I have a new Dell laptop with WinXP. When I try to log into websites (such as eBay) nothing happens. I use the correct username/password, but it just takes me back to the exact same page. This happens when I try to enter any kind of forums where you need to log in, eBay, etc. If I would try to log into this website in order to post from my laptop, it wouldn't let me.
I don't know a whole lot of the tech side of computers. Any help would be greatly appreciated. e-mail me or post here if you have any questions or can offer any advice.

Thank You!

The link above that TQ1911 provided had some replies that may be useful to you. One was an outdated Norton was the reason not being able to access sites. One or more of your security programs may be responsible. What firewall(s),AV,etc. do you have installed on your comp.?

What exactly happens when you try to access the site?
Does the page not load?
Does it load, but you can't log in?
Do you get an error message?

Give as much information about what happens, as you can think of.

Double check the clock settings--especially the year. Check cookie options--allow first party cookies. If this doesn't solve the problem and you have followed the other 7 items then I would, before going on the internet, turn off all elements of McAfee and enable windows firewall. If you are still unable to login, turn McAfee back on after disconnecting from net and turning off Windows firewall.

Ill give the example of when I try to log into eBay...

I log in off of the main page ebay.com.

When i press "log in"...it loads to the exact same page...with the blank spaces for my username and password.
And for another site that i log into....metropolisshard.com (if it matters)....i will log in....press enter....then only the top part of the page loads....and it says

personal information: <my account name>

and that is it....then if i try to post or something it tells me I need to log in.....

Ive turned off all of my mcafee stuff and tried, but it didnt work. How do i enable/disable windows firewall? I don't know what that is.


Thanks guys
