I want to enable cookies but I don't know how


Unless you are using private browsing or the equivalent in your browser, the web browser allows using cookies by default so there is nothing to do. If you are a website programmer wanting to use cookies you need to be more specific.

You need to change your home page. first go to the google homepage then go into your browser settings where you should have "internet options" which should allow you to save the current page (google) as your home page.

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.

How to enable cookies on my hauwei m860


Not sure what a hauwei m860 is car truck bike or computer

Enable Cookies b> When you visit a website, the server may place a cookie on your hard drive. These very small files (which got their nickname from the trail of cookie crumbs you might leave behind you) contain information unique to you, which the web server will "read" to recognize you when you revisit the site. Cookies must be enabled on your computer to view certain websites. Follow these steps to enable cookies on the browser version you are using.

Internet Explorer 6.0 Click "Internet Options" on the Tools menu. Select the "Privacy" tab. Make sure the privacy level is no higher than "Medium High." Click the "OK" button. b> FireFox 1.5 b> Select "Options" on the Tools menu. Click on the "Cookies" tab. Make sure the box to "Allow sites to accept Cookies" is checked. Click "OK." b> Netscape versions 6 and 7.1 b> Select "Preferences" on the Edit menu. Click the "Privacy & Security" tab. Then click "Cookies." Click on the box to "Enable All Cookies." Click "OK."
Enable Cookies in Browser b> Web browsers store cookies from websites you visit on your computer. Cookies can store a website's preferences, your login state on the site or track your browsing activity across a website. Many websites, particularly ones that require you log in, need cookies enabled in your browser before you can log in. Cookies are enabled by default on all major browsers, but you can also enable them if they've been disabled from your browser's options window.

Click the gear icon at the top right corner of the Internet Explorer window and select "Internet Options." Click the "Tools" menu if you don't see a gear icon. Click the "Privacy" tab at the top of the Internet Options dialog. Drag the Settings slider to the bottom to enable all cookies. You can also set the slider to medium or low to allow most cookies, except certain types of cookies that can be used to track you. Most websites should work properly at medium. Click "OK." Mozilla Firefox b> Click the "Firefox" menu button and select "Options." Click the "Tools" menu if you don't see the Firefox menu button. Click the "Privacy" panel icon at the top of the options window. Click the drop-down box to the right of Firefox Will and select "Use Custom Settings for History." Enable the "Accept Cookies From Sites" and "Accept Third Party Cookies" check boxes by clicking them if they're disabled. Most websites should work properly without the "Accept Third Party Cookies" check box checked. Click "OK." b> Google Chrome b> Click the wrench icon at the top right corner of the Google Chrome window and select "Options." Click the "Under the Hood" tab at the left side of the options page. Click the "Content Settings" button to the right of Privacy. Click the "Allow Local Data To Be Set (Recommended)" option and uncheck the "Ignore Exceptions and Block Third Party Cookies From Being Set" check box if you want to allow third party cookies. Most websites should work properly with third party cookies disabled. Close the options tab. Hope this helps.

How do i enable cookies on my computer? and i have java instaled but some games and videos wont play on the computer?


I assume you want to enable Cookies in Internet Explorer (Different for Firefox, googlechrome, etc..).
Open the Internet Explorer, click "Tools", then "Internet Options" and on the Internet Options dialog box, click "Privacy" tab and then click "Advanced" (circled):
221b7a1.jpg


Now in the Advanced box, select the "Overwrite automatic cookie handling"
a5b600b.jpg

Again, select "Always allow session cookies" [note: by default, both the options should be set as "Accept"]
13d066c.jpg

And then "Ok"
Again "Ok". 2ad5978.jpg

Now your internet explorer's cookies has been enabled.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Well you are going to alway get cookies for Web page because they are needed to view the websites. But you can clean them out at the end of each day by bringing up IE, click under tools, and delete cookies. Are you can do a search on *.cookie and delete them individually.

I cannot access my e-mail from this computer. I know I need to have the hughes accept my mail. My e-mail address is nelkarmiller@hughes.net Thank you.


First, try logging on to your email from another working computer of your friend's/family etc.
If it doesnt work, then you have a problem with your email, the password probably.
If it does work, then try and get a different web-browser such as Mozilla Firefox/Microsoft Internet Explorer or Opera.
It should work fine, and also try to enable cookies on your browser.
To enable cookies on Internet Explorer:
  1. Click on the Tools-menu in Internet Explorer
  2. Click on the Internet Options item in the menu - a new window opens
  3. Click on the Security tab near the top of the window. (See first image below)
  4. Click on the Custom Level... button near the bottom of the window (See first image below)
  5. Scroll down to Cookies in the new dialog, and set both "Allow cookies that are stored on your computer" and "Allow per-session cookies to Enable. (Second image below).
  6. Save changes by clicking Ok in each dialog and go to one of the configuration pages again

Add ons and cookies


Sound like a rogue addbot, spybot or a trojan,
possibly a search engine hi-jack.

Allowing third party cookie tracking is dangerous,
this should be disabled, unless you really need it.

Also never enable scripts, except for web sites
you trust.

1) Scan your computer with:

AD-Aware
Adbot Search and Destroy
AVG antivirus

etc.

2) Uninstall Firefox (remove all user settings)
Download a fresh copy, latest version
Re-install it

3) Go to the Firefox Home page ---> add ons,
donload and install:
