Yes, this sounds like a cookie issue. You can clear your cookies at http://dvdtalk.com/forum/member.php?s=&action=logout

If that doesn't work, read the instructions at http://dvdtalk.com/forum/misc.php?s=...1#clearcookies

I am having a similar problem on both my home (w98) and work (winME) pcs, though more frequently at work, both using IE 5.0x.

What ctyner is suggesting is that you try deleting and then resetting your cookies.

You might need to go to your user settings and tell the forums to stop storing cookie info for your browser. Then use the links ctyner provided.

Then, log back in and then reset your user settings to remember your name/password.

It didn't work for me, though it seemed to make things better, but good luck to you.
