A "browser" is just the program you run to browse the Internet. You're probably using Internet Explorer, or Firefox, or Google Chrome. A "cookie" is just a small file that some web sites store on your computer, so they know who you are and what kind of settings you have. Your problem may be that you have more than one browser window open. In this case, just close all your applications and you'll be fine.

Hi steve when you said close all applications, do you mean the applications on the right hand side at the bottom of the laptop, as that would clear address book dvd player itunes ect...or do i go on google or yahoo and just type in close applications.or maybe l should go to apple shop so someone can do it... i'm getting confused now.

Close your browsers. If you're on a Mac, then that would likely be Safari.
