Hi, and welcome to the Forum!! There are a myriad of reasons why browsers will not display images, but its a little unusual for this to happen with both IE and Firefox at the same time.Skype does install addons on installation for both browsers, and this is certainly a possible cause.The uninstallation of Skype may be purely co-incidental, however. I'll ask you to investigate other possibilities first, starting with your router or modem as decribed below. I've a few questions to ask you as well, and if you can provide me with this information, it may help me in offering you a solution.Is this problem occuring with ALL images? Are you losing background images as well? Are some formats of image working and others arent?
