If you're reading this message then I was actually able to stay logged in for once. Over the past week my computer has suddenly become unable to stay logged into websites like Facebook, forums, etc. I can log in at first, but as soon as I navigate anywhere it logs me back out. My IE security and privacy settings are low (just for now lol), and I've cleared out the cookies several times. AVG8 says I'm virus and spyware free. I would greatly appreciate any help/suggestions!! Thanks!

Did you looked at the cookies block/allow list?

Bleeping Computer doesn't recommend the use of Registry Cleaners.
Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications and their potential for harming your OS far outweighs any small potential for improving your computer's performance.

There are a number of them available and some are more safe than others. Keep in mind that no two registry cleaners work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad" entry. One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause a problem when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.

Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone.
Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly can have disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.
For routine use by those not familiar with the registry, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.

Richard Fu - I have no sites in my cookie block list.

samuel3/TMacK - yeah I stay away from registry cleaners. My old computer's registry got a bit mangled by a couple of virii, and then I used a registry cleaner and all went to hell. I've modified a few registry values before to tweak my PC (i.e. MaxConnections to make IE faster), but all were by direct instruction.

By the way, BleepingComputer keeps me logged in, it's mainly Facebook and Craigslist that are problematic right now for me. :thumbsup:

Is there an eye with a little x in the lower bar?

Nope...

Can I somehow provide more information for you guys? Would a HJT log help y'all see there's some process going on that isn't allowing certain cookies to be stored?
