Sometimes, Titia, cookies do indeed get crooked. What you've been trying are all good attempts, but they're often not enough to straighten out a crooked cookie. When push comes to shove, the only reliable method is to delete your cookies and start out with some fresh ones. Somewhere in your browser there will be a setting to do exactly that. If you can find it, try deleting all your cookies for piptalk.com. If you can't find it in your browser's menu items, tell us which browser you're using and maybe someone here can help you find the 'Delete Cookies' function.
(If you look at the menu in your browser you should see one labeled "Help." Click on that and one of the options should start with the word "About . . ." Click on that and it will tell you what browser and version number you have. Post that info here.)
