Gif's not loading?

Seems like half the time I load a page, one or all of the gif's are not loaded correctly. I am running IE 6.0.28, and I do not have any ad blockers or anything similar. I checked the FAQ and the first few pages of threads, but I didn't come up with anything.

Any ideas?

What are some of the images that don't load correctly?

What happens if you try to go to the image directly rather than view it inline? What I mean is, if http://ads.kleinman.com/images/firstnew.gif doesn't load on the page, what happens when you leave the page and go to http://ads.kleinman.com/images/firstnew.gif directly?

I've never tried that. As for the first question, it's random. Sometimes it will be the "email" gif, sometimes it will be other gif's. Next time it happens I will try to go to the gif url and let you know.

Ok, I just went to the video game forum, and the page looked like this:



When I went to the URL of that GIF, it loaded fine the first time.

I've had the same problem for years. I assume it's yet another flaw in IE's craptacular caching system. If you right click on it, and choose Show Picture, do they all appear?

Check this out:

Edit -- coincidentally, my sysadmin upgraded my computer to use the latest version of IE at work this morning. I was using 6.x at home without any problems, but at work, I'm experiencing this GIF issue too.
