While trying to log on to one of my favorite forums, I got this message:

Login Failed - Sorry, we could not log you in because your browser is not
accepting our cookies. Please enable cookie support and try again.

I have done everything I can think of to fix this. I go on this site daily,
just don't understand what the problem could be. I've deleted cookies,
cleared the history, adjusted security settings, "allowed" my computer to
accept cookies from the specific site. Didn't have this problem yesterday.
Help!

Two things to try:

Do you have a firewall or any other security software which has been set to
block cookies? This could be a cause.

Set the Internet Zone (Open IE, click tools, click security, highlight
Internet Zone) to default. Refresh and try again.
