    What am I over looking. On Yahoo when I log in and put a tick in the box to save the password I get the message cookies rejected on this computer.

    I can log in as long as I don't try to save the password.

    I checked and rechecked the security setting and the all cookies are enabled but I keep getting this message, what am I over looking.

    Merry Christmas to all,

    I don't use cookies for auto start myself
    but could this be your antivirus setting
    or do you have one of those cookie
    programs loaded?

    No not the antivirus program and don't use any cookie programs. It is the standard IE 5.5.

    Don't bother to bookmark it, it didn't work. Thanks for the try though.

    Yes I have, I have deleted the cookie folder as davey suggested and deleted all cookies and still the same. I have 2 machines and the cookies work on the other machine so it has to be something on this machine I am over looking.

    Must be a setting somewhere that I see and it is not registering right and I have it set wrong. Just can't figure out which one it is.

    There is cookie files and url files and dat files all over the place
    in the system. I did not believe it until I ran a program Kento found called spider. Have you ever tried it? If not give it a try
    and see if it is in one of those remote areas.
    I use it all the time now when I clean house.

    Keep us posted.

    Have a look at the date on your machine. Sometimes the year is set incorrrectly. Cookies will not be accepted if the date is set too far in the future.

    You have a good one going here. Have tried an IE repair by chance?

    Yes tried detect and repair and also something else I took notice of. On a site if I put a tic in a box it just acts like I didn't put the tic in the box.

    I filed out a reg. form for Norton and said no emails, well got an email right away and have been getting them. Doing this on other sites as well.

    I checked the date and I am off by a year or more. Problem is I don't have anywhere to change the year on the time/date clock.
