No Cookies? As of today I am not storing any cookies. I have checked several times today and there are no cookies whatsoever. Usually I have about 150

4/25/13 Update:

Problem solved:

OK, so this is embarrassing.

First of all, thanks to everyone for your tips. I am keeping them for future reference - found out some things that I was unaware of!

Now for the embarrassing part. I felt that I must have cookies stored somewhere because I was not getting any site messages to allow cookies. Yet, every time I went to the cookie window it was blank.

This morning I looked more closely at the cookie window itself. The left margin displayed like this, and was otherwise blank:

>

>

>

>

>

So after thinking about it some more, I looked at the cookie window column headers and started adjusting them. The "Cookie Name" header had slid to the left and completely overlapped the "Site" header. That is why the cookie window was blank. Ugh!

Again, many thanks for your help!

Not that I enjoy cookies, but I understand that they are needed on certain sites.

On Wednesday, 4/25, all of the cookies vanished.

I am not in private browsing mode.

I have checked all settings. Nothing has changed there. (I accept all cookies except 3rd party cookies)

I have Norton 360. A Norton Rep. checked all settings - they all were OK.

So far I have not had any problems in accessing sites, i.e. a message that cookies are required.

But still no cookies are displayed in the cookies window when I check.

Thank you for your help!
