SYMPTOMS

Cookies may or may not have been saved on your computer.
CAUSE
This behavior can occur if you use the Back command to navigate back from a Web site on which cookies were restricted to a previously visited "file://" resource (for example, "C:\" or "\\server\share") or to an XML file, and then back to previously visited Web sites on which cookies may or may not have been restricted.
RESOLUTION
To work around this issue, quit and restart Internet Explorer.
