Your browser doesn't accept cookies. Cookies are required to use this site

Q: Your browser doesn't accept cookies. Cookies are required to use this site

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....[]


Preferred Solution: Your browser doesn't accept cookies. Cookies are required to use this site

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: Your browser doesn't accept cookies. Cookies are required to use this site

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.

I previously registered with a website, and everything has been fine until now. The website now cannot log me in, and says that my browser (IE 7)does not accept script cookies. I'd lowered the security level to Medium, and added the website to the safe list for cookies, regardless of privacy policy. And it still doesn't work!! Anyone got an idea what it could be, or how to solve it? Thx.

A:My browser doesn't accept script cookies? Please help

I have absolutely no experience with IE7, so can`t solve your problem with it. However, if you were to try a different browser such as Firefox, this may at least solve your problem with that particular website.

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

My operation system is WinXP,SP2.and my browser Internet Explorer. In an effort to set my browser to accept cookies, I go to I.E >Tools > Internet options > Security > Custom level > Security Settings. Instructions I obtain from the net, then tell me:

"Scroll down to the Cookies heading.
Click on the options you want for stored and non-stored cookies. Click on Disable to reject all cookies. Click on Enable to accept all cookies. Click on Prompt to ensure that you'll be asked permission before accepting a cookie."

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. Would you be good enough to advise as to the exact wording of the heading I must amend under Security Settings. Thank you in advance, Mchaggis.

I don't see anything malicious in your log.

Is it possible that it has been blocked before? Check the list of sites listed under Privacy that are being blocked to see if it's there.

You could also try adding it to the Trusted Zone.

I have Chrome, I've never had this problem until today. It won't let me log on to coppermine and some other forums, it keeps saying 'Your browser does not accept script cookies.' The box in settings is checked to allow but it still won't. I tried to restart my computer, I deleted everything. I even uninstalled Google and re-installed. 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)

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
session cookies" check box. Please see picture below....

I have seen references to the following settings as being where those options exist, but nothing that explains ... Read more

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.

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 .

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?

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.

A:Registry Needs Repair / Cookies Cookies And More Cookies

Unless you know what you're doing I would stay away from the registry. Cleaning your registry is unlikely to improve your computer's performance in any noticeable way and you run the risk of really screwing up the operating system.

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.

I seem to be having trouble with my cookie settings when accessing just one particular www site.

When I come here to TSG I have no problems, it recognises me as John v Burns - as it should - without the need for me have to to re-enter my account details. This is also the same for all the other forum based sites I visit regularly such as ; www.themouthpiece.com, www.irishacts.com but there is one site that I don't quite know what is going on with...

.. it is www.phpbb.com - which is the support forum for the excellent php appication I use to run my www site. It is an excellent site, but every time I visit that site I have to re-enter my account details and password and I don't understand why.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this might be happening please ...?

I'm having the same problem. But only in FF.. IE still works perfectly fine, but in FF3 it will not log in for me anymore. it's irritating.

when I for example come here to vista64. the name and password area are blank. when I start typing my username. it remembers it and fills it in, and then when I hit tab, it remembers the password and I just hit enter and it logs in..... but BEFORE I didn't have to do any of that. it would just be logged in for me.

It's been doing this for about 2 weeks give or take. but only in FF.. IE works fine with saving.

Hi all,

Is there a way to completely delete all kind of cookies stored on the machine, including super cookies and any other kind of them?
If not, can reinstalling the OS (Windows 7) with formatting the C: drive, remove all of them?


A:Deleting all cookies and super cookies

abbasi said:

If not, can reinstalling the OS (Windows 7) with formatting the C: drive, remove all of them?Click to expand...

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.

This question or issue concerns the Real Estate Flex MLS website and a discussion of cookies in general. It appears that the users' user name and Password only hold for a period of about 5 days and than are required to be reentered, The cookie information for this site also disappears after a reboot of the machine, But this appears to be the ONLY site with username/identity information that does this. All other cookies are remaining intact. The company seems to require IE 7 to integrate with this site and an update per information on the page is coming December 2nd. What would cause a particular cookie to behave in this way? I think it is a security issue, but can anyone provide additional information?

Also moving the IE Privacy settings to "Accept All Cookies" does not solve the issue above pertaining to the MLS Flex website. The default setting for IE's Privacy settings is "Low," which rejects cookies from Third Party vendors.

I also have not specified an exact time when this issue started happening from the user, but I would say about 3 weeks to a month ago. All updates (Windows XP, SP-3) are installed on a Dell PC, and system is always up-to-date with AV protection and there is also no evidence of malware intrusion.

I delete temporary files from the computer. I have 3 different anti-spyware programs and 3 registry cleaners I use to check on things though I only use them to delete what I'm sure is safe to delete. However, I keep turning up hundreds of tracking cookies when using all of those programs. I attempted several times to delete those tracking cookies by going into Options & Privacy. I tried deleting them one by one and some of them won't delete. I tried deleting them all at once and that doesn't work. I tried deleting them with the setting not to allow cookies and the setting to allow cookies. Nothing works to get rid of them totally. I've searched the net for answers on various sites but haven't found anything I don't already know about. I'm really at a lost on this one!

