    Okay, I know absolutely nothing about computers... so this is kinda like a last chance thing before my dad shoots me. We have Windows XP and when I loaded my picture program for my digital camera it loaded quicktime onto our computer. Which disabled the cookie for one website that my father uses. I've tried everything in internet options to enable the cookies, I've lowered the privacy settings to allow all cookies, I've set everything to allow cookies, yet this site won't work... but there are other cookies on our computer, it's just this one website that will not let him log on. When the message pops up it says that either javascript and/or the cookies have been disabled... I know it is not the java because I reinstalled it and that's working just fine. I've asked numerous people and they keep telling me once the cookies are gone they're gone forever. But they can't be gone since every other site we visit comes up with cookies. I really don't know what to do, I mean it's only one site but apparently it means a lot, lol. Please help me! :(

    I don't think it's cookies but you could put that site in his trusted zone and see if that helps. I believe you can also set it to always allow cookies for that particular site too.

    Hi

    Firstly, you say you know nothing of computers, well you know enough to get online and post on here, so well done!

    Ok, just sounds like cookies have been disabled, so we need to turn them back on.

    So open up Internet Exporer. Click Tools > Internet Options > Privacy Tab > Advanced Button. Then put a tick in Override Cookie Handling, then put ticks in Accept Cookies. Click Apply then ok.

    All should be back to normal.

    Hope this helps.

    I've done that... Overriding the cookie handling didn't work...
