Help: Cookies in my browser have been disabled...Need to enable to get cashback...

Question: Help: Cookies in my browser have been disabled...Need to enable to get cashback...

I made a significant purchase through bing from Drugstore.com and didn't receive my CashBack because my cookies were disabled.

In addition, I tried to go to outback.com and order takeout but also couldn't order because my cookies have been disabled.

I am running Windows XP, Firefox 3.5.3, Norton Internet Security 2010 and Malwarebyte Anti-Malware

I went to Firefox Tools, Options, Privacy, and it is selected to REMEMBER HISTORY.
I have tried to change it to USE CUSTOM SETTINGS but everytime I go back to Privacy, it says "REMEMBER HISTORY"
Is this the source of the problem?

What else could be causing this problem?

Thanks in advance....

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.)

Answer: Help: Cookies in my browser have been disabled...Need to enable to get cashback...

Above in FF "Tools, Options, Privacy then check the appropriate cookies box.

Answer: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.

Answer: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.

Your Web browser options are currently set to disable cookies. To use .NET Passport, you must enable cookies.
.NET Passport stores cookies (small text files) on your computer that let you sign in to .NET Passport participating sites. For information about how to enable cookies, see the online help for your Web browser.
 

Answer:How can I Enable my cookies plz

If you have no proxies or cookie blockers, go to Internet Options, Privacy tab. Clicking the Advanced button will give you more options.

People may disagree, but I allow all 1st party cookies (I have another control in CookieCop), disable 3rd party cookies, and allow all session cookies (erased after you leave the page).

This seems to allow functionality for pages that sometimes won't even load if a cookie is not accepted, but prevents me being loaded down by advertizing and tracking cookies.

Generally speaking, cookies are harmless and help web sites determine what content users want to see. It is feedback for them. They also, as you know, help a web site identify return visitors.

I was recently infected with SpyShredder and Antivirus 2008. I got them removed by following the procedures in this site.
Spyshredder was removed with Smitfraudfix and the other with MBAM.

However, it would appear that when i try and access some sites there are problems that my browser is not set to accept cookies.

Now i have checked my browsers security settings and "allowed all cookies" but still no use. why does it say that my browser is not accepting cookies when it is set to do so ?

also, the red pop-up blocker icon at the bottom bar of the screen has a "black eye" behind it. Does anyone know what this is ?

i have tried other things like accepting session cookies and putting the name of the website in the trusted sites etc ....but still no use.

i have double checked the date and time and zone settings on my pc

i am using IE7 and have full mcafee suite of security.

can anyone advise why it is still not accepting cookies

Answer:im being told that i need to enable cookies. . .but they are enabled

Hi Helen

Did you recently download Firefox? Has this been happening ever since a new Firefox download or update? Has myspace/hotmail ever worked with this browser version?

Which firewall do you have? There is also a feature in firewalls to enable cookies as they block them too. But since its OK in IE, maybe it just a Firefox corruption.

Also which version of Firefox do you have? (there is 2.0 and 2.0.0.1 too)
Check this in Help>About.

Lastly, do you have any extensions or themes manually installed?

In Tools>Options>Privacy check the box for "accept cookies from sites" and type in the myspace address in the "exceptions" list to allow.
Restart Firefox and see if it now works.

My computer (and hotmail) was OK but suddenly since a couple of weeks ago, I could not access Hotmail and got a message saying that I had to enable cookies in order to access hotmail. I tried the normal procedure (Tools, Options, Privacy, Low security, eneble cookies) but it does not work.
The only way I can access hotmail is to delete all Temporary Internet files every time I want to access hotmail before entering The Internet Explorer (it's a nuisance!)
Does anybody know why this happens and how to get the IE to work normally?
Thanks

Hi...I have a simple question. Although there should be a simple answer to this, so far I can't get it solved.

For about 3 weeks, I've been unable to log in to a certain site. The site is Netscape, AOL, and Compuserve screenname service (a screenname from any of those ISP's can usually log-in to any one of their associated services on the web-Netscape webmail, AOL Calendar, etc).

I'm able to get to my netscape email, by using the Netscape Mail & News client, that's included with the Netscape browser, but suddenly I can't get in to the webpage of Netscape mail, which I sometimes need to.

BUT, my main problem is, that I can't get to my AOL Calender on the web (I am registered with a Netscape screenname, not AOL screenname, and I've always been able to get in till now). I use Netscape 7 browser, on a Macintosh OS 9.2.

The message I've been getting is: "We are sorry, but you will need to enable cookies and Javascript to use your Screen Name with this site".

