Cookies, can not accept

Q: Cookies, can not accept

Hello,

This is about not being able to accept cookies, I E version 6.

I have changed and re-changed setting in internet options. I put the bar at accept all cookies. I have shut down my firewall and this did not help. I am using Zonealarm.
I have seen this addressed on several news groups and no one seems to have an answer. I have searched the knowledge base and tried several suggestions, no help.

Starting out, I E 6 was working okay, and then it quit accepting cookies. I asked for some knowledge from this forum. It was suggested that I use I E version 5.5.

I have Win98, Pentium II, 233 mhz, 196 megs ram, 32 g hd, plenty of room.

I used a program call IEradicator to remove I E 6. (http:\\www.98lite.net)
This did seem to remove I E from my computer. I ran it twice. I scandisk and defraged, ran regclean, scandisk and defrag again. I installed I E version 5.5. I still can not get this computer to accept cookies. I discovered that the internet options drop down was the same as version 6. This options menu still has a privacy tab included. I donít think that this is part of version 5.5.

I still canít accept cookies.

Does anyone know what to work over, to help me correct this main problem?

I know that I can empty all data and reformat. Might be what has to be. Did not want to do this.

Preferred Solution: Cookies, can not accept

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Cookies, can not accept

Here are two possible ways that may help .

Dear Fred: Let me tell you of a simple way I have come up with
for managing cookies. It may not work for everyone, but it
works for me.
In the Internet Options (Security tab), I set both the
Internet zone and the Trusted Sites zone to Medium security.
Then, in the Internet zone, I disallow cookies that are stored
on the computer, while allowing session cookies. In the
Trusted Sites zone, I allow both. Whenever I run into a site
which needs to store a cookie (like eBay, Amazon, cable TV
listings, etc.) I add that site to the Trusted Sites zone. At
the end of the day, I have on the drive those cookies which I
need to keep, and all others are history.
To make this even easier, I use a small application called
Trust Setter, which puts two buttons in the IE toolbar, Add to
Trusted Sites, and Add to Restricted Sites. Get it from
http://www.jasons-toolbox.com/ScriptRepository/ .
Available by right clicking on the unwanted page .

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://www.jasons-toolbox.com/cookiejar.asp
Cookies present a dilemma. On one hand, chances are you want to accept cookies from some sites
(for such functionality as saving login information). On the other hand, so many sites write
cookies to your hard drive that you'll probably want to delete them every now and then. Cookie
Jar lets you keep the cookies you want and delete the cookies you don't want. Simply sort
cookies into Allowed and Banned (or Undecided) jars. Cookie Jar can then be set to run when
Windows starts up and delete all Banned and/or Undecided cookies, leaving the Allowed ones
alone.

you failed to state what browser you're using. Some websites are not HTML compliant and insist on using IE as a browser. Even then, newer versions of IE don't always work.

My browser is IE6. I am using McAfee. I have set the privacy settings to accept cookies from "Yahoo.com". But when I try to log into my email address at Yahoo, I keep getting the message: "The browser you're using refuses to sign in. (cookies rejected)". I then went into "Advanced" privacy settings and set the browser to override automatic cookie handling and to allow session cookies. Still got the same message. Can anyone tell me how to cure my browser from refusing the cookies?

Any help will be gratefull received.

Thank you,

A:Browser won'g accept cookies

Couple of thoughts...

some sites require you to have cookies turned on to access even if there is already a cookie on your system...

also setting your privacy settings to accept "Yahoo.com" probably does not include the mail section of Yahoo...the cookie for that may be something like... mail.yahoo.com

Just what the title says. For some reason, I can't login to my Google, ebay or youtube accounts. There are also some sites(like forums) I can't log in to either(this one works though).Ever time it does this, it says that Firefox doesn't accept cookies, and to enable cookies. Well, they are enabled! I allow sites to send cookies, but for some reason I don't receive certain sites' cookies. So I have to use IE for those sites. I just want to get FF to accept the cookies. Its frustrating having to switch from FF to IE constantly..

