BROWSER COOKIE FUNCTIONALITY IS TURN OFF. UNABLE TO TURN IT ON


A cookie is a string of information that is sent to your computer from each website that you visit. Cookies are harmless. Why would you want to delete them then? The reason you would want to delete cookies from your computer is that they can store information such as user name, IP address, password, email address, shopping cart items and any strings of information that can be related to your identity. Cookies that are on your computer may slow your computer down. Therefore you may want to delete cookies from your browser. 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

Hope this helps

How to Clean Cookies
You can clean up cookies from your system by using the options available in Internet Explorer. To delete cookies, perform the following steps:
  1. In the Internet Explorer window, open the Tools menu and select Internet Options.
  2. Depending on the Internet Explorer version installed on your computer, on the General tab you may see a section with options to either delete temporary Internet Explorer files or the Browsing History.
  3. If you see the Browsing History section, select the Delete button.
  4. In the Delete Browsing History dialog box that is displayed, select the Delete Cookies button to remove cookies from your computer. You can use this dialog box to delete other types of Internet files, such as history, form data, passwords, and temporary Internet files.
Note: Remember that when you clean out the cookies, all of your preferred settings for various websites are lost.

Good Luck.....

Won't allow cookies


First-Get your antivirus turned back on. NEVER disable it.
Go to tools, options and set your cookie handling to what you want. Some sites want all sorts of extra things opened up. Don't do it. They install spyware on your computer. Make a phone call instead. A $1 phone call is worth a lot more than the time it will take to clean up your computer.

My computer is not accepting cookies.


Assuming you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer, you have to do this:
  1. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. Click the Privacy tab, and then click Advanced.
  3. Click Override automatic cookie handling, and then specify how you want Internet Explorer to handle cookies from first-party Web sites and third-party Web sites (a Web site other than the one you are currently viewing).
    • To specify that you want Internet Explorer to always allow cookies to be saved on your computer, click Accept.
    • To specify that you want Internet Explorer to never allow cookies to be saved on your computer, click Block.
    • To specify that you want Internet Explorer to ask whether or not you want to allow a cookie to be saved on your computer, click Prompt.
  4. If you want Internet Explorer to always allow session cookies (cookies that will be deleted from your computer when you close Internet Explorer) to be saved on your computer, click Always allow session cookies.
 Notes
  • Some Web sites require cookies; therefore, if you select a setting that does not allow cookies to be saved on your computer, you might not be able to view certain Web sites.
  • When you change your privacy settings, the changes might not affect cookies that are already on your computer. If you want to ensure that all of the cookies on your computer meet your privacy settings, you should delete all of the existing cookies on your computer. When you return to Web sites that previously had saved cookies on your computer, the Web sites that meet your privacy settings will save cookies on your computer again. The Web sites that do not meet your privacy settings will not be allowed to save cookies on your computer, and might not function properly.

I enabled my cookies and still experience difficulties with my PC


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.
