Question about Computers & Internet

Enling cookies hi, my compute will not let me access my bank account and keeps saying that the cookies are disabled and offers advice how to enable them. I follow the instructions, Control Panel, Internet Options, etc. go to Security tab and change the settings, to allow third-party cookies. I restarted PC and it still comes up with the message that the cookies are disabled. I've tried in a couple in Internet Options to change to enable cookies but it still won't work. When I first got my PC it worked fine but this has occurred since the computer downloaded updates, but hasn't worked since. I have Windows Vista. Your help would be very much appreciated! Regards, Judi

Instead of enabling cookies, try to add the site to the "List of Trusted Sites".

Go to Tools->options in internet explorer
Go to the Security tab
Click on "trusted sites"
click on the Sites... button
Add the website to the list
You may need to uncheck the "require https://" checkbox.

You are infected maybe by a virus, please scan your system with a potent antivirus, if u r sure that system is a virus free, you uninstall the internet explorer and restart the computer after restating reinstall the ie. , if all of this did not work for you, rather suggest you to use another internet browser such as mozilla firefox.

On the other hand since your system is infected with some virus and spyware i would rather suggest you to backup all your important files and format and reinstall the windows for your safety banking activity.

How to enable cookies on my Google account

Cookies are enabled or disabled by your browser settings.

The procedure for enabling cookies varies from browser to browser, but generally you want to launch the browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, etc.) and look for Options or Internet Options in the menu system for the browser.

From the options menu, look for privacy and/or security settings to see if cookies are disabled. In some cases, there may be an option to allow or disallow cookies for specific websites.

In recent copies of Firefox: If there is no menu at the top left, tap the Alt key to reveal the menu, click on Tools, then Options, then examine the Security and/or Privacy tabs for cookie settings to enable them.

Alternatively, in Firefox, try clicking the padlock or globe on the address line for the site you are attempting to access and examine the cookie settings for that site.

Can not login to my gmail account

Point your web browser at

If another account comes up, sign out of it by clicking the avatar in the upper-right then clicking "Sign out."

If you then still can't sign in to your account, click the "Need help?" link on the sign-in page.

If you're getting an error message, what does it say?

Why cant i find enable cookies on my ipad

The iPad's Safari browser allows you to enable or disable cookies. Most people will want to keep cookies enables. Websites use cookies to keep track of who you and various settings. Some websites will not work properly without cookies. However, if you are worried about websites keeping a piece of information on your iPad, you can easily disable cookies. Apple keeps all of custom options for most of the default apps (Safari, Notes, Photos, Music, etc.) in the iPad settings, which is where you need to go to enable or disable cookies.
First, go to the iPad settings by tapping the settings icon. (Get help getting into the iPad's settings.)
Next, scroll down the left-side window until you locate Safari. When you tap Safari, the safari's settings will show up in the main window.
To enable/disable cookies, simply locate the Privacy block and change the Block Cookies option. Your choices are "Never", "Always" and "From third parties and advertisers". The "From third parties" choice is the best for enabling cookies while keeping a moderate level of security by ensuring you have actually visited the website associated with the cookie. If you want the most secure experience, choosing "Never" will turn off cookies completely. Remember: Many websites are designed to work with cookies and may not work correctly with cookies turned off.

Created a new gmail address and cannot access it. It says I have the wrong address or password???

Hi Cher,
Most likely, you're using the wrong password. Most times this is because you have accidentally enabled CAPS LOCK when you were creating the account, or you were using the numeric pad whilst it was disabled (hence you didn't type any numbers in the password, although you thought you were). Try to login and use the password you know but enable CAPS LOCK or disable NumLock before you type it (i.e. try replicating what your keyboard status was)
If unsuccessful, either give up the account and create a new one or try calling Google support - but keep in mind they may suspect you're trying to hack into someone's account, unless you know all the details AND you're using 2 way authentication (i.e. you have added a mobile number where you can receive an SMS with a code)
Good luck!
