    IE7 installs, but flashes on for a moment, then turns off! This was the reason I got rid of it the first time I tried it. The new complete version of IE8 works good.

Install IE7 or if possible Mozilla Firefox 3.0, Mozilla Firefox is much stable, fast & secure than IE. You can also use Mozilla add-ons for more productivity.

How to get gmail to accept cookies

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.

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.

WWW redirect not working

Depending on the version of IE you are using, to in to the Internet Options by either Tools > Options or Tools > Internet Options, or though the Control Panel and then Internet Options or Internet.

Once you are there click on the Advanced tab at the far right and then click on "Restore default Settings" or "Restore Settings" or "Restore Advanced Settings". This should allow the FQDN forwarder to work again.

Just a reminder, this may change your home page so go back to the general tab before you close down the Internet Options box and make sure your home page is correct. This will also reset any custom settings you may have with websites that you have set up in the past.
