In your browser, click on Tools > Internet Options > Privacy and there you can adjust your "cookie" setting to allow you to visit the site you want. I have mine on 'medium' and that seems to let me go where I want.

Cookies are small text files which when you visit a site, contains information about your last visit, password etc - in fact they contain lots of information about your interaction with that site.

one reason a site says cookies aren't enabled is if the time and date on your computer is not correct - check this first.

if you could post a link to the site - that could also help

I have my cookies set to Medium High and don't have any problems - the lower you have the slider the more chance a cookie will be accepted - but too low and your computers security becomes vulnerable.
