I have a new computer set up at home. Cable modem, IE5. when I log in, my name appears on the list of current users, but I still have the log on prompt and no "post new topic" or "post new threads." It's like I'm there, but I'm not. I can only post from work now (of course only on officially scheduled breaks, declared on time sheets at end of pay period):) My security is set on mediun, and I specifically enabled cookies from AR15.com. Any suggestions?

It's worse than I feared. I checked my cache controls, and it was already set to "check for newer versions of stored pages: Automatically", the same as the settings on the computer I am using now that works fine. Refresh button also does not fix the problem. I also thought about it a little, and I am getting a new version of the page, as my user name does appear down at the bottom along with everyone else logged in as soon as I sign on. It just doesn't appear at the top, instead I get the prompt and no new post new topic options. Very strange.

VICTORY IS MINE! Sorry, I'm just happy I could get something done on a computer. Not my forte', and I can rarely "beat the box." Basically, it was a cookie issue. I had to mess with windows security settings to allow cookies from this (and other) web sights. But it turns out that there were multiple cookie blocking issues, including a little program called AddSubtract that I run to keep pop-ups away. After specifically excluding certain web sights, including this one, from several security functions, I can be protected and ... gasp .. use my computer. This is a real tribute to AR15.com. If it wasn't such a quality product I never would have gone through all this. GoatBoy, I will now get out of your hair for another 2 years [;)], or at least until you need to clue me in that I'm using an outdated browser!
