    Well where do i start? Basically i seem to have a prob with some web sites, in particular forum sites.

    What seems to happen in most cases is that i try to logon to a site that i have registered with in the past or a new site i chooose, but i just carnt logon ( the sites keep asking me to logon).

    This is usually a new or existing forum and i dont seem to be able to logon with my username and password as i used to, or even new username password?

    For instance this web site where i used to be able to download files i need http://www.close-combat.net./index.php i can get to the web page but if i try to logon i get no joy, for this and many more sites?

    I previously had no probs with this so im thinking what have i changed to alter my settings.

    All i can think of is a programme called "addshield" which basically stops unwanted popups. I found it was restricting my surfing so much i had to uninstall it.

    But i seem to still have a prob, for instance i can logon to this forum ok but if i go to the above website and try to logon....no joy :confused:

    However if i go to the milatary gamers forum and select a link on the forum to the above website ( close-combt.net ) i can logon but i get the images as a small red X and not the images i should be seeeing? So im even more confused :confused:

    So im here to ask if anyone knows if they know of any settings i may have changed in the past that would cause such a prob for me?


    thx...rob

    I assume that you use IE. But whatever be your browser, I think you need to enable cookies to be able to login at sites.

    In IE, go to Internet Options > Privacy and check your cookie settings.

    In Netscape 7, go to Edit > Preferences > Privacy & Security > Cookies and change the options.

    Installing addshield must have changed the settings.
