OK folks...lets see how good the knowledge base is here. After the reload I can only see partial animations..Example...The globe that sits between Global & Affairs atop the page does not rotate. I don't see any animated avatars, just still pic...but strangely enoug as I am making this post the smilies are all animated just fine. I know this is not an ISP issue as the other machines on this network all work great. I have checked and or updated DirectX, Flash player, all IE options, reloaded video drivers(even went back to the old NVidia drivers 22.80).. DXdiag says all is well. Dont' know what I missed although I'm sure its a driver or option issue..I have checked all I can check in XP, although I don't claim to be an XP expert and don't really want to go back to Win2k unless absolutely necessary. Any help with this one would be greatly appreciated.
