IF YOUR IMAGE WINDOW DISAPPEARS COMPLETELY

If your image window immediately disappears, your pop-up blockers are keeping it from displaying. Disable your pop-ups using these instructions.

If you prefer not to uninstall your pop-up blockers, you may add our site as a valid site for pop-ups. The instructions to do this will vary depending on the type of program or toolbar you are using, so you will need to check the documentation for that program or toolbar. Also, many of them will allow pop-ups if the CTRL key is used. When you are ready to view a document, hold the CTRL key down and then click the Image link.

IF YOU SEE A WHITE BOX AND NO IMAGE

Check the version number of your Internet Explorer. The new program is not compatible with Internet Explorer 8.0 or lower. If you are using a compatible version, note that there are two windows that come up when viewing. The first is for a security check and the second is the image. If you hang on that first window and never go to the second, your pop-up blockers are blocking the image. Disable them using these instructions. If the second window comes up but is blank, you may need to add our sites as Trusted sites. The instructions for this are in the next paragraph.

IF YOU ARE ABLE TO VIEW, BUT GET AN ERROR MESSAGE EVERY TIME THAT SAYS "FAILED TO LOAD POPUP BLOCKER ASSISTANT ACTIVEX CONTROL"

You must add our sites to your trusted sites. In Internet Explorer, click on Tools, Internet Options. Click the Security Tab, click on Trusted Sites, then click the button that says "Sites." Uncheck the box that says "Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone. Under the line that says "Add this website to the zone:", type the following: "*.mcohio.org" and click the "Add" button. Click the "Close" button and then the "OK" button. Try to view again.

General Tips

High-speed access is recommended STRONGLY for viewing images.

Adware and spyware can interfere with images. You should run some kind of adware blocking program regularly.
