I recently started using IE6Sp1 and noticed they have a "Privacy" tab on the internet options. I use to go in to Security and set my cookies. What would be a normal setting for the setting in Privacy? It is now on medium.

I suppose everyone will have their own opinion on this, but I have always had mine set to "medium high" and I've never had any problems.

Thanks. I think I will leave mine there.

I have only had one problem and that was today. I joined another forum and I have their cookie stored in my preferred cookies in a .txt file. I wipe my cookies about once a week. I can click my icon for that forum and it will take me there an show me logged in. But if I get a notification in email of a reply and click on that url it takes me to a window and show me not logged on. Just a minor problem that I am trying to rectify. I use to be able to add sites a lot easier in IE5.

One IMPORTANT thing to remember tho.....


When you set the Privacy med ot up, you can basically forget about getting into secure sites...such as banking etc.

I set mine to "Accept All Cookies" because Micro$oft is trying to change the way that cookies are written and handled.

I guess they want the Web Surfing Public...And web developers to bend to the mighty Micro$oft!

I use Low and let my AV software earn it's pay. That way, I never have a problem accessing any sites.
