Re: allowing cookies and a referer or referring URL RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am an online student and I keep getting error messages concerning the firewall that I am currently using.  I am currently using the firewall provided by Windows Live OneCare.


    The error message suggested that I allow cookies and a referer or referring URL.  I need to access other databases that are provided by the universitiys' library.  Is there something that I could do in the OneCare settings that would prevent the stopping of accessing those databases? Is there a temporary solution?

  • Do you have any other security products installed in addition to One Care? If so uninstalling them might help. Additionally, open Internet Explorer>Tools>Internet Options>Privacy and select "Default". This will reset cookie handling to the default settings if they have been altered.