I have preferences set to accept all cookies & cookies enabled, and have tried repeatedly deleting cookies & clearing cache (closing & restarting browser, in between). As far as I can tell, I do have java-script enabled. I've always been able to get in there previously, nothing had changed with any of my settings when this problem started.

I'm running XP and just recently upgraded to Explorer 7. It's working fine except cookies have been disabled. I'm thinking there might be another culprit; however, since I have changed my security settings to override cookie settings and to accept all cookies. I uninstalled Spy Sweeper and a few other security programs in an attempt to find the culprit with no luck. I've uninstalled and reinstalled IE completely and still have the same issue.

FireFox works fine. Any ideas on what I'm missing?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Answer:Explorer 7 Disabled Cookies

I'd take inventory of all your security and tweaking programs. When you disable/uninstall them, they don't always uninstall all of the settings that you've set.

Because of this, you may have to wade through all the settings on all the security programs that you have installed in order to find the culprit.

I just upgraded from version 1.2 to 1.4 and ran the spybot program. It seems to have changed my browser settings because now when I open IE I get the message below:

Right now, your browser's settings are configured to disable cookies and/or javascript. In order to access your account, you must change your browser's settings to accept both cookies AND javascript.

How do I change my browser settings?
This depends on the browser you're using. If you are getting a message asking if you want to accept cookies, choose Yes. Otherwise, we recommend that you click the "Help" button at the top of your browser in order to learn how to properly accept cookies and javascript. (You'll most likely be able to enable these settings by locating the Security and/or Privacy tabs found within "Internet Options" in your browser's "Tools" pull-down window.)

I've tried changing my cookies setting (moved it from medium to low) but it did not help and I don't see anything for the javascript setting. Tried to go back into spybot and undo but that doesn't seem to be an option.

Okay, here's the deal from the beginning... 6 to 10 months ago I got some help on here trying to set up my network card. I finally got it to work but it screwed up my modem and sound cards. We figured out (I use "we" loosely ) that it was caused by an IRQ conflict. I can't remember why, but I was told to try disabling my USB ports (To free up an IRQ channel?) and I did and it worked out fine, blah blah blah, happily ever after.

Now, the deal is, I just purchased a USB game controller which I wouldn't mind using and tried to install it. It said it couldn't detect the controller which is what jogged my memory about the USB disabling. I'm in BIOS mode and I changed "USB legacy support" to enabled in the "advanced" pull down menu. This didn't work. What should I change? And will I go back to having an IRQ problem? Any help would be appreciated. BrianF, you were the one who helped me out last time... Any of this ring a bell?

My wireless internet connection has been working great for over a year on my Dell Inspiron E1505. Earlier today, I disabled my wireless radio by right click on the shell icon on the system tray and clicking "disable radio". Usually this is not a problem...I simply repeat this step and click "enable radio".

However, this time all of my options are grayed out when I right click over the shell icon. When I hover over the icon, it reads "No supported wireless adapters available in this system". When I double click the icon, the prompt reads "Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless Software was unable to detect a supported wireless adapter. Please install a supported adapter".

My wireless connection on this machine has been working great for a long time...is it possible that a simply mis-click has thrown my system out of wack, or there a simple fix that I am overlooking? (The Function-F2 command is non-responsive).

I disabled Cortana and Telemetry a couple weeks ago, but now I want to reverse my actions.
Here's what I did initially:

Code:
In regedit -
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Policies > Microsoft > Windows > Windows Search
I created a new DWORD and named it AllowCortana, and set the value to 0.

I also went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Policies > Microsoft > Windows > DataCollection
I create a new DWORD and named it AllowTelemetry and set it to 0.

Lastly, in the Services tab of Task Manager, I disabled dmwappushsvc, and Connected User Experiences and Telemetry.

In an attempt to reverse my actions last night, I re-enabled the two things in Services, and I changed my two registry keys to a value of '1', and then rebooted. No change. Also tried deleting my DWORDs and rebooting. No change.
I have run sfc /scannow, no problems detected.
I have run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth, no problems.

At this point, I have no reason to believe that the problem is malware. However, what had been happening was that after I logged in, my various startup items would not start up, and I would get an hourglass whenever I visited the Windows toolbar with my mouse.

So I decided I would try turning off startup items to see which ones might be causing the problem. I did so by running msconfig and disabling startup items as I went along.

Along the way, msconfig started giving the following message:

Answer:Almost all services disabled, can't enable them.

While waiting for a reply, I tried the experiment of going through the overall list of services and setting them to be enabled in pretty much the same way as they are on my other machine, which works normally.
