I recently got a new laptop and every security code (captcha codes) I enter, I always get an error that says the code is wrong. It happens on every single site. I also have trouble trying to sign up to certain websites like istockphoto.com

However, when I tried on a different laptop all the captcha codes worked and I could sign up to istockphoto. I think there's something wrong with my laptop, does anyone have any ideas?

I'm using Google Chrome, and on both laptops they share the exact same settings but nothing works on my new laptop.

Check the settings for cookies. Many sites use cookies to mark that someone has logged in or entered the correct information.

Cookies are enabled.
And both settings are exactly matched up for both laptops. And since it works on my old laptop, but not my new one - I'm assuming it isn't the Chrome setting issues.

The 2 can't be the same or it would work.

Chrome uses IE for all its settings, so that is where cookies need to be enabled. Security software can sometimes block cookies, too, if there is a setting for that.

I specifically changed all the settings on Google Chrome on my new laptop to match up, I even deleted the extensions that came with my new laptop. And I have Norton Anti Virus but I disabled it to see if things would work but it still doesn't.
