Getting used to something new
The switch to IE7 is just the same as getting used to the new version of almost any complex New Thing - software, TV Remotes, Cars, etc etc. I have not experienced the problems that you and many others have reported.
I believe that computers (the combination of Hardware and Software) are, next to human beings) are the most complex things in the world. The permutations and combinations of any mix of hardware and software and the way in which that mix is used, makes each computer installation different from almost every other one. Again - another comparison might be: if 100 people used the same cooking recipe and the wsame equipment, the results would slightly different in each case. How otherwise could it be possible that in this, and almost every other discussion of computer topics, people seem to experience widely differing results and take diametrically opposing, and often violently different views.
In the case of the 'cookie problem', I suspect the difficulties that anyone may experience will lie in the interactions between Browser, Firewall, and Antivirus/antispam/antimalware, etc etc etc.
Additionally, I find that on the whole, discussions (whether on the internet, Political Debates, etc etc) usualy involve people with dis-satisfactions or negative experiences, while people who are generally satisfied tend to avoid the discussion and get on with other things.
I cannot diagnose your particular problems, and I do have one or two of my own with IE7, but I expect to be able to solve them in time, either by myself, or through someone else who is probably smarter than me whose experience and solutions will also work for me. Good luck, and don't give up on IE7, Arthur
