Cookies.

A cookie is a small data file that can be written to your hard drive by a website when you visit it. It can contain certain information, but not personal information unless you supply it. If cookies are used, you may set your browser to notify you so that you may refuse them.

How do I enable cookies ?

To check, or to enable cookies in Internet Explorer, go to the top of the browser window where you will see Tools, - hit that and you will see a dropdown menu - select Internet Options, and in the Option box select the tab Privacy - in which you will see a slider bar which you need to drag down to the bottom - hit the Apply button at the bottom and you are done. That's it. By the way, cookies are quite harmless and are used to help you round a site, or - as in this case - to enable the shop software to recognise you and to pre-populate a form page to save you having to do it.

Some older Windows versions don't have a Privacy tab, in which case in the Option box select the tab Security, and from that window - towards the bottom you will see Custom Level. Open that and slide down until you come to cookies and select Enable - and OK.

The process in Firefox and Chrome is very similar, so if you get the general gist of the IE method, you should be able to do these.  If your browser is cookie enabled, the next time you visit, the form page will be completed for you without having to enter anything. This will not occur if:

a) you are not cookie enabled

b) if you have cleared your cookie folder thinking that this is good house keeping

c) you have a virus or firewall protection screwed down so tightly that it is prohibiting cookies

d) you are using a different computer from the last time you visited

e) you have upgraded your windows version or re-formatted your hard disk.

If you are still having trouble with cookies, they won't work if you have re-formatted your hard drive, or changed computers since the last visit, as they are computer dependant. They won't work if you have invoked Disk clean-up' or whatever it is called, when doing some house-keeping and cleared them all out. You may have Norton or whatever virus checker or firewall you are using, configured to reject them. Last suggestion is that you may have run Ad-Aware or some other security programme, and not selected them for retention.

VIPRE Advanced Security


VIPRE Advanced Security is high-performance security software that doesn’t slow your computer down like older, traditional antivirus products that have been around for years. VIPRE combines antivirus, antispyware, anti-rootkit and other security technologies into a seamless, tightly-integrated security solution. VIPRE delivers comprehensive protection against today’s highly complex spyware, viruses, and blended malware threats.

I have been using Free and Paid AVG antivirus for most of the last decade and found it to be great but the last few releases from v7 onwards have become more and more obtrusive, like Norton and Mcafee and this tends to slow your PC and interupt you when you need it least.

I installed the trial of Vipre in October 09 on my main development machine and was so happy with it that I bought a license for all our machines in the house and office.  It just works! And it doesn't get in your way.  Its also very inexpensive.
