Sometimes graphics are not displayed when I'm online. Graphics *are* turned on and generally *do* display--that's why I'm confused. I'm not talking about unusual graphics, odd graphics formats, I'm talking about regular GIFs or JPGs. I use Internet Explorer version 6, if that helps. I would appreciate any/all tips! Thank you.

While I was using Spybot Search and Destroy, the computer became very slow. I rebooted using the hardware button, and since then whenever an application tries to use the internet (IE, Firefox, MSN Messenger etc) the application crashes, saying the application needs to close as an error occurs. Even the Windows Genuine Workaround app crashes! When not using the internet, everything works fine. How can I fix this?

Bloglines isn't showing my feeds anymore! I'm using the most updated version of Firefox, and haven't installed any new extensions, but my "feeds" tab no longer shows any feeds! This started happening last night. It shows the "Add, Edit, Clippings" and the "Extras" down below - but no actual feeds. I double checked in the "Edit" option to make sure my feeds were there. I disabled all my extensions. I updated Java. I even searched MeFi and the painfully slow Bloglines forum, but can't seem to figure out why my feeds are missing all of a sudden. I checked in Internet Explorer, and Bloglines is working - I even checked it on my wife's computer running Firefox, and my feed show up. What could possibly be wrong on my machine that their feed tree doesn't show up on my Firefox?
Forced for the summer to access the Internet through dial-up I wonder what the least expensive, least annoying, fastest option. I currently use NetZero which is free (three months which are almost up), fairly fast, but very annoying with video ads and hijacking my preferred browser i.e. making IE my preferred bowser every time I dial-up. I've used AOL in the past but find it very, very annoying. Any recommendations?

I manage my own DNS for domain names (I'm a tecchie, I know what I'm doing and jumping through someone else's hoops for DNService has always ended in tears). I've only got the one machine at a co-loc, and registrars get cranky if you give only one authoritative DNS server, or two that are in the same net segment. Where does a nerd get some reliable secondary DNS? The dozen places I've checked out so far insist that I move all my DNS to them, when all I want is for them to mirror my zones.

I posted something for sale on Craigslist. The first response I got was interested and asked normal questions. I responded, but the followup from the possible buyer was totally different tone and asking to pay in a form (AlertPay International Money Order) I'm not familiar with and can't find through a search. I want to sell this item, but I don't want to be scammed. Anyone know what AlertPay International Money Order is and whether it's on the level? [more inside]

Help connecting to the internet needed! I'm in a new house and the internet all of a sudden stopped working. My wireless can "see" several networks, have a strong signal and good speed, but I don't get assigned a network address. (the networks are unsecured.)
