alligirl (can't log in)

GRR!!  I can't stay logged in!  I've deleted cookies, closed the browser and tried again. But it still doesn't work. This is happening with other websites I have to log in to as well. I can log in and move on but before I can do anything it makes me log in again.  What else can I do?

You mention that you've deleted cookies, have you deleted temporary internet files/cache as well??  Do you have a spyware/adware program that you can use to check your computer for spyware and adware?

ok, now I've deleted the temp internet files and still have the problem (I logged off for a while after I did that).  I don't think I hve spyware...not even sure what that is.  If it helps to hasve more info, I had this problem a while back, and dealt with it, then one day it was fine again.  I don't think I did anything different or special.

Thanks, Gareth!!

Have you tried refreshing (F5) the site once you've logged in?

Also, if you're not already using the Firefox browser I urge you to download and install it.  You can get it HERE  If you use Internet Explorer as your browser then it's highly likely you have spyware/adware on your machine, unless you have some security program running that you are unaware of.  Spyware/Adware can cause your pc to slow down, throw errors when browsing the internet, cause pop-ups etc.  To both check and clean these programs from your system, the most effective program I've come across is Ad-Aware, you can download that HERE
