    Does using using Skype have any affect on my connection whether I have cookies on or off?

    I disabled the cookie protection in my security suite and left everything in the tools/internet options/privacy on default settings and also checked in General setting to delete all this is on exit. Then under the new listing under tools for Delete Browsing History, I checked the first 4 items and it works like a charm now. The Sec. Suite acted as a double firewall and it is handled in the tools heading.
