When I attempt to sign into various Web sites (google, yahoo, etc.) , I get error messages that say my cookies are NOT enabled. But they are! I have tried all recommended steps and solutions to no avail. This appears to have happened after either a systems update and/or files cleanup. I can't log in to accounts and I'm out of ideas. Help!!
I am using Windows XP Professional with SP2.
