    a recent problem..can no longer open Netflix- says cookies are disabled, but
    I've gone throught the standard unblocking procedure to no avail. Using IE 7
    through Comcast. What am I overlooking?

    1. IE Tools > Options > Privacy > Sites > find netflix.com in the list and
    Remove it > OK your way out.

    2. Reopen IE Tools > Options > Privacy > Sites > type in


    and Allow cookies.

    Thanks, PA Bear, but still no luck. Netflix still responds with a message
    telling me to enable cookies...

    Windows version? What Norton or McAfee application might be installed?

    What's the URL (address) where you encounter this message (e.g.,

    Suggest disabling any third-party firewall (and enabling the Windows
    Firewall!) until cookies are working correctly.

    Make certain your time, date, and time *zone* settings are all correct.

    running XP..Had an old version of McAfee, which I uninstalled today and
    loaded Zone Alarm Internet security suite. Are you suggesting I turn off Zone
    alarm temporarily to try and get netflix cookies in? The URL is as you
    guessed: www.netflix.com
    Thanks again.

    Thanks again, PA Bear. I first uninstalled McAfee thru add/delete programs,
    but then went in to use the removeal tool you mentioned. It failed right at
    the end...
    " PASS C:\temp\MCPR.tmp removed successfully
    WINERR ITaskScheduler::Activate() failed. Error: 0x80070020
    WINERR ITaskScheduler::Delete() failed. Error: 0x80070020
    FAIL Error while running cleanup using Task Scheduler."
    ....however, this may have nothing to do with my present problem? Anyway, I
    also tried the second option, but still no luck. There is a ghost in the
    machuine for sure! tom

    Like Tom I haven't been able to get into Netflix. Not being that computer
    savvy I've tried everything suggested that I've been able do myself. This
    has been going on since I updated to IE7 months ago. What is the cause and
    what can be done?
    thanks saralini

    Hey, my daughter had the same problem when I upgraded her PC to IE8. I finally called Microsoft about the problem, they said to run Silverlight Ver3. So I removed Silverlight ver4 rebooted, then found Silverlight ver3 installed it and it plays Netflix fine now. Stop (uncheck) Silverlight from installing automatically with windows updates.

    You dug up an old f---ing post from 2007 that has been dead for THREE YEARS!

    Stop dragging up posts from the dead.
