Mmm... cookies. Know of a good program to control them?

Q: Mmm... cookies. Know of a good program to control them?

I've got IE 5.5 on my computer, and I don't want IE 6.0, because that seems to cause probs for me.

Anyways, know of a good program that will allow me to accept and decline cookies that I want or don't want? Preferrably freeware, although shareware that isn't annoying is ok.

Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Mmm... cookies. Know of a good program to control them?

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: Mmm... cookies. Know of a good program to control them?

Hiya

You could try this although many prefer 3rd party programs.

Tools | Internet Options. Security tab. Custom Level.

Scroll to Cookies, and set to Prompt. There are 2 of them. Apply and OK.

My computer has been running rather slow for the past couple of months, and things seem to be getting inherently worse. I am having problems with my internet explorer, and it will not even let me download the newest version. At one point I did a system restore and after restoring the computer to an earlier date it said something about internet explorer renaming some files so they would be kept, that sounded kind of weird to me, but I guess I'm not too familiar with the process. My virus protection programs have been catching a lot of spyware and tracking cookies lately as well. I know something is up, but am not really sure exactly what and where I should start cleaning up. My computer would also not let me run the panda online scanner, it said I must have Internet 5.0 or better installed, which I thought I had, and like I said, I have not been able to download Explorer 7.0 even though my windows xp has been validated.

Is there any way to "tell" Windows (8.1) which programs are OK to run and modify the system? I get tired of saying OK every time I run one of many utilities like True Image 2013, Auslogics, CoreTemp, CPUz and the list goes on and on. I have UAC set to the lowest level short of Off. I really don't want to turn UAC Off since I keep thinking it might actually catch a bad guy sometime! I have my W7 systems UAC set the same way as W8 but don't get all the annoying popups! Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I was wrong - W7 UAC acts the same way as W8. I had it Turned Off in W7 and turned it on to the lowest level to check but the change does not take effect until the system is rebooted. So...I'll run W8 with UAC Off too unless there is a better way.

Hello Ken, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Sorry, but there is not an exception/safe list for UAC. That would defeat the purpose of UAC to seek your approval before letting something run elevated and having full access to the computer.

If you like, you could use either tutorial below as a workaround to create an elevated shortcut of a program that when used will not give you an UAC prompt and still run elevated.

Louis,This issue may occur if the Outlook registry key is corrupted. When other programs try to use the Outlook Simple MAPI interface, they cannot retrieve the required information from the registry.You must first remove the corrupted Outlook registry key, and then perform a Detect and Repair operation to have Outlook rebuild the key. To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit, and then press ENTER.
In Registry Editor, locate the following subkey in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Clients\Mail\Microsoft Outlook
Select the subkey, and then press DELETE.
Click Yes.
Quit Registry Editor.
Start Outlook.
On the Help menu, click Office Diagnostics.
Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the repair.

Important: Above section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

Have you restored your machine to a point in time before this all began? Have you tried running 'sfc /scannow' from the command prompt?

Hi everybody. Im kinda new here so dont be to hard on me. I have an older Dell pc that I am running with windows 2000. Over the years it has gotten a bit slower and Im sure a little clogged up. I went through my programs and discovered that over the years I have collected several programs all related to maintaining the pc. What I would like to do is uninstall ALL of them and do a fresh install of ONE program that does it all. Is there a program that does it all? Currently I have installed:

System Mechanic 6 Professional
Kaspersky Internet Security
SUPER AntiSpyware
Spyware blaster
Smart Defrag

I also must admit, I really dont have any problems with spyware or anything else. Like I said, a little slower than it used to be. But that is to be expected. I know that there is a new System Mechanic 8 out. I was thinking about upgrading to that and uninstalling everything else. Good idea or not?

A:Is there a good one for all program?

No. I used System Mechanic several years ago. It's not worth the money. Some of the things it does can be done better by free programs and stuff like a registry cleaner you shouldn't use anyway. It's not an anti virus. It has an anti spyware but it isn't very good. And it doesn't have a firewall. Chances are pretty good that Kaspersky is what is slowing down your computer because like most anti virus programs, it's running in the background and all anti virus programs slow down your computer to some degree. You have to sacrifice some speed to get that protection because you'll get infected if you don't have it. With the exception of Spyware Blaster, none of that other stuff including System Mechanic runs in the background so they're not slowing down your computer. Ditching all your security programs just because your computer is a little slow is throwing out the baby with the bath water.

I was wondering if such a program exists and if so, can someone recommend one? I'm looking to clean up some files on my registry. Is that safe? I've already used some programs like Spybot, Ad-aware, Norton and Trojan Remover. But, it seems I still have somewhat of a lot of programs still running in my registry which could possibly be slowing my computer. Any recommendations?

