    I am trying to place an order on Buy.com and it will not let me log in on my Windows XP machine.

    When I try to log in I get a "We were unable to access the page you requested. Our server may be busy. Please wait a few seconds, then try again. "

    And when I try to place something in the cart w/o being logged in I get a
    "Your Shopping Basket is Empty
    If you have tried to add an item to your basket and the basket is still empty, you may not have "cookies" enabled on your browser. More information on cookies. " message.

    I have turned down my privacy settings to accept all cookies. I have checked override cookies, accept 1st party, accept 3rd party...
    How can I fix / find out what the hack is stopping me from opening this page.

    I have an old machine running Windows 98 and I get in/order w/o problems. Any/all help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Joe

    Double click on your Time in the task bar

    make sure
    1. Time is correct
    2. Date is correct
    3. Year is correct
    4. Time zone is correct

    goodluck

    Delete all cookies, delete files, clear history - Done and unfortunately doesn't do the trick.
    Time, Date, Year, and Time Zone are all correct.

    If you use a router to connect through, also make sure its time setting are correct

    (forgot to mention that)
