hi i've just started using a new comp and cant login to the forums. im using my laptop at the moment. i do use zone alarm security suite but it works fine on my laptop. ive tried to replicate the settings on new comp but it says i need to activate cookies. ive allowed them to be used for THG but it still wont allow me to login.

Almost all these problems relate to zonealarm and the like. Just turn it off for a moment, and see if you can log in. Maybe you have to put in the specific domain forumz.tomshardware.com vs. tomshardware.com?

thx for the reply, i might just have to switch it off and rely on the windows firewall, however it is not a long term solution and does not explain why it works on one computer and not another.

i also tried adding the forumz.hardware.com address to my trusted site list to no affect.

right ive fixed it. instead of turning zone alarm off i just enabled windows firewall aswell and managed to logon. a strange problem. maybe THG's website doesn't recognise my settings when zone alarm is the only firewall.

Weird solution, but glad it works :D 

You mentioned forumz.hardware.com which you added to trusted sites. Hope that is a type, otherwise try forumz.tomshardware.com.

ye it was a mistake and i am also confused about weather it is a IE problem or specific to THG forumz as i have been able to enable cookies for other websites and use them as normal.
