    Stupid question and I know you say that nothing has changed but has anyone or something managed to dump the cookie path for your site?

    Had similar problems on here and on phpBB2 when an errant configuration setting balked the whole thing.

    Anti-spyware perhaps?

    Could be that something is stripping the cookies that way?

    ok, I tried using the version I have at another domain (for testing purposes) and this works fine, logs in and no cookie error. Now I am really confused, it has to be something do to with settings, but again I I have compared and nothing is different or change, starting to pull out whats left of my hair now.

    AARRGGGHHH!

    Me' thinks this is one of those... look away and then look back at the machine sharply to see if there's gremlins dancing on the keyboard.

    Beyond that I'd also look to see if stupid stuff like spaces, full stops, or "looks-like" characters eg: I->l->1, etc... may be involved..

    Tbh though you're likely to find this is going to be something you come back Monday and find, "Hey it's working"..
