What happened to the emotes? Most of them are all messed up and so is my avatar?!

The emotes either look different and/or when you put the mouse arrow up to them, they're showing something else.

My beloved avatar is gone and replaced with just a big green hummingbird that looks like the hummingbird badge.

The badges are messed up also, at least om the main page, when I clicked my avatar, it took me too my profile page and things look normal.

I can only guess here but it sounds like you have some malware on your computer that is causing these effects.

Looks good here, too. Marilyn have you tried just restarting your computer? And if that doesn't help, do you have security software installed? I've been using Microsoft's Security Essentials for some time now and that ended just about all of the problems I've encountered. And it's free. Smiling

Yup. It was my local computer guru who recommended it to me. I ditched the old security software I had and ever since have had fewer problems, and my computer runs faster, too. Apparently the old program eats computer resources. I did the same for a friend's older computer and it made a huge difference for her, too!

DH checked the computer and couldn't find anything. We've had MS Security Essentials for several years. DH reloaded ATP and everything returned to normal and no problems! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Thumbs up
