WIN XP SP2 with IE 6. ISP is Verizon DSL.

Except for GMAIL, all other app's I login into either send me immediately back to the login screen, or do so after I have been thru a few links. This includes JUNO email, Vanguard securities, INGDIRECT, another brokerage site, etc.

This problem started about a week ago and thought it might have been after installation of M/S fix KB938464 on 9/11, but I uninstalled that and there was no change. Msgs from the various app's usually indicate that it thinks the session timed out due to inactivity. But sometimes I get the login screen again immediately upon initially entering my used id/password and hitting enter.

I've tried lowering the privacy setting for cookies which seems to let me get further, but I still eventually get knocked off even when all cookies are accepted. My normal setting, which has always been OK, is medium.

I added one of the problem sites to the "trusted sites" zone under IE security settings with the level set to low, but this did not help either.

I don't know why GMAIL will keep me logged on, but the other sites (both HTTP and HTTPS) will not. If GMAIL gets this problem I'm in a world of hurt!

I have IE 7 ready to install. I'm getting desperate!!!

I installed Google Chrome yesterday and it does not have the problem.

I'd still be interested in any opinions on what happened with IE.
