Where are the user defined settings controlling all browsers

By Jiva77 ·
Using Windows XP sp3 a user on the pc cannot view web pages properly. Some images show up fine, links show up but the script isn't showing everything on the webpage. There are no red x's and I updated Java and ActiveX. I went to my. msn. com to give you an example, there should be a blue image that shows up all along the top in the background, its gone for me, the bing search bar has a button but no image, all the tables show only a black border not blue shaded table borders.

It appears that something is blocking the true web script to show html, asp, php whatever, but is allowing some text and images to show fine. I created a new user account on same pc and went to same webpage and it shows fine, no issue in both browsers ie or ff.

It is not an IE issue or a Firefox issue because it didn't work on either for my original user account but worked fine in both browsers on the new test user account. Any ideas what is the cause?

Browser Defaults

For IE: Tools - Internet options - there are several places on different tabs and settings to click "Restore Defaults" or "Reset to Defaults"

For Firefox, start it in "Safe Mode" (from the Start menu)

Safe Mode is a special Firefox execution mode that can be used to troubleshoot issues in Firefox. In Safe Mode, you can reset some settings or disable add-ons that might be the source of the issue. By comparing Firefox behavior in normal mode to its behavior in Safe Mode with various items disabled, you may be able to diagnose issues.
