After upgrading to IE8 I cannot access many sites (including hotmail) because they seem to think that cookies are not enabled .... but they are! I have tried all the different Internet Options settings to enable cookies; I've tried adding the sites to the "always allow" sites list; I've added them as trusted sites; and I've also tried the advanced cookie settings with prompts for all cookies. But nothing works. I'm really stuck on this one and hope someone can help. Thanks!
