    can you help me adjust my internet explorer or something so that doesn't happen:S...

    and one of the websites i can't go onto is www.suprnova.org

    I think if you have your browser settings on "high," at least w/ Internet Explorer, that that can happen. Some sites need activex and java to load up, or so it seems.

    Try putting your security settings to "medium" or default (which is medium) w/ Internet Explorer.

    Good luck!

    Hmm... Maybe try to put that site into your "TRUSTED SITES" and maybe that will override the block?

    Also, maybe delete the cookie from w/in your TOOLS then INTERNET OPTIONS then SETTINGS then VIEW FILES. Then try logging on the site. Maybe it will give you a new cookie?

    Also, maybe you have another program that is blocking the site?

    I'd have to google around to find that answer. (I assume you've tried putting your security settings to medium [or even lower]? Note that there are different security settings for normal sites, trusted sites, restricted sites, etc.

    Good Luck and sorry I'm not much help. Perhaps others while chime in...

    Also, at least w/ IE 6 and Windows XP Service Pack 2, there the intructions for the "PRIVACY" tab in TOOLS then INTERNET OPTIONS says the following which direclty deals w/ cookies and blocking them, etc. [you should probably try fiddling w/ the privacy tab regardless of what operating system or version of IE you have [if you haven't already]]:

    To change your privacy settings

    In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
    On the Privacy tab, move the slider up for a higher level of privacy or down for a lower level of privacy.
