Cuties, I am trying to troubleshoot the problems users are having uploading pictures here on Cute using Internet Explorer.

I am able to use Internet Explorer 10 and upload pictures without issues. I am wondering if many of you that are having trouble are using AVG or Norton as your antivirus.
I know I am asking for a flood of PM's but I am trying to find a working solution -- so here goes:
Please send me a PM and tell me which of those (or neither if that is the case) you have ***ONLY IF*** you are having trouble using Internet Explorer version 10 to upload photos here. If you have a different antivirus program with internet anti-tracking added or other internet security software as an "Add on" please let me know that as well. If you do not know what antivirus software you have then please do not worry about this. I am only trying to find the reasons it works for some and not others.

I had troubles in the past, but after adding add cute to Compatibility View all is well.
I have windows 7
IE 11.0.9600.17280
Norton Antivirus

hope this helps :)

I've had to use Google Chrome to upload my photos, here and in emails.

We are chatting about Internet Explorer not the Operating System. It gets so confusing at times because they are all named similar things with numbers.
Internet Explorer is the big blue "e" with which you might be using to access the internet right now

Rescuer - you are a genius!!!! I have not been able to upload with IE. I did the compatibility thing. I have IE 11. I just finished uploading the Melancholy Babies pics thru my IE !!! I had been using Google, but followed your directions and it worked!! If I can do it, anybody can do it! Thankyou!!!

Fix most site photo upload problems with Compatibility View:

Open Internet Explorer and at the top right you will find tools (looks like a gear).

Tap or click the Tools button Tools, and then tap or click Compatibility View settings.
Under Add this website, enter the to the list, and then tap or click Add.

So, jrob was kind enough to test Internet Explorer 10 with Compatibility settings turned on. It worked!
Now, I just need to know which users still have issues **AFTER** they try using the compatibility settings in **Internet Explorer**.

Firefox and Chrome are still running without issues.

by cfidl 14 Jul 2014

Hi, I just tried using IExplorer 11 with Windows Essentials to no avail. You are amazing to even try to figure this out! I thought they fixed it!

Microsoft has (it seems) intentionally changed some things so that many website have to keep re-programming their websites to fix the issues. They do not seem to care either...
Would you consider trying with "Compatibility settings" turned on?
BTW what antivirus are you using? There may be more than one issue plaguing us here...

by mumzyfarm 14 Jul 2014

I use firefox and I have no problems it seems like firefox is more user friendly than internet explorer I also have Norton antivirus and it catches anything that comes along I hope.

Thank you -- We know Chrome and Firefox work very well here. We are just trying to fix the Internet Explorer issues. There are some users that do not want to change browsers.

Hi. I am not having problems with IE and uploading. I have Norton as the antivirus and goodness knows which version of IE I use. My laptop has windows 7 on it. Right the brain has now given up with information. But I always upload my picture before I write anything not that that is part of the problem for others but it saves having to re write if anything fails

To find the version of Internet Explorer -- click on tools (looks like a gear in the top right corner) and then click on "About Internet Explorer"

by rescuer Moderator 14 Jul 2014

There must be more of you having issues with uploading pictures.
You are welcome to send a PM if you do not want to comment here. I am just trying to narrow down the possible issues.
If you do not know how to send a PM there is a short tutorial in
