Which web browser (Firefox? Internet Explorer?) and Operating System (Windows XP? Mac? Windows 7?)?

Open up the Options Window (Tools/Settings on Windows) and check the settings on "Content", make sure that "Load Image" and "Enable JavaScript" are both enabled.

However that everything is slow suggests that something else is going on here.

Make sure that your anti-virus and anti-malware software are both up to date and do a full scan. If you don't have anti-malware then this is a good and free one to use:

If that doesn't find and fix the speed issue then come back and we can look into it in a bit more detail.