For the record, I had FF set to automatically accept cookies. I believe it version 2.4.

Anyone know how to fix this?

My problem is I have been unable to locate a "Cookies" heading and do not have sufficient knowledge of the terminology to identify the correct section under a different name.

In IE9, I know I can block all permanent cookies and accept all session cookies by using the "Advanced Privacy Settings" dialog. I also can instruct IE9 to allow cookies that are explicitly put into the list in the "Per Site Privacy Actions" dialog.

But that's not good enough for me.

I don't really want to "block" permanent cookies. I want to accept them all, but only keep them till the end of the session (like Firefox). In other words, I want to turn permanent cookies into session cookies.

Can that be achieved? A user script, maybe?

Edit: I still want to keep permanently those cookies from sites listed in the "Per Site Privacy Actions" dialog. So I can't instruct IE9 to delete all cookies at exit.

First things first, thanks to all who can help.....





I need to programmatically make some adjustments to the Internet Explorer security settings. Most of these settings I have found but there are a few I have not been able to get a clear exact location for in the registry. I will be using a .BAT file to make
the adjustments on 100+ PCs.





Here is what I am looking for.....





Under the "Internet  Properties" found in control panel, under the "Privacy" tab there is an "Advanced" option button. When I click on it I get an "Advance Privacy Settings" options box. On it are several settings.
The first setting, "Override automatic cookie handling" needs to be checked in order to access the other options. I can do that by adjusting the DWord value of "PrivacyAdvanced" under the "Internet Settings" key in the registry,
"HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet settings", to be specific.





What I have not been able to find are the registry entries for the "First-party Cookies" "Accept, Block, or Prompt" options, the "Third-party Cookies" "Accept, Block, or Prompt" options, and the "Always allow

I downloaded and installed several registry cleaners - wise, 360 and slim. Used them for a few days and then uninstalled them. Now whenever I open an internet browser and go on certain sites i.e. BBC I am asked to accept cookies. I do not get the message again unless I clean my system using CCleaner or the browsers own cleaner. This happens in ie9 and chrome and at any site which makes cookie requests. It is annoying as I like to clean the history regularly. I fear that one of the registry cleaners I used affected some registry keys. I have tried changing all the security settings in chrome and ie and they are set to accept 1st and 3rd party cookies. I have also tried editing some registry keys to no effect. I do not have a restore point. Any suggestions gratefully received. James

A:Cookie request after using a cleaner even though cookies set to accept

Hello James and welcome to Seven Forums.

Many Forum members avoid registry cleaners like the plague. It's not a question of if they'll cause problems but when. If you have a system restore point that goes back to a date/time prior to when the problems began you could ty that.

System Restore

If that doesn't help or if you don't have a restore point, you could try running a System File Checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two, this tutorial.) If any problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Please post back if any of this helps or not.

The only thing is when I re-installed my data stuff was still there. I just need help because I don't want to switch back to firefox. Thanks in advance.

A:[SOLVED] Warning your browser does not accept script cookies

I think I have a few ideas:

1.I recommend you set your PC Clock to the exact time and date (If not already done)

2.Try This (Both ways uncheck and checked to see if it makes any difference) :
1. Click the Wrench icon in the browser toolbar
2. Choose Settings
3. Click Show Advanced Settings
4. Click Content settings in the Privacy section
5. Ensure that the bullet for Allow all sites to run JavaScript (recommended) is checked

You can also visit the Chrome Store (although I'm not sure if they have something that might fix that :/) and search cookies or JavaScript cookies and download the apps that show up.

Chrome in my opinion is the best browser, but if its really bugging you, just switch to Firefox, it's worth the time....

Good Luck! (I tried my best)

That is pretty extreme just to clear cookies.

I can't vouch for all browsers, but IE and Opera can be setup to clear cookies every time you exit the browser. Opera allows you to manage cookies, so that only newer cookies are deleted.

