Folks: Accusing someone of spreading a virus is the on-line equivalent of saying he has the claps. I would be EXTREMELY careful doing either.

I have seen the same phenomenon as reported above. After viewing the thread, some pictures refused to show in the browser, then all pictures (banners, avatars, everything) except Packinair's refused to show.

What's more, when visiting other sites, no pictures showed either.

I mucked around with some settings, checked my firewall, and everything was fine.

I have no idea what caused it.

I doubt it was a virus. My virus definitions are continuously updated. While there's always a possibility for a new, unknown virus, it would be known and documentedthe morning after ...

I doubt it is a system update problem. My system is continuously updated via Microsoft's on-line Windows Update, and IE6 has the very latest patches.

Also, the phenomenon is somewhat documented at;en-us;283807

FYI, it IS possible to catch a virus by browsing. You are pretty safe it you disable all Java, ActiveX, mobile code, MIME etc content. But if you do so, most sites won't work ....
