    AOL and cookies

    Hi! I do not use vb but I have the same problems that are discussed in your support forums.

    This is what I have found out and now post at my bb site.

    Users of AOL browsers
    If you use AOL as your internet service provider or if you are using an AOL browser provided by AOL, please follow these instructions below!

    AOL service is fine. However, there have been changes made in their browser software that makes it nearly impossible for you to login and or stay logged in to sites that require user name and password.

    The problem is becoming more apparent as AOL automatically updates their software on your computer when you login to AOL.

    Until AOL fixes this new bug they have created;

    1. you will have to get on the internet as usual
    2. and then minimize your AOL browser
    3. Click on the Internet Explorer icon and use Microsoft's browser to continue with your online browsing.
    This is what it should look like>>>>>>>

    The reason you are having difficulty with login and staying logged in is that the AOL browser software sends different ID numbers (proxy server numbers) when a web site requests it's ID number (cookie information) to validate that you are logged in and approved to view the next page you are trying to see.

    This bb is not the only place it is happening! It is not us! I wish it were, because I would be able to fix it!

    Please give it a try. If you need help, I will be glad to phone you or pm you or email you with instructions.
