Whenever I try to use Google and save my preferences I get the message "your browser is not set up to recive cookies" the same happens when I try to log on in e-bay. I.E. accepts cookies from every other web site I use so I know it is accepting cookies. I have reset all the defaults on I.E. and Norton firewall 2003 just to make sure, but no good. I have also uninstaled and reinstaled I.E. They all worked fine up until a few weeks ago I run XP pro, I.E. version 6 sp1

That should be you prob, if not, got back to the privacy tab and put it to low. But you should have another firewall just incase.
