Use you browser options to not automatically download images. The images will appear as thumbnails which will download when you click on them.
You're probably using IE: Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab > Scroll down to "Multimedia" > untick "Play animations in webpages", "Play sounds in webpages" & "show pictures"
If it's FF Tools > Options > untick "Load images automatically".

get linux ubuntu
And how would that help? L
Because whenever you go on a website with a flash object or video and things of that sort you have to click on a gray box with a play button to activate it
id like to help more but i dont run windows so i cant fiddle around with the settings until something works srry
That sounds like the answer I gave above: it's in the browser settings isn't it? (thanks for the reply) L

If they are animated gif's then the easy answer is to 'hit stop' , or escape, which will halt all page actions. Flash animations/adverts can be defeated in firefox with adblock plus. Just make sure to whitelist instructibles so you can send some revenue their way.

use firefox, and use a plugin like firefox ad kill, or any other of a number of the ad blocking programs. if you uninstall flash, that would solve most if not all of the animations. if the animation is a gif, you can use adblock in firefox to block the image.

Ufortunatly unless you unistall all flash players and directx, and other such grphics programs, you can't. even if you do, it will probably mess up your computer more.
