Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Cookie/History problems A couple of Web sites I visit often have begun intermittently having trouble getting my browser (IE 8) to accept their cookies (my Privacy setting is Medium High, and I haven't changed it). About a week ago I deleted all my cookies, and that seemed to fix it for a couple of days, but now the sites (specifically, Yahoo Groups and Amazon) are having trouble again. When I say "intermittently," I mean that in a given session reading messages on Yahoo Groups, for example, it will give me this message: "Your browser is not accepting our cookies. To view this page, please set your browser preferences to accept cookies. (Code 4) Try Again" And if I click Try Again, it will apparently be able to deposit the cookie (or perhaps find the previously deposited cookie), and the session proceeds as normal for a while--but then I'll get the same message again. Also--and I suspect this is related--my browser has stopped keeping my browsing history. Again, I haven't changed my settings. Otherwise my system (running WinXP SP3 Pro) is working fine; no other programs are having difficulties. I scan daily with the latest version of AVG Free, which is updated daily, and I keep up to date with all Windows patches. I've also installed Secunia Software Inspector, which reports that all my software is properly patched. I don't have antispyware installed; I am running Windows Defender. Any ideas?

Try this. Visit www.filehippo.com - DL ccleaner and run it , (making sure all your browsers are closed). after running the cleaner, go to the registry button. Then scan for registry errors. it will ask you if you wish to make a backup. this is up to you. after you clean both the registry and the cleaner.. reboot your system. you should now be able to access all sites with no problems. ^_^

You might have to uninstall the current version of intarnet explorer you have on your computer then restart your computer then run the jet clean utility. http://download.cnet.com/jetclean/3000-18512_4-75627788.html JetClean tidies your registry, gets rid of junk files, deletes broken shortcuts, and attempts to give your computer that like-new feel again. Then delete cookies Here is a very simple guide on how to delete cookies manually from your computer.

Click on "tools" in your browser. This is usually located in the upper right corner of your browser. Click on Internet options. This will appear in the drop down box and is usually at the bottom. Under the "General" tab look for "Browsing History." Under this heading you can click "Delete" to have the computer delete all cookies for you automatically however to delete the cookies manually click on the "Settings" tab Click on the "View Files" tab under the "Temporary Internet Files and History Settings" box that pops up. When you do a second box will pop up with a list of cookie containing files. This may take a few seconds to load so be patient while waiting for the cookie files to load. Highlight any cookie file that you would like to delete. You can highlight more than one at a time by holding down the 'Ctrl" button on your keypad Delete the files that are highlighted by clicking on the "delete this item" located to the left in the same box. As soon as you do you will see the selected files disappear. When you are done just "X" off; this completes your task of manually deleting cookies. You might also do a disk clean up click start click on computer to open right click on your hard drive usually C: select properties in the general tab select disk clean up click ok you can view files to be deleted. Then reinstall Hope this helps.
http://download.cnet.com/internet-explorer/3000-2356_4-10497433.html Internet Explorer 9 is surprisingly competitive across the board. Zippy browsing speeds, minimalist layout, and innovative features make this not only the best version of IE to date, but will catapult Internet Explorer back into the browser wars. The one big drawback? You must have Windows 7 or Vista to use it. XP users are stuck on IE8. Forever.

How to get gmail to accept cookies


When you visit a website, the server may place a cookie on your hard drive.

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."

This should be very simple as it all depends on what browser you are using, firefox or internet explorer.

if it firfox click on the orange button at the top left of the screen depending on which version , then go to options , then click on options.

go to and click on privacy there should be an option for history click on the dropdown box and select the one that says use custom settings.

Check accept cookies for websites
Check accept third party cookies

there should be a similar option in IE aswell.

Hope this helps

I cannot log in to facebook


My suggestion can apply to most any service that requires a login.

Clean up the cookies, and the browser cache. Sometimes a corrupt cookie or corrupt cache file can cause some problems.

It is also very important that the browser security and privacy is set to allow cookies, history, and web caching.

If you are using Windows 64 bit, and you are using IE 64 bit, there can be issues when signing on to some sites. Try using IE 32 bit if this is the case, and providing the suggestions above have been looked in to.

Sometimes my computer shows that i can't go any further as i haven't enabled the cookies. What are cookies? Are they safe? I seem to need them; do I?


Cookies are data crumbs left by web sites you visit.  That is how they know what your interested in and give you suggestions based upon your browsing history.  They are also used by your computer to load data faster because some of the information for the web page already resides in the computers memory from the last time you visited.  You can delete cookies if the information is outdated or corrupt or you don't want to be tracked, but the web site will take a bit longer to load the next time you visit.

Cookie: VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=I6ULXOL2hYU; __utma=27069237.3582438350991212000.1239168012.1245777657.1245801341.248; __utmz=27069237.1245220189.213.2.utmcsr=xat.com|utmccn=(referral)


In computing, a cookie (also tracking cookie, browser cookie, and HTTP cookie) is a small piece of text stored on a user's computer by a web browser. A cookie consists of one or more name-value pairs containing bits of information such as user preferences, shopping cart contents, the identifier for a server-based session, or other data used by websites.
It is sent as an HTTP header by a web server to a web browser and then sent back unchanged by the browser each time it accesses that server. A cookie can be used for authenticating, session tracking (state maintenance), and remembering specific information about users, such as site preferences or the contents of their electronic shopping carts. The term "cookie" is derived from "magic cookie", a well-known concept in UNIX computing which inspired both the idea and the name of browser cookies. Some alternatives to cookies exist; each has its own uses, advantages, and drawbacks.
Being simple pieces of text, cookies are not executable. They are neither spyware or viruses, although cookies from certain sites are detected by many anti-spyware products because they can allow users to be tracked when they visit various sites.
Most modern browsers allow users to decide whether to accept cookies, and the time frame to keep them, but rejecting cookies makes some websites unusable. For example, shopping carts or login systems implemented using cookies do not work if cookies are disabled.
