Windows 7: white box with red cross instead of photos

01 Oct 2014   #11

Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

It would be unusual to not have any security,
Every computer comes with bundled crapware that acts more like viruses than security unless it's a fresh install which isn't clear as of yet :/

Images save allot of descriptive text someone might recognize the symbols

as unusual as it may seem, i can assure you there was nothing on the machine when purchased apart from the OS. what you say is true when buying something like a Dell or similar. as for the image, all it shows is a small white box (in the middle of nothing) with a red cross in it. there is no text, nothing. if it were not for the fact that this friend told me he was able to open the photos when first transfered on to the computer, i would think he perhaps made the mistake of copying shortcuts instead of copying images but he says he was viewing them. as stated, however, even after imaging the machine back a couple of months to the day he received it, the photos still wont show. when i get chance, maybe tomorrow, i'll try to get a screen image to post here. atm, i have run out of ideas.
