Unhappy I need to repeatedly log on!

Hi,
has the "log on" system been changed in this forum?

I am finding that I have to repeatedly "log on" again while browsing the threads.

It has changed since the thunderstorm and computer drivers corruption last week. Coincidence?

Could "cookies" settings be causing my problem?

It is more than a little annoying having to repeat "log on" and much worse when I lose a long reply.

Sounds like your internet security settings got changed somehow. You need to allow cookies for this site.

Hi Richie,
i just added DIYaudio to
TOOLS,
INTERNET OPTIONS,
PRIVACY,
EDIT,
ALLOW diyaudio.com

and so far it seems to be better. But I never had to do that before.

Perhpas you have changed the general cookie policy without remembering or even knowing it?

Perhaps you have updated the browser (which may not even know if you use IE and auto update in Windows) so there is a different default policy?

Hi,
I returned the PC to the Vendor to get the ethernet card "alive" again.
The Tech repaired/refreshed/replaced the driver and claimed the hardware was not damaged, he even demonstrated it working before I left.

But, I am now using USB, because when I got home the ethernet card would still not talk to the router.
A day and a half of my time, 2.5hrs of phone calls to BT, 10 repair fee and almost 90 miles of travel and still no ethernet card

But at least Broadband is better than dial-up.

Hang on, thunderstorms NEVER damaged dial-up

So, Yes, things have changed at my end.
Then no change at DIYaudio end?

Hi,
the "allow diyaudio" is still working.

So it appears that my software was changed either by the storm or by the technician.

Thanks all.

I would guess the general internet security level (low/med/hi or something similar) has been changed. Do you use IE? I never have any problems with Firefox but IE was a bit rubbish.

Hi,
I tried Firefox, a year or so back, but could not get the PC to operate. Uninstalled it and went back to IE5.5
