+V to paste the log

* Submit your reply and close the Notepad window with OTList.txt

* Also OTListIt's Extras.txt log file will be minimised in the Taskbar (and located on your Desktop) - click on this and maximise the window

* In Notepad, click Edit > Select all then Edit > Copy

* Reply to this topic again, click in the topic reply window, and press Ctrl+V to paste the extras log

If the files (OTListIt.txt, Extras.txt) do not appear in your taskbar, just open the files in notepad; they will be on your desktop.

Please allow me time to analyze your post. If you don't see a reply from me after 24 hours, feel free to PM me.
