Seems like browser settings issue to me. I'd recommend resetting IE's settings to defaults. What's the situation now?
I have been referred to you from the XP forum suggesting that AVG or IE 8 may be the problem.
I use xp pro sp3 on IE 8 and have been getting an occasional error messages regarding cookies. My cookies are set at allow for both 1st and 3rd parties. I get the following error any way. How can I access those sites that gives me this message?
