Windows 7: Why am I "loosing" cookies for some websites?

09 Apr 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional x64

I'm sure you'll be okay for a day or two; just don't visit any *adult* sites, DO NOT download any torrents or even search for them. Just confine yourself to email, sevenforums, and whatever sites you are sure are safe.

See if CookieWall will help you keep the cookies you want ...
Network Downloads : CookieWall /// AnalogX

After deleteing or keeping a cookie, right click on the cookie icon, choose Add/Delete and if it looks okay, then click the ok button. It will remember what you choose.

It's an idea, but I really dont want to be surfing the internet without protection...
You can use Sandboxie to run your browser sandboxed. It has settings to let browsers have direct access to cookies. Anything you don't allow direct access goes to the sandbox instead. You can set it to automatically delete the sandbox when the last sandboxed program closes. Once your browser comes up there's no noticeable speed hit. It's just a tad slower coming up off the HD.

Win 7 Ultimate
still no resolution

Well, I tried contacting Kaspersky's forum to see if there is anything going on that might be causing this, and I am being told NO:

Why am I "loosing" cookies for some websites? Is it KAV 2010 related? - Kaspersky Lab Forum

I have even tried wiping out ALL of the stored / cached files... and still the same results.

This is so frustrating!

Windows 7 Pro x64

Hello.. just thought I'd sign up to say that I'm having the same problem. Did you ever find a solution?

I like you am using Windows 7 (x64), IE8 and Kaspersky 2010. What confuses me is I have 4 systems running very similar configurations, and its only my main PC with this cookies issue, and again its only a handful of sites I'm visiting its doing it for. Very frustrating, can't think what could be causing this.

Also posted on the MS forums about this issue, but no reply as of yet - IE8 on Windows 7 (x86 and x64) losing login information (cookies)

Have tried full reset of IE and a full clear out of all temporary internet files and cookies, but still the same annoying issue. I know switching to another browser would work, but I'd rather get to the root of the problem and get IE8 working again.
