Cookies no longer accepted

Since last week, none of my web browsers (IE, Firefox, Chrome) accept cookies. I went to check their respective settings, they are all set to accept cookies.

I own 2 other computers, they all allow me to go to my regular web sites and accept cookies.

Can anyone help me?

Welcome to Seven Forums michouthefirst. When you say they will not accept cookies, why do you say this? Do you get an error message that cookies are not enabled? Are sites you sign into not saving login info?

The easiest "fix" might be to use a System Restore point from before the problem began

System Restore

Since the problem is with several browsers, we are looking for a common cause. Windows updates, Security programs, etc.

You can try booting to Safe Mode with Networking, and see if the issues you are encountering do not occur there.

Safe Mode

If the cookies work in Safe Mode, then I would try a clean start to see if something is conflicting
