PCA Login

  highside 19:03 20 Sep 2009

Got a silly situation where its almost impossible to use the forum fully.
Use IE8 (my usual way) and for PC Advisor (& Only PCA) the web page keeps freezing before I can sign in & I have to Ctl Alt Del. On odd occasions like this one I have got away with it.
OK I tried FF and have absolutely no problem arriving at this site but cannot sign in, the login request just keeps reappearing. Nothing wrong with my details, my email address is auto remembered and my password has never changed. I even tried requesting a password reminder and copying that in to no avail.
So 1)IE8 PCA site freezes.
2) FF won't let me login but at least it doesnt freeze.
Any thoughts welcome.

Thanks buteman, FF now OK had to get latest version and allow cookies.

I take it you can still use IE8 as long as you do not go into PCA.
