    Hi Dear,
    I am a newbie here.
    I had a major problem with spyware which I sorted out after downloading various anti spyware programs and following advice of people like you on the net.
    I did some changes on my IE 6 on Win XP so that I got a prompt whether to accept the cookies or not... It was fine until by mistake I ticked no to it... that is dont accept cookies while signing in yahoo mail and I also ticked Remember this decision..(foolish me)
    Now I cannot sign in yahoo as it says cookies rejected.
    I have tried my best by undoing the changes I made but still ... I cant log in and the same msg is coming.
    Somebody plz plzz help me

    When you block a cookie in IE6 and have it always act that way for that site, it places the site into the Sites list in the Privacy tab in IE's Internet Options interface.

    In IE, goto Tools Menu > Internet Options... > Privacy tab > Sites... button. Scroll down the list and find the site in question, (which should show a value of "Always Block"), highlight it and click the "Remove" button. Then hit OK out of those screens. That should stop the block on that site for the next time you go there. (While maybe not necessary, you may want to close IE and reopen it again prior to trying to sign on there.)

    The image below is from IE6 under XP SP2, but it should be similar for earlier versions. Just look for the sites list in the Privacy section.
