| Hello Paul,
| I did check the date and time, they are correct. Also my
| OS is XP home edition and the article pertains to MAC
| users. I reduced my security to next to nothing,
| accepting all cookies, even the security report when I
| get this message says no cookies were blocked or
| restricted. Can you think of anything else? I appreciate
| any help. Thanks
