Windows 7: IE 9 not saving certain cookies

IE 9 not saving certain cookies

I'm having a heck of a time with IE9 on Win7 here.

Often when either the browser crashes or the computer crashes and I have to reboot without being able to complete a proper log-off, IE will lose certain cookies.

For example, after restarting some forums will have forgotten my login information. I don't use IE's "Remember my password" feature but rather the one on the forum itself.

Some forums require logging back in, others don't. Facebook will require logging back in, and Google forgets the "Never show instant results" search preference that I set.

Any tips? I'm not using In Private browsing and IE is not set to clear cookies on exit. It only happens when there's a crash.

I would concentrate more on the Crash or Reset completely,
Reset ie9 or ie10 manually,
Click the Start button on the Taskbar,
Click on Control panel,
Click on Internet options,
Go to the Advanced section,
Click on Reset button on the bottom,
Check the box to Delete personal settings,
Use the recommended setup and install options.
Shut down your machine.
After Resetting ie9 or 10,
Open ie when prompted that there are Add-ons ready to be Enabled click on No,
Test with the sites your having issues with first before enabling any add-ons.

Can't seem to allow certain cookies. A minor problem, but annoying. For instance, I have as my homepage and it won't maintain my preferred news and weather settings. I can't really tell if this is Windows 7 or Norton, but I've made all the obvious changes to settings in Windows for...
