View Full Version : Cookie/Security Handling

21-11-2002, 09:21 PM
I have a problem where my comp wont accept any cookies under IE6. Also the security certificates are all showing as expired. I have tried reinstalling them multiple times and have reduced security settings to low.

No change.

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated

Thank you

Isn't there under internet options a section allowing cookies, check that.

Are you sure you are running IE6 there should not be any security certificate problems with this.

Set all IE options back to default.
With IE open go to Tools/Internet Options
1/ On the General tab press "Delete Files" then tick "Delete All Offline
Content" then press "OK". Now press "Delete Cookies" then "OK".
2/ On the Security tab press "Default Level" then press "Apply"
3/ On the Privacy tab press "Default" then press "Apply"
4/ On the Content tab press "Auto Complete" press "Clear Forms" then
then "Clear Passwords" then "OK" then press "OK"
5/ On the Connections tab select your ISP connection and press "Set
Default" make sure the "Always Dial My Default Connection" is selected.
press "Apply"
6/ On the Programs tab press "Reset Web Settings" remove the tick from
Reset My Home Page" press "Yes" then "OK" then "Apply"
7/ On the Advanced tab press "Restore Defaults" then press "Apply" then

Not suggesting by any means that I learnt this one by experience but have you by any chance been fiddling with the system date?

If, for some obscure reason, you changed the date to last year - then the security certificates will be "out of date".
