From what you have said, it doesn't sound like it is neccessarily a problem with your computer. It may be either a problem with the websites, or you are using the wrong usernames and passwords. Each of those sites have a link where they will mail you your password if you have forgotten it. Perhaps if you contact them?

Once upon a time I got "smart" and blocked all MSN.COM cookies. Didn't bother me until the next time I tried to login to Hotmail - and then I was miserable until I found that the MSN.COM cookies are required for Hotmail to load.

But, this is just one of many possible solutions to this problem.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
