Cookies wont allow downloading a photo


in your browser window, find the Tools tab on the Menu option. Click on Tools, find Internet Properties at bottom and click on it. On the General Tab find the 'Delete Cookies' button and click it. This will delete your browser cookies if using Internet Explorer. Refresh browser(close and open again). If the photo will still not download it might be 'protected' by the original photographer or site you are downloading from. You cannot download items that are 'privately protected' by owner or web site.

How do I change security settings so I can download Classic, it says security settis want allow me to do this


Step 1:
Internet cookies allow certain information on webpages to be saved for when the user returns to them. For example, a Yahoo! homepage customization requires cookies, so the user will have the exact same setup every time he returns to the Yahoo! homepage. Browsers typically come with cookies enabled by default, but sometimes a user might disable them and forget that he did. Changing the browser security settings back to allowing cookies is easy.

Click the tools pull-down menu along the top of the browser. "Click" "Options" and select "Privacy." Allow cookies. For Firefox, tick the checkbox next to "Allow cookies from sites." For Internet Explorer, click the "Default" button. Select "OK" to save changes. b> Safari Browser Click the "Menu" button. Select "Preferences," and then "Security." Select "Always" next to "Accept Cookies." Click "OK" to save changes. b> Google Chrome Select the "Tools" pull-down menu. Click "Options," and then "Under The Hood." Select "Content Settings" in "Privacy." Ensure "Allow local data to be set" is selected for both first- and third-party cookies.
b> Manage your cookies and site data http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/answer.py?answer=95647

How to Delete CookiesClearing cookies from your Web browser is simple and easy, and doing so could help protect your private data while you're online. Here's how to do it.

By Michael King, PCWorld Nov 3, 2011 3:00 am

Cookies are usually delectable delights, but Web cookies can sometimes be less than delightful. These little files hide in your computer so that your browser and websites can track your browsing sessions and save certain useful information, such as account names and passwords, for later retrieval. Although cookies may seem harmless overall, they can threaten your privacy if an attacker tries to use them maliciously.

Because of that threat, most modern browsers make cookie storage easy to understand and control. They also make it simple to remove individual website cookies, or even to delete cookies from your computer entirely. Here's how you can perform the latter task in some of the most popular browsers.
Delete Cookies in Google Chrome

1. If you're running Google Chrome version 14 or higher, click the wrench button in the upper-right corner of the Chrome window. From there, select Options.

2. In the navigation pane of the Options page, click Under the Hood.

3. Under the Privacy section, click Content Settings.

zoomicon.pngcontentsettings-5232058.pngClick the 'All cookies and site data' button in the Content Settings window.

4. Under the Cookies section, click All cookies and site data.

5. When the list of cookies appears, click the Remove All button to delete all cookies stored in Chrome.

Alternatively, you can navigate to the Cookies section of your Chrome browser and click the Remove All button to delete all cookies in one fell swoop.
Delete Cookies in Firefox

1. Make sure you're running the latest version of the Firefox browser, and then select the Firefoxmenu. From there, select Options and then Options again.

2. Click the Privacy tab to bring up your user-privacy options.

3. Under the History section, click the Remove Individual Cookies link.

zoomicon.pngcookieswindow-5232059.pngClick the Remove All Cookies button to zap them.

4. At the bottom of the Cookies window that appears, click the Remove All Cookies button to delete all cookies associated with your Firefox browser.
Delete Cookies in Safari

1. Confirm that you're running version 5 or later of Apple's Safari browser, and then click the Gears menu in the upper-right corner of the Safari window. From there, select Reset Safari.

zoomicon.pngresetsafariwindow-5232063.pngIn this window, check the bottom box, 'Remove all website data'.

2. Check the bottom box, labeled Remove all website data. You can uncheck everything else if you want to remove only cookies.

3. Click the Reset button to eliminate all cookies associated with Safari.
Delete Cookies in Internet Explorer

1. Upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer. Select the Tools menu from the Internet Explorer window, and click Delete Browsing History.

2. In the Delete Browsing History window, check the box next to Cookies. You can uncheck everything else if you want to remove only cookies.

zoomicon.pngscreenshot2-5232067.pngFrom here you can choose which parts of your browsing history to erase.

3. Click Delete to remove all cookies stored in Internet Explorer.

Congratulations, you've successfully cleaned out your browser's cookie cabinet. Although cookie files pose a potential threat to privacy, don't forget that they can also improve your Web browsing by making it faster and more convenient.

I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!
