Greetings all,

Like to keep cookies disabled, but some sites require them to, say, buy something. Getting tired of the 6-stage process in Win ME for tuning them on & off. Any shortcuts or little utility programs out there? Thanks in advance.

Try giving Opera a whirl (the web address is, predictably, www.opera.com). It has a "quick preferences" menu in the File drop down, on which you can enable/disable cookies and other useful things, like turning off pop-ups.

I've been using CookiePal for 3 years now without any problems.
It's easy to use and maintain.
Looks like they have a free 30 day evaluation period.
It was worth the 15 dollars....at least to me it was.

You can use IE's Trusted Sites Zone to add a list of sites which may accept cookies.

Do remember, a cookie is set by at least 90% of sites, and can't be malicious or contain personally identifiable info. It can only store info that you gave to that site (or one of its advertising partners). Occasionally you will pick up a tracking cookie, it can be deleted manually, or you can find them using Spybot Search & Destroy. So I would leave cookies on, clear your cookies occasionally and run spybot every couple weeks. The internet will suddenly be more functional.
