Hi all,
I hope someone can point me in the right direction here:-

I am at the moment using my daughters pc as mine went kaput!

I have noticed that if I try & buy anything on a certain website, here in the uk (ebuyer) the site wont let me login and i get the message "Cookies must be enabled in your browser"

BUT? they are? Or at least I think they are :-
ie, tools/internet options/advanced/security/custom settings/security settings - cookies are all set to 'enable"

What else could it be?
I have checked & I have no Adware/malware or Spyware issues; no trojans/virii etc?

thanks for any help.

regards,
imbai :confused:

Is there by any chance a program called AdSubtract listed in your Add/Remove Programs?

If so, 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 not, double check your Security settings...

Internet Explorer 5.x
1. Click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
2. Click the Security tab.
3. Click the Internet zone.
4. Select a security level of 'Medium' or lower

Internet Explorer 5.x - go to Tools, Internet Options, the Security Tab, click the Custom button and scroll about 1/3 of the way down to see the options for Cookies, and make sure both of the options have 'enabled' checked.

There is NO programe called Adsubtract on this pc.

I have already checked the security settings before posting my original message & they were set exactly as you described.

LOL... me too

I went looking for some info on Google
Are your date and time settings correct?

Also, in your Security (tab) settings...have you tried lowering it?
Or when you click on Custom Level, is 'allow per session cookies (not stored)' enabled?

In the Advanced tab, scroll down to bottom where Security is... are the SSL's checked?

I just checked.
Funilly enough for some reason the date was set one day ahead.
I reset it & tried ebuyer again......still no joy i'm afraid.

I have tried the security settings at all levels. :(

Yes, SSL2 & SSL3 are both checked.

Well, actually, all I have changed was the date back one day; everything else was already as described.
But I will reboot now & try again.
Back in 5 ;)

Also another thought..

In Security tab - click on "Trusted sites" - click on sites and try adding the ebuyer one you are trying to view, then click OK
