Default Forums repeating me to login

Ive had problems with a few forums (not nessecarily PC tech forums) latley and now im beggining to have the problem here.

Everytime I go to reply/post it asks me to login.
I could answer a post and it would ask me to login, then after that it is ok.
That is until I go to reply/post again it would ask me to login yet again and every subsequent time after that.

Some forums I cant even post at all now cause it would keep looping me into logging in everytime I post.

Is there a virus thats around known for that or something?

I've tired:
- Clearing Cookies
- Clearing entire T.I.F
- Disabling firewall (ZoneAlarm)
- Scanning for viruses (AVG)
- Scanning for spyware (Spybot)

OS = XP Pro
Browser = IE6.0

PS: A friend of mine has the same problem in another forum also so Im beggining to think its not just me...

Make sure you have the cookie security settings low enough to accept cookies otherwise it does no good.

Wow hey now its working.
Thanks I didnt even think to do that cause I didnt see the point and apparently I was shown.

I set my cookie level to the lowest (Except all cookies) and now all forums work good (Some i ain been in for months lol).
I set it back to medium now too and its still working

But what did it all mean?
I never had the problem to begin with and cookies were set to medium?
And now that its been set BACK to medium its now working too..
Spooky...

Thanks again
