Sometimes, even when cookies are turned on in the browser, a cookie cannot be written to the computer. Some operating systems and some internet service providers have filters and blocking software that could affect cookies. If you do not see a place to turn these off, consult the documentation for your operating system or contact your internet service provider for help.
Another possible issue is a strong firewall. To see if this is the problem:
Sometimes the Windows firewall is turned on and you are not aware of it. If you have another firewall installed, you can turn off the Windows one:
Windows 10 and 8
Note: If your PC is connected to a network, network policy settings might prevent you from completing these steps. For more info, contact your administrator.
It is recommended that you have a firewall running on your computer. Make sure that you turn your firewall back on as soon as you are able to access a database, or if this does not fix the problem.
Known "hidden" firewalls:
Comcast Xfinity modem/router. Contact Comcast for instructions to turn it off or change settings to allow cookies.
