I was recently infected with SpyShredder and Antivirus 2008. I got them removed by following the procedures in this site.
Spyshredder was removed with Smitfraudfix and the other with MBAM.

However, it would appear that when i try and access some sites there are problems that my browser is not set to accept cookies.

Now i have checked my browsers security settings and "allowed all cookies" but still no use. why does it say that my browser is not accepting cookies when it is set to do so ?

also, the red pop-up blocker icon at the bottom bar of the screen has a "black eye" behind it. Does anyone know what this is ?

i have tried other things like accepting session cookies and putting the name of the website in the trusted sites etc ....but still no use.

i have double checked the date and time and zone settings on my pc

i am using IE7 and have full mcafee suite of security.

can anyone advise why it is still not accepting cookies

thanks in advance

Hello paisleypattern and welcome,

Have you tried using a different browser to see if its a browser problem or a system problem?
