I assume this belongs in the “Defense+” section only because I can’t imagine which other part of CIS might affect the symptom I’m seeing…
…and, frankly, I’m not certain that CIS could be causing it, either.
But I have to ask because it’s driving me nuts… and I want to ask first before I start doing a huge amount of disabling things and testing. I mean… if someone here knows, then my time is saved… and maybe others reading this will be helped.
Basically, it seems like ever since I upgraded to CIS 3.10.102363.531 (but maybe it was happening before… I can’t remember… but I think just since the most recent, as of this writing, version), my IE8 can’t remember its Google “Preferences” settings; or the login name and/or password of any web site; or even keep me logged-in to web sites which have aggressive session cookies checking procedures.
Yes, of course, I know it’s a cookies-related thing. But, believe me, I’ve got the most liberal cookies settings set in my IE8 that you can imagine… or at least I’m pretty SURE I do.
As long as I remain in the browser session, I can maintain my Google cookies, or stay logged-in to Yahoo Answers or Experts-Exchange as I move from page to page and question to question. However, the minute I close all browser instances – and especially if I reboot Windows – all Google preferences are lost. All memory of my logins at any web site are lost. It’s MADDENING!
Does CIS – specifically the Defense+ part of it, but, really, any part of CIS – ■■■■■ around with, or block, or delete or in any other way fiddle with IE8 cookies in such a manner that it will effectively render it incapbale of holding-on to something as simple as Google preferences?
And though I’d normally be offended if someone came in here and asked me if I’ve set such-and-such in IE in a certain way (because I feel I’ve got it all covered), I’m now wondering if I’ve missed something, or something is going on with IE8 that I’ve just somehow missed out there in my readings… so I’m open to being told just about anything here as long as it’s reaonable.
Any idea? Any at all? Please? Anyone? ??? :-\
