Checking if cookie exists - Error

I wrote an IF statement in order to check if the cookies exists.  If it does exist than it prints the user's name on the page, otherwise if it does not exist (in my case the cookie I'm checking for does NOT exist)  the user is redirected to the login page.

    Public Sub CheckCookie()
        If Not Request.Cookies("userInfo")("UserID") Is Nothing Then
            Call LoadUsersName()
        Else
            Response.Redirect("/Default.aspx")
        End If
    End Sub

Open in new window


When I load the page into a browser I'm getting the following error:

Cookie
Any idea what I could be doing wrong?
