Thread Name: Mudcat FAQ - Newcomer's Guide
Subject: Cookie Problems - probably on your computer
Somebody asked me why he keeps having cookie problems. Here's my answer. Any other ideas?
You know, I haven't been able to figure out why some people lose their cookies, especially when it happens more than once. I know how to fix it - go through the login process and enter user name and password. I know it's caused by a cookie on your computer that gets deleted or corrupted - but I can't understand why it never happens to me. Almost always, the problem is on the user's computer, and not at Mudcat.
I guess it's a good idea to do a little maintenance on your computer every month or so - you might try the complete login instructions (click) here in the FAQ and delete and reset your Mudcat cookie and clear your history and browser cache. You might use the maintenance tools from Norton or McAfee, or the ones that come with Windows (hit your "Start" button and look in programs, go to "accessories," and select "system tools.") If you use Windows System Tools regularly but wisely, you'll have fewer computer problems overall.
We tech geeks do have one serious problem solving problems - the common Mudcat problems never happen to us.
