    I have just purchased a new PC with XP. When I visit some sites or download
    Emails, instead of a picture, I just get a square with a red cross in it. I
    presume this is a security setting. Could someone please tell me how I can
    get pictures instead of this square with a red cross in it.
    Your help would be appreciated.

    Have a look in tools/options and click security. IIRC there are settings
    affecting viewing attachments etc.

    Crash.

    tools
    options
    temp files > delete

    and adjust size of settings there too might stop you running out of space
