    GlynnRoy,
    You probably have already done this. If not, click on tools, internet options, privacy, sites and then enter the URL of the site from where you want the cookies to be saved, and click 'allow'.

    If you are using ccleaner, and have IE 7 beta installed, the ccleaner removes all cookies inspite of your using the 'options' tab to save cookies that you want saved. If this is the case, then leave 'internet explorer' unchecked in the right hand panel of 'cleaner', i.e. do not clean anything under the IE tab of ccleaner.

    GlennRoy,
    Do you have IE 7 beta3? I installed it 2-3 days ago. Cookies are saved, but this version of IE does not seem to communicate with the saved cookies. So, I have to enter my user ID and password on all sites now. I have contacted micrsoft IE 7 support for this problem, but the rep today could not solve it. Some body more knowledgable will be contacting me tomorrow. If the problem is solved, I sahll post the solution.

    The Microsoft support people did not call. However, I reinstalled IE 7 beta3. It is integrated with windows, and cannot be uninstalled from Add/Remove, since it is not listed there. I changed the following registry value:

    Under:
    HK_LM\software\microsoft\active setup\Installed components\
    {89820200--ECBD-11cf-8B85-00AA005B4383}
    In the rt hand panel Are:
    Name Type Data
    Default Reg_sz Internet explorer

    Installed Reg_Dword 0x00000001 (1)

    I changed the value of 'Installed' key to 0x00000001 (0)

    And then reinstalled IE 7 beta3. After installation and the required reboot the Reg value had got changed to the original value. The cookie problems were solved. I did not try installing without making it appear that it is not installed. Without change in the value of the 'Installed' key at the above site, it probably would not have reinstalled.

    So it seems that the first installation was somoehow corrupted.

    There was another problem; the 'home' site could not be changed. At the suggestion of the tech rep, I changed the 'home' site from the safe mode. He said that he can change the 'home' site on his IE7 beta3, and that probably some third party software is interfereing with this function on my computer.