On a personal note:
Once I noticed how many cookies were loaded just by logging into Techspot, I said the hell with trying to manage cookies. There was just to many of them, after viewing so few pages. It made finding cookies, you might want to keep very difficult.

I recently changed ISPs and added a Netgear wireless router to the modem. I configured the modem and router useing my PC laptop, and generated a WEP Key with 64-bit encryption. I was able to successfully connect with my WEP Key on my PC and on my TiVo, but my Mac (which is a new MacBook) will not accept my WEP Key, saying there is an error in joining the network.

The dropdown menu in the AirPort window has four choices: (1) WEP Password, (2) WEP 40/128-bit hex, (3) WEP 40/128-bit ASCII and (4) LEAP. I'm assuming that since my WEP key is set to 64-bit encryption, that I should use the first option, which is what I have been trying.

I was able to connect my MacBook to my old wirelss signal, which I have not disconnected it (it's cable-based and runs from a different modem/router; my new ISP is DSL-based), and that signal also has a WEP Key with 64-bit encryption.

I also tried disabling the WEP key encryption for a time, and then I was able to secure a connection to the new signal, but I want to maintain the encryption. Please help.

I would suppose these vague lists are close to the truth http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ABIT/SD7-533.html but it might support faster P4s with 400 FSB, too.

Hello,

By some reason Win7 only wil run with 1 x 2 GB RAM.

First i couldn't install Win7 - i got BSOD wit somthing about VSMRAID.SYS and IRQL NOT EQUAL.
Then I try to remove som hardware, and when I removed one of my to 2 GB RAM, then Win7 was installing perfect.

Afterwods I tryed to inset the second 2 GB RAM again - but then BSoD came again.

What is wrong? Why do Win7 give BSoD?

Win XP was OK with 2 x 2 GB - Why is Win7 not?

RAM: 2 x 2 GB GEIL, PC2-6400, DDR2-800
Mainboard: MSI P45 Zilent/Platinum with the newest BIOS.

Please help me :-)

A:Windows7 only accept 2 GB RAM

Hi,

Welcome to 7 forums

In this regard, i guess the problem is with the 2 GB RAM or the RAM slot. The issue is not with Windows 7.

► Lets say RAM 1 works, RAM 2 caused the issue.

* To find if the defect is with that RAM or the slot, remove the working RAM 1 and place the RAM 2 in that same slot.

* If your Windows works fine, then the problem may be with the other RAM slot. If the RAM 2 causes BSOD now, then the issue is with the RAM. You may have to replace that RAM 2.

* Additionally, you can try interchanging the RAM slots and boot up !.

Hope this helps
*

Can anyone assist with the following?

i Fitted new Asus P5GDC-V Deluxe mobo, board with a P4 3.2 gig processor, the board does post.
However on completing the IDE scan the following message appears.

"An ultra ATA/66 (or faster) drive is connected with a 40-pin IDE cable on the primary channel.
Drive speed is downgraded to ultra ATA/33 mode"

after seeing the message the PC suggests a hardware change has taken place but will not boot from the primary drive,
The correct IDE cable is used (in the correct cofiguration) in the primary IDE slot.
in the BIOS the drive is seen but it appears not recognised?
The boot H/D drive is A seagate Barracuda ATA 1V (model ST38002 1a) 80 GIG.
relitively new with W XP loaded.

If anyone has come across this before i'd appreiciate some guidence.

Regards Libraryman.

Hello. I just brought home an HP All in One desktop. I sat and filled it in last night. I just tried to get on it and I can't get past the login screen. I wrote my password down and it won't accept it. It says my name and underneath, it asks for my psswd. My email is wrong. It says **REMOVED**. That's not me. I have spent 3 hours getting # after # from Microsoft and sites to log onto. Not ONE of them helps ant the online chat is worthless. Is anyone out there able to help me? I'm so upset. Thanks. Maggie

