Finally!!! I found the solution to this annoying problem!!! I have yet to see a single broken image since I deleted these keys.
Do you ever notice that sometimes certain images don't load on certain web pages...mainly forums? Well, this problem started for me quite some time ago, and I never did find the solution, until now!
Back up this key before you try this. It worked for me, but that doesn't mean it'll work for you. Better safe than sorry.
Open \HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\PROTOCOLS\Name-Space Handler\
Delete the keys "http", "https", and "ftp"
Leave the 'mk' key
The mk key is created by Windows and the others are created by getright 4.5, or some other dnld manager. (Because I don't recall ever installing getright)
