Why doesn't my banner.gif display?

Applies to: Grid System, Managed Servers, VPS

There are some ad-blocking programs and Internet firewalls that automatically stop your browser from loading any images containing "banner" in the filename. One of these programs is Norton Internet Security. It is also possible that your ISP provides an ad protection service that filters out graphics in the same manner. The easiest solution is to rename your image so that it does not contain the word “banner”.

Kaspersky Internet Security 7 also does this. I was serving my sites banners from a "banners/" folder on the www public root and the firewall blocked display of any images sourced from this folder! Moving the banner to a different folder, or renaming the folder (for ex. "advertisers/") solved the problem.
