    This works for some folks:

    Internet Explorer users, do this first:
    Tools> Internet options> Security> tick the “Internet” icon> Security level box> set slider to “Medium high”> OK out. Then:

    IE (pre-8): Go to the site first> Tools> Internet options> Security> tick the ‘Trusted’ icon> Sites> Add> ok> out
    Note this setting may permit undesirable ‘Active scripting’ or other server based action: use with caution, especially if you have ‘Active content’ allowed.
    Again, supplemental blockers, in browsers mainly, may have to be muted, or ‘site allowed’.

    IE 8:
    Go to the site needing approval & copy the URL from address bar, then:
    Tools> Internet Options> Privacy> Sites> paste that URL into top line> Allow> OK> OK.
    The “Pop-up Blocker” may also need to be modified to accommodate the site.
    Tools> Internet Options> Pop up blocker heading> Settings> again, paste that URL into the slot> Close> OK.

    General cookie settings should be:
    Tools> Internet Options> Privacy> Advanced: tick “Override…”; Allow 1st party cookies; Allow session Cookies & BLOCK 3rd Party cookies> OK> OK.
