Cookies not being stored

So I find myself having to retype my username and password for sites such as DVDTalk, Hotmail, eBay, and CAG everytime I turn off my computer. What causes these cookies to not be saved? It's a real pain in the ass to have to type them all over again when they used to be stored without a problem.

If you've changed your security settings that can affect the storing of cookies on your PC.

It would help if you tell us the browser that you are referring to? (IE, Firefox, Mozilla etc...)

I am running IE. As far as I know, I haven't changed my security settings.

Try this:

In IE go to Tools>Internet Options>Content Tab>Autocomplete button>Make sure you have check marks in all 4 boxes. If you already do, then use Click Clear Forms and Clear Passwords buttons. (NOTE:this will clear ALL of your stored IE passwords)


Also in the General Tab, delete your cookies and Delete files button and place a check mark in the Delete all offline content box>Click OK

Whenever this issue bit me in the past, I always simply cleared the cache manually and that fixed it. Tools->Internet Options->Temporary Fles->Settings->View Files. Select everything in there and delete it all. Close and restart the browser.

If that doesn't fix it, Go back to the Tools->Internet Options, and click the Privacy tab. Make sure it's set to "Medium-High" or lower. The "High" setting will block most all cookies.
