    The problem can be caused by AdSubract from interMute, Inc. It blocks ads and filters cookies.

    To remove it:
    On the taskbar, click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
    In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.
    In the Add/Remove Programs dialog box, click AdSubtract, and then click Add/Remove. Follow the instructions to completely remove AdSubtract from your computer.

    To disable AdSubtract but not remove it, right-click the AdSubtract icon in the notification area, and then click Exit.

    If that not the problem check your Cookies Settings, follow these steps:
    In Internet Explorer, click Internet Options on the Tools menu, and then click the Security tab.
    Click the Web content zone you want, and then click Custom Level.
    Under Cookies, click the options you want, click OK, and then click OK.
