    Weird Website Login Problem


    I have been trying to login to a website that I have used for years. When I try to login it does not recognize my password. I have tried the same on 3 other pc's and I have no problem. I thought it was the site problem, but wondered because I can login on to other computers, I wondered if I may have some setting on my computer that is preventing my login. I have ran 3 scans, reset IE explorer, did a system restore, checked my trusted sites and it is in there. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Hello Jackman,

    You might see if deleting your cookies for that site in case it may be corrupted, and making sure that you have cookies enabled may be able to help.

    Loaded Firefox and it works. I am not a fan of Firefox, but I better used to it!!!! I know weird things happen and I just can't figure why IE 10 got mixed up. Seems there would be some way to correct it.

    Thanks a bunch, I never thought about the browser.

    Well, at least you know it's just something in IE10. When you upgrade to Windows 8.1 on the 18th, you might try again in IE11 to see if it sorted itself out with the update.
