I launched my website last night and immediately had to pull it back. Here is what is going on...

On some of the pictures, when the mouse rolls over the picture, XP flashes up icons: save/print/email/and!!'open my pictures.' This occurs when I am surfing my website and not signed in on the hosting service.

Now, this doesn't happen on all the photos. I have created the site in FP 2002. I have checked the photo properties on a photo that DOESN'T generate the icons and one that does. I can not see any difference in the way I have them placed. I am perplexed. 40% just enjoy having that icon pop up!

I pulled the site down, fearing anyone could access 'my pictures.' I don't know the security aspect of this and the logic, that it pops up on some and not others baffles me. That 'open my pictures' icon let me right into all the images I have up on the site. Is my host recognizing my PC as the author and permitting me access? Is that it? Or was I merely back in my own hard drive and I haven't a thing to worry about. Again, I was not logged on when this occurred.

Help folks!
