I currently run Windows 98 and use Internet Exporer 6.0

Some of the websites I visit used MSN Passport to log in/out.

Recently, my laptop was infected, (Smits Virus),and I used Spybot which eliminated
the problem.

When I attempt to reach the sites that used Passport, I receive a message that states
"Cookies must be enabled"

The Privacy tab on Internet Options remains set at Custom level, and cannot be re-set to default, nor does
the Advanced options allow me to overide cookies or make changes.

Other sites and programs that utilize cookies accept passwords and open,etc. but the
NET Passport sites will not.

Any help on how to restore defaults would be appreciated.
Thank you.