I bought a 15inch notebook in November, paying for Microsoft Word ,Home and Student package. It worked okay until January when Word became disabled, I received a message saying my subscription had been cancelled.(I'd paid to have the package permanently). I was advised to type in a product code. I typed in the product code HP had given me but got a message saying code was no good. I phoned up Microsoft. They said the code hadn't been activated by the seller and was of a type only given for trials anyway.I emailed the HP sales consultant. I got a reply which told me to contact technical support: no link, email address or telephone number. I wrote back, telling them to sort it out or at least pass me on to someone who could.After this I received a text telling me the product was going to be collected from me this Wednesday, Feb1. I got an email from the sales consultant implying i'd asked for this. There's some mention of a replacement but I haven't been told when this is going to be.I phoned up today and I could tell the guy speaking to me was giving me a load of guff. he said the product could only be fixed by them collecting it. He said he'd email as to when a replacement would arrive but I knew he was making it up and the email hasn't arrived.They want to collect the laptop on Wednesday February 1. If I let them collect it I've got no idea when a replacement will arrive and they might try to argue there's nothing wrong with the laptop.I've... Read more

Hi, is it possible to incluse a tick box on a html form which then 'energises' the 'Submit' button?

E.g. I have a form which i want people to read and agree (via a tick-box) to a disclaimer before the submit button on the form is energised.

I do have a vaugue knowlege of Html, but am stumped on this issue.

Thanks, Paul.
 

A:Accept 'Tick-box'

You need something other than HTML to accomplish this. SOme sort of active scripting. I an sure there something that can be done with Java type form validation.

Try as I might, I can't insert a cd in the CD drive.
It has been working and I've tried EVERYTHING that's
on the help line, but really, it doesn't have a cd in
and when I try to put in a cd, it just goes in a bit and
then won't grab and pull it in. Feels like it's butting
against something hard and already in.

This is for a Mac OS X

I just bought some Maxell DVD-R discs which won't work with my Win7 drive.

I've never paid much attention to what I use before, but surprised about this. My other discs that work fine are Memorex DVD+R.

I verified my DVD drivers are up to date.

Please advise.

A:PC won't accept Maxell DVD-R

There have always been different types of DVD RW disks +R and -R being the main ones, check the specs of your Writer to see if you can burn the disks you have. Of course some systems can be temperamental and refuse to accept a certain batch of disks, A certain manufacturer's disks, or even individual disks of a specific batch

My mobo will accept up to PC100 and i have 128 mb of pc100 on it now.Will it accept a stick of pc 133 instead of pc 100.Will it reject it or accept it, and will i have repercussions from it. What would it do etc..
 

A:Will my mobo accept this ram?

More than likely your motherboard will accept it, but it will only run at PC100 speed. And I doubt you will have any problems, just you will not be running the ram at it maximum capacity. If you could give us some more info, like what kind of mobo, ram, etc. you have it would be good.

Ok, I've got a dual P3 700 at work that we really can't use in it's current state at work. It's a fiery tower that was meant to be a print server from EFI . They won't even support the hardware on their website. It's got a Tyan Thunderbolt mainboard in it. They used their proprietary BIOS when they built it so you couldn't change the OS. After finally figuring out what mainboard was in there I went to Tyan's website and downloaded their version of the BIOS and flashed it. Now when I try to install 2K, I can partition the drive with no problems but it keeps telling me that I need to choose a windows 2000 compatible partition to install it on. It doesn't give me the option to format the partition in the setup. I am able to go into the recovery console and use the format command to format the partition, but it keeps giving me the same error in the setup. The hard drive is a SCSI IBM running from the onboard SCSI ultra 2. I checked all the BIOS & SCSI BIOS settings and they seem to be correct. I tried downloading the latest SCSI drivers and loading them before the install, but that doesn't make a difference either. I've also tried different partition sizes with no luck. What I don't get is why can I partition the drive and format it (in recovery console), but can't install on it? Can anyone give me any ideas on what to do? Thanks
 

A:Can't get Win 2K to accept partitions

Have you tried formatting with Partition Magic? I use version 8 to partition all custom systems that I build and I love it, it works grate! I have never had a problem using PM8.
