Having had no mail problems previously, following the installation of 16
Windows Updates today I find that suddenly none of my Windows Mail messages
contain any images (not even a red X). I've checked the security settings,
but they haven't changed.
The only Windows security product I'm using is Defender's Firewall, whle
virus and spyware checking is from AVG (Free). I'm running on Vista Home
Premium SP2 (32-bit).
Am I alone?

Your AVG antivirus was probably installed with its default install option.
If so, uninstall it, then reinstall, but select 'custom' install, which then
allows you to unselect installing its troublesome email scanning module.

i.e., Linkscanner, Search-Shield, Active Surf-Shield, Security toolbar,
and/or any of the email scanning components.

Thanks - that DOES seem to have been the cause (and also the cause of
a 15-minute boot-up delay!). I've installed the new Microsoft Security
Essentials product instead.

Glad to hear it. I also use MSE on all my computers.
No surprise that it is highly compatible with Microsoft programs.
