Windows 7: Cookies no longer accepted

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

Let us know specifically what lets you know cookies are not being accepted.

The lid on my HP laptop slammed shut and now my password is not being accepted. (I will never password protect another computer). It doesn't give me any instructions on what I need to do to fix this problem. I cannot do virus scans, defrag or anything. Any suggestions?

Why are credentials not accepted via dialog?
One thing about Windows Networking that annoys me without end and since years (i.e. since XP via Vista and now Win7) is, that whenever I try to access a share on one of my other systems and I am prompted to enter my credentials then this never works. I always have to fire up a command line and...
