SP 2 and Cookies?

I have researched this question on this forum and I haven't found any answers for this little problem. Is it possible that the installation of the SP2 has somehow screwed up my Grumble cookies? The light bulbs stay lit for 2-3 days, the "jump to new posts" takes me to the First post, etc.

I am vewwy afraid to mess with my Profile and I have never logged off the G since the changeover to the new server. I am afraid I'll lose something.

Could I just do it thru Tools > Internet Options > Security, etc.? I am afraid to touch anything!

I haven't had this problem personally, on the 5 machines I use to access the grumble (all with sp2).

If you know your login info and password, it might be a good idea to erase the cookies and log in again to see if that clears it up.

In case anyone else is having this cookie problem - I wish to report that I went to My Profile, took a DEEP breath, clicked on Delete Cookies - and my world didn't end! All the light bulbs are up to date! I am SO RELIEVED!!!

The Grumble didn't crumble!
I don't know if I downloaded it or not! I had a thing that said "new download available" (or some such words to that affect) and I clicked OK. It only took a few minutes and I'm on regular ole dial up.

Then after restarting I got a message that my security settings needed to be checked. I did that and firewall and automatic updates were listed as "on" with virus protection listed as "check status" but it didn't tell me how to do that.

I kept looking and found a link to MS updates and clicked that. There was one that would take about an hour to download, so I did. After it finished it said to restart. So far so good.

However, after I did that, I still get a message everytime I start that my security may be at risk, and to "check status." Then after that bubble comes up, another one comes up that says my wireless connection is not available - duh, I know that.

Anyway, I have Norton, and everytime an update comes on, I download and install it, so I reckon I'm up to date, but my machine doesn't know it!

I just let it say that and go on with life.

Is that a problem?

Ya did good

Most current a/v programs don't take advantage of that new virus monitor part of SP2. Its ok to go in and tell it that youll be taking care of that yourself, so those annoying pop ups go away.

One amusing function of the new SP2 is that it protects me from pastel rainbow backgrounds and emoticons in my email! LOL!
