    Hi all,

    Recently my wife noticed that when using sites such as Amazon and eBay problems occur. On Amazon, when you click view cart, it will not let you and gives an error telling you to enable cookies on your browser. They are enabled and everything is right. I get the same error on Internet Explorer, Chrome, and FireFox. On E-bay we see issues when bidding on items, it makes you repeatedly log in which makes bidding on a hot item almost impossible. She also stated that the enlarged view does not work.

    Things I have tried:

    -Different web browsers as stated above
    -Uninstalled AVG
    -Ran malwarebytes and removed any adware
    -Re-installed Cisco (router software) and reset IP address
    -Checked Registry (some google searches pointed me here) zone values are all correct.
    -Logged into Amazon cart using SSL (HTTPS) This worked! it lets me view my cart. But I have to manually log in HTTPS everytime...
    -Deleted chache and cookies
    -made sure cookies file was not corrupt
    -checked to make sure Date and Time are correct. They are

    I am out of ideas. The HTTPS (SSL) login works on Amazon, havnt tried it on eBay yet.

    When you are using these sites do you have multiple tabs open in those browsers? Specifically the same site in multiple tabs.
