Windows 7: Pictures will not upload to Imageshack, Tinypic & Photobucket.

13 Jul 2013   #1

Pictures will not upload to Imageshack, Tinypic & Photobucket.

This is only a new thing, three days ago everything loaded and uploaded fine, but now (yesterday and today) all that happens (in ANY browser) is it looks like it's loading and then it's like I never clicked it, the file still shows up in the upload slot and nothing on the page has changed at all.

My picture is small and I tried uploading it in every format to see if that was the problem.

I followed these (Only to have the response tell me that it required "elevation" <Run as administrator> So I'm not sure what to do there.), does anyone know what else I could do? I cleared my personal data and made sure Javascript was updated and selected, made sure I had the latest version of flash and I've turned off all my anti-viruses and malware protection.

"elevation" means that you need to open Command Prompt in elevated mode (as admin). Go to All Programs > Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and you will see.

The reason why your pics do not upload could be your AV program blocking them. Make a test with the AV program off.

Welcome to Seven Forums kiwishaped. Your easiest fix may be a System Restore point from before this behavior began. Windows updates were on the 9th, and may play a role. If a SR does not help, you can always undo it.

ImageShack Hacked
For those of you using ImageShack to host pictures, it has been hacked. You will find your pictures replaced by images from the hacker. At this stage I have no idea if ImageShack have backups or not as the site appears to be down.
