    password - plus (IE-6)

    My password just bit the dust.......after I logged in and used it!
    This happened just after I viewed a "joke" with a URL on another post that
    came to my email at home.
    I got the temporary password OK, but wonder if there could be a connection?
    The password failed as I was trying to post a reply to the "jokester". It didn't contain a virus (whew).

    Password for what? I gotta admit, I'm not quite sure what or where the problem is, just that there is one. Can you provide some specific information?

    Re: password - plus (IE-6)

    Sorry - Let's try this again
    When you login, you're asked for your name and password.
    This is the password that worked when I signed in, but when I had a problem with a "joke" post (here), I had to shut down Internet Explorer
    to get rid of the URL. It was sent to my email as a group of posts for Woody's. Posted by "ilona53", also known as Lonnie (bubbles) with the
    word next to the URL "laugh". When I clicked on it, some webpage about personal ads for dates came up, and the only way I could get
    the page to go away was to shut down IE, go offline, then come back. When I got back and logged in, the password worked. Later, when
    I tried to post something, it stopped working. I have since gotten a new password, and am using that one now.
    I didn't appreciate the "joke".........or maybe something in my Internet Explorer suddenly stopped working???? Too weird!
    Maybe this helps explain the original post - I hope.

    Sounds like your cookie may have become corrupted - the best way out of that is usually to delete it it.
    (It should take the form of raybee@www.wopr[1].txt or similar.)

    Good grief! Took me 3x reading this, and I still couldn't understand what was going on. Hope that's all it was - a corrupted cookie.
