[Resolved] Internet Explorer runs only as administrator
One thing you could try to see if the problem was due to a browser add-on,is run the version of IE without add-ons. It's in the "accessories", "system tools" ...
Resetting the IE to default settings is worth a try but doing so will cause it to forget saved passwords for auto logins, "Reset" is in the "Adavanced" section of IE options ...If resetting IE doesn't cure the problem look for malware (see spywarehammer.com link above).
...I will now look for malware
I've tried Malwarebytes anti-malware but the pictures are still the same. Nothing. Now to try the 'crap-cleaner'
Method 2: Clear temporary Internet filesClearing your temporary Internet files creates more space on your hard disk. If your hard disk is close to being full, this could affect your ability to view pictures on a Web site.To clear temporary Internet files, follow these steps:Internet Explorer 8 1. Start Internet Explorer 8. 2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options. 3. On the General tab, click Delete under Browsing History. 4. In the Delete Browsing History dialog box, click to clear all of the check boxes except for the Temporary Internet Files check box, and then click Delete. 5. Click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box..
If it was like that, then wouldn't I also not be able to see the images as the administrator?
Umm...it's got about 1.4 Gb free of 29.2 Gb
i'm sure this is a cache problem. the cache stores the images, but become corrupted, showing the little red x's. i had the same problem a year ago. shut down all your programs and windows, and use CCleaner to clear the cache of yours browsers.
[I don't know how C4Ms computer manages to keep running with only 1.4Gb free on his hard drive]
In Local disk D there is 229 Gb free of 268 Gb----There's no way I can move some stuff over there?
Well, mine looks like this. I've got no idea what it tells me though 
You don't have another operating system installed there, e.g. XP or Linux, do you ?.

Finally, regardless of which tool you use, you must back up before playing with partitions. The cost of failure when repartitioning a hard disk is very high, and includes losing the entire contents. I'm not saying that it's likely - most tools have good reputations and for the most part work well. But in the off chance that there's an error, you most definitely want to have a backup to recover from.
I know that you are the expert
I've seen PCs where the D drive is larger. The C drive is used for programs & D for data.