A:[SOLVED] Firefox Doesn't Get Rid Of My Tracking Cookies

From Firefox:


Disabling third-party cookies in Firefox can stop some types of tracking by advertisers, but not all.
Some websites (for instance, Microsoft's Hotmail, MSN, and Windows Live Mail webmail) use third-party cookies for purposes that are not necessarily privacy concerns, and disabling third-party cookies may cause problems with those sites.

Most websites which you login for, will use session cookies to keep track of your personal settings for that particular login session.

When my father goes to Blockbuster.com, and tries to login to his movie queue, he gets the following message:

The browser you're using cannot sign in. It is not accepting our cookies. We use cookies to identify you. Read more about cookies and how we use them in our privacy policy.

He has tried resetting Internet Explorer settings to the defaults, and tried lowering his internet security to "Low". He does not have a firewall or antivirus running. He has even tried putting that site in the "Allow" list. It still refuses to allow his access to his account.

On every other site he visits, such as Yahoo!, it accepts cookies fine. He has even tried reloading Windows on his computer! Nothing seems to fix the problem. Any help would be grealy appreciated.

A:enable cookies in browser

Will if you have No Script installed you may have to give that site the rights to run the java script first and then make sure you let it set a a cookie.
Look in your cookie manager Exceptions and make sure your not blocking the site but allow the site to set a cookie.
If the site is not listed then add it at the top and and click the allow button.

Hi. Strange thing started to happen today. When I open up IE and try to go to my set homepage which is hotmail.com, it goes to the screen, then cuts off and I get a message saying my browser is set to block cookies. I have my setting at a medium-high now. This is where I have had it set ever since I have had this computer, and it always allowed me to use hotmail. I even tried changing the setting to medium, but no luck. Other sites work fine. I have already ran progs like adware se and avg and restarted my system. I have no idea why I am still not able to view this webpage and am getting this error. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I need help with a technical problem. It is a little complicated. I have been living with my girlfriend for the past two years and I have noticed her engaging into suspicious activity during the past few months. I suspect that she has been engaging in fraudulous online transactions. Especially since, she has been hiding her bank transactions from me and not allowing me to look at them. We both use the same computer, which has Windows XP and Firefox 8.0.1 installed. I know she does not save her username and her password on the browser. Do you know of a way I could uncover her username and password from her cache, or her cookies since I am not very knowledgeable about all this. I really need to know this so that I can find out for myself what is actually going on. I know this is a little bit dangerous, but I am trying to salvage our relationship.

I hope I will get a response.

A:Cookies being deleted by something outside browser..?

Same antivirus too?

The only thing I can think of on top of my head is if you use CCleaner. They made a change in the latest version to include the file monitor even for free users. When you start CCleaner another process is also started to monitor changes on the disk. I'm not sure but think it only alerts and not automatically cleans. Don't know cause I disabled it immediately. Well not immediately because there was a bug in CCleaner, but in the version published 26 sept you can turn that off.

I have win. XP and a cable (always on) conection.
In Iexplorer>tools>internet options>advance>I checked"empty
cookies at browser close, but when I close all the way back to desktop, then check for cookies, they are all still there. Is this because of the cable allways on, or am I missing something.
I have to open Iexplorer to get to the cookies as far as I know,
but I closed the browser and reopened it to get here so there shouldn't be hundreds of cookies it seems like to me.
Any Ideas.

I have both FF11 and IE10. For some websites I do allow cookies to be saved. I seems I can't do this for either browser with my 32bit Win8 Consumer preview. Is there some windows setting that is controlling this? In FF options there is no mention of cookies anywhere, except for one check box labeled "Tell sites I don't want to be tracked".

Hi, my roommate recently was experiencing browser hijacked and didn't know how to deal with it. The problem might be caused by his grandchildren who sometimes come over to use his computer to download some programs such as Buddy2Buddy and other games. I followed your preparation guide to clean up the computer and it seems to help alot. Among the critical objects identified by Spybot Search & Destroy and Ad-Aware were data mining tracking cookies and some browser hijackers, etc. I didn't take down the names but I remember one was MtWebSearch or something like it. But the Ad-Aware continued to show critical objects when scanned.

Previously my roommate had a security suite from Cox but the firewall used was Windows'. When I followed your guide to download and install a better firewall, in this case ZoneAlarm, the Cox anti-virus program was disabled. There was no way to get the Cox anti-virus program re-started, so I had to download one from your guide, in this case AVG 7.5. Now, everything seens fine except that lucomserver_2_6.exe and others such as Server of Logitech and Webshot constantly asking from ZoneAlarm for permission to connect to the internet.

I'm attaching the hijackthis logs before and after following your guides, bitdefender report and Ad-Aware logs for your inspections and await for your advice. Thanks!

Many suggest that we should delete browser cache/temporary internet files to increase system/browser speed. They explain that browser cache causes fragmentation of system drive very fast. So deleting this on regular basis will enhance drive performance.
But I am afraid if this really increase browser performance. I guess browser cache/cookie helps to load webpage faster because the browser downloads this files when we visit them.
Also deleting browser cache after each browsing session will affect those who have limited download option. Because once i experimented that extensive browsing ~3 hrs will increase the browser cache size to ~80mb.
So, please help me out of this. Because if it really affects browsing speed in a negative way I would prefer to defrag system drive after each browsing session rather than deleting cache.
