Cookies?

Hello guys. I wanted to hide somthing from my "Recent Places" and i disabled them... So now i dont have cookies.. I dont know if this is the problem but i cant save even 1 cookie since then... I use Google Chrome and Opera and i'm sure that i've enabled the cookies for the both browsers ...

Hello Aaster, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Does enabling "Recent Places" allow you to have cookies again?

Next time, you could just do a system restore using a restore point dated before the issue to fix it instead of using some questionable 3rd party program.

In that case, export the two registry keys below, and post them here. I'll be happy to take a look at them to see what may be wrong.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Ok... apparently in this last hours i have make some modify on gpedit.msc..... i have search all function inside Menu start and apparently i have make some modification on some "not configurated" value and i have reactivated all two option.

Otherwise i want to post also my actual value:
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoDriveTypeAutoRun"=dword:00000091
"NoCDBurning"=dword:00000001
"NoLowDiskSpaceChecks"=dword:00000001
"NoSimpleNetIDList"=dword:00000001
"TaskbarNoAddRemoveToolbar"=dword:00000000
"QuickLaunchEnabled"=dword:00000001
"NoSearchInternetInStartMenu"=dword:00000001
And here:
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoActiveDesktop"=dword:00000001
"NoActiveDesktopChanges"=dword:00000001
"ForceActiveDesktopOn"=dword:00000000
At this point i want to create some my custom Jump List... i have tryed to use "JumpList Launcher" but it's not work....... i have also found online another tools called "JumpFolder" and also here i can't understand how i can bring up the "Jump List".

Otherwise for speak about Jump List here it's OT....

Great news DJ. I'm glad you got it sorted.

Yeah, go ahead and create a new thread for jump lists to see what we can do to help with that.
