Ie cookies not enabled

I am stumped.  I have been working on this problem for 3 days.  I have tried every solution on the internet to no avail.

the problem:
A site with a username and password field and a login button will not let me log in ''
it says that my cookies are not enabled.  I have renamed dll's, edited the registry removing IE migrate keys ect just like the support articles told me to........before re-installing windows.  I have deleted cookies too and renamed potential 'corrupt' cookies.  No luck.  Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance

If you have any add or pop up blockers they could be the problem. Also any other program running in the back ground my be causing some interference. You may find which one it is by process of elimination by closing them down one at a time. Also check to see if maybe if you are running a firewall if it is causing the problem.

There was Mcafee software on this computer which was uninstalled.  Now there is AVG antivirus, zone alarm. and running procs are cleared up.  It's gotta be some hiding dll somewhere.

Well this is not the easiest way to find it, but there is a list of the most common nasty dlls here:

Anything with a status ov X is known to be a bad actor, anything with an O status is suspect.  Unfortuantely it is a long list.:^(

first go to tools - internet options - privacy - and accept all cookies, check if the login page works then. if not it might be your mcafee thats screwing this up you'll have to manually remove the dll's in the registry here's how...

Have you been helped or is more needed?  

From IE - tools - Reset Web Options and return all IE to default settings to test and reboot to advise impact.

Rename HOSTS to oldhosts.