A:Looking for a good program

Hi Chadwick0211,

Registry cleaners are not recommended. When you say there appear to be programs running in your computer and slowing it down, how do you know this? What programs have highlighted them?

The reason I ask is that programs that run in the registry are either necessary system files, optional programs which you have installed or malicious files which have sneaked in. You can damage the registry very easily if you don't know what you are doing.

There are safer things to do with the second group, like stopping them running on startup, and experts here can help you with the last group. We just need to know a bit more about them.

Also one last question is, is it bad to have both Adobe Reader X and Adobe Acrobat 7 Pro on your laptop?

A:What program are good to have on?

From the browser's settings menu or options, look for the add-ons section to disable or tweak some or remove them completely. Do you have a particular issue with your computer? Ccleaner is mainly use for clearing your temp. files and could also be helpful in removing programs, no other. If you want to disable startup programs which are not needed during booting, you can try MS autoruns or startup lite by Malwarebytes.

i have downloaded x-cart demo version from the website and installed it on my localhost. but when I try to get into the website by providing credentials, I'm getting an error message from the browser saying "Your browser doesn't accept cookies. Cookies are required to use this site".

I have set the Internet options -> privacy settings to low. but still I'm unable to get into the website. whenever i select any item and click on "add to cart" button, I'm facing this error dialog!!!!!

Anyone got an idea what it could be, or how to solve it?

Any suggestions are welcomed....[]

Thanks!!!

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.

Hi! I cannot use the "remember me" feature on sites such as Gmail, Facebook, Yahoo, online banking, etc. When attempting to log into online banking, I recieve the message that "session cookies are not enabled". I know how to enable cookies and have done so under Internet Options> Privacy> Advanced... I don't know if it's malware related, and nothing I've tried has picked it up or fixed it. I've used AVG, Symantec, Spybot S&D and a few others in failed attempts to find anything malicious. I also have HijackThis and can post a log in the other forum if needed, just let me know. I've read the "read before posting" information and hopefully have included the appropriate info. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

PS - If I click "remember me" when logging in to Gmail, the page "redirects" for a while and then doesn't go anywhere. In order to even access the Gmail homepage again, I have to clear my cookies. Also, I have uninstalled any P2P software, as I am now aware of how dangerous it can be.

Hello! I accidentally placed my thread in the wrong forum and am wondering if someone in admin would be able to move it to the General Computer Security forum. If not, is it ok if I re-post it there? Thank you!!

I've used Outlook for years, but lately I've been using Mozilla Thunderbird. I've had trouble sending emails with attachments, so I called Earthlink (my ISP). They said thunderbird is an older version of Netscape and I should download and try Netscape. I have tried several times to download it, but it has failed every time. Not sure what's the problem with that.

Does anyone have an idea of a good e-mail program? I've liked Thunderbird because it's easy to set up various address books, folders, etc.

Thanks -

I taped both of my sisters' graduating ceremonies in the last 2 months and I still have a previous vacation to encode as well. All from a Sony MiniDV Camera, what's the best software I can use to get the BEST resolution & quality? I know codecs are probably required as well.

I'm not worried how much the software will cost either, miniDV tapes seems to be expensive around here, I rather pay enough for an encoding software and be able to re-use the tapes.

I was using Windows Movie Maker before that came with Windows and damn, that's horrible stuff.
 

A:Need a good encoding program ^^

Do you want to just encode the video, or do you want to make transitions, effects, etc.?

VirtualDub is a free and great utility for the first variant, but I don't know if it supports DV format (guess not). Didn't you get some software with your camera?

Edit: VirtualDub does support capturing video from camera's so you can use it. For the codec, I suggest xVid (just configure it well)

One that lets you create virtual copies of physical CD you can put in virtual CD/DVD/ drives. I had one called virtual drive, but not all my CD/DVD's would work with it. I'd put them in the drives and wouldn't see them/react. I hope the newer ones can recognize more CD/DVD's.

When I used Mac I liked the fact that there was something that showed the Weather with a click of the button (I think it was the dashboard?) Is there a way to do something like that with Windows?

A:What would be a good weather program?

In Win7 rightclick a blank area of desktop, select Gadgets, drag the Weather gadget onto the Desktop, in Tools select your Zip Code, expand it to show 3 day forecast. If you want more detail click on the day. Perfect.

I also use the calendar, and Sticky Note in the Start Menu. No other versions of these are as stable.

If this is for Win8 (you are at Win7 Forums) then you can get replica gadgets at 8GadgetPack - Gadgets for Windows 8
