Cookies (and sometimes the cache ) are being eating.

by mabauti / March 3, 2006 12:00 PM PST

When I close the web browsers (Opera and/or Firefox), I have to log in again (on the sites required); I don't use IE (is excessively slow for me)

- I do not have CLEAR COOKIES ON EXIT (or clear cache on exit) enabled on the browsers.

- I scanned with antyspyware (Ad Aware, SpyBot & MS A-Spy) and with Avast AV and found neither spyware nor virus. All of them are up to date.

Any advices? Sad

p.s. I'm using WXP-H

I recently had this issue in which i could not log in on cnet.For days i could not get this issue resolved.

Then i got it.This is what i did

In FF>tools>options>privacy>cookies>exceptions button,maybe certain sites are blocked and you could change the status,worked for me.Don't know anything about Opera

Just a thought

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
