    Hi, I recently installed Spybot (thanks you guys for all the help) and I don't know if this is what is causing my problem or not, but many pages I go to say that I do not have cookies enabled.

    Which I do.

    So... could spybot have changed the seetings or something?

    I don't know.
    Thanks,
    Sun

    Well, if this problem started after u installed spybot, then it might as well have changed the settings.
    In IE, go to tools>internet options> privacy.
    Is that setting is too high, some cookies will not be allouwed.
