Win98 - local images don't load - remote images fine

    If I open an html file off my hard disk into IE6 on
    Windows 98, none of the images work - they all turn up as
    red X's.
    Images loaded from http: work perfectly.

    They worked fine in IE5.5, it was only when I upgraded to
    IE6 that the stopped working. This on both my computer and
    the computer of a friend of mine, both running Windows 98.

    Not only to images in IE not work, but anything that uses
    IE for its display, eg if I turn Active Desktop on the
    background becomes a red X, and the emoticons in Yahoo
    Messenger are red X's also.

    I have tried everything I can think of (clearing cache,
    checking and rechecking security settings, spybotsd and
    adaware, etc) but to no avail.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance
