My operation system is WinXP,SP2.and my browser Internet Explorer. In an effort to set my browser to accept cookies, I go to I.E >Tools > Internet options > Security > Custom level > Security Settings. Instructions I obtain from the net, then tell me:

"Scroll down to the Cookies heading.
Click on the options you want for stored and non-stored cookies. Click on Disable to reject all cookies. Click on Enable to accept all cookies. Click on Prompt to ensure that you'll be asked permission before accepting a cookie."

My problem is I have been unable to locate a "Cookies" heading and do not have sufficient knowledge of the terminology to identify the correct section under a different name. Would you be good enough to advise as to the exact wording of the heading I must amend under Security Settings. Thank you in advance, Mchaggis.

You might want to review, "How to manage cookies" from the Microsoft KB article at this link. Hopefully that will give you a better overview of the whole cookie process. hth

I thank you for your speedy reply. I looked up the site and it provides much more information on the subject than the one I used previously. I should be able to get where I want to by following the instructions. Greatly appreciate your assistance. mchaggis
