19.  What are "cookies"??

Cookies are small text files that Web sites leave behind on your hard drive.  These files usually contain information about you, such as your log-in name or password for a particular site. At e-stores, cookies are often used to keep track of such things as your shipping address, site purchases and the items in your shopping cart. In truth, cookies are quite useful. It is recommended that you leave them alone, but you can toss your cookies from your hard drive.
Use the Find feature in windows to locate the cookies folder on your C: drive, then drag it into the recycle bin to delete it.

15. The 5 Most Common Error Messages
Error Messages: Copy word for word any error messages you might recieve before calling for assistance.
"401 Cannot find a Site/URL/Address" - Possibly a mistyped address or the site has moved or shut down.
"404 Not Found" or "404 Access Denied" - The Web page doesn't exist anymore. Try running a search for the site's name on Yahoo! and see what comes up-the page may have just moved.
"403 Forbidden" - The site hasn't been set with "read permissions." You can't view the site because the person who maintains the page doesn't want you reading it. Like death and taxes, there is little you can do about it.
"Network connection refused by the server" - Too many users are trying to access the same page. If you receive this message at your favorite Web site, try it again in a few minutes or during the off-hours.
"Unable to locate the server. The server does not have a DNS entry" - DNS (Domain Name System or Server) is the means used to look up the Net address for the name you entered. Either the site does not exist or your connection to your ISP is faulty. Try a site that you know has a DNS entry (such as www.yil.com). If you still get a DNS error, there is probably something wrong with your ISP's connection to the Internet. You also should try emtying your cache, just in case.
"The program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down" - Otherwise known as a GPF (Genreal Protection Fault), it just means that your computer got confused. Try emtying your cache or restarting your browser.

12. Tip of the Week--Use HELP in Search Engines
Click on SEARCH WEB button on UDATAnet Home Page
Click on Search Engine you want to use.
Click on the HELP button for tips on using each Search Engine.
Each engine uses different syntax ("",-) when setting up a search.

11. Tip of the Week--FINDing Text
Edit Menu's Find command or Find Button enables you to search for text on the current Web page. It works like the Find commands in word processors. You can specify the text you want to find, case sensitivity and direction to search.
This is particularly useful if you want to find where on a page an e-mail address appears (you simply search for the @ character).

10. Tip of the Week--BACK & FORWARD BUTTONS
Don't want to bother clicking the Back and Forward buttons? Use the Alt key - Left Arrow and Alt key - Right Arrow keys instead.

9. Tip of the Week--LIST OF VISITED SITES
Want to know what sites you've been to... as opposed to every page? At the right of the white URL display area of your browser screen labeled "Location" , click on the arrow at the right-hand side of the box and you get a list of the sites you've most recently visited.

8. Tip of the Week---DOWNLOADING TIP
**When downloading, the site closest to you isn't necessarily the fastest. Go with the less-trafficked site at the time you are downloading. When it is 8 pm in Miami, people are still at work in San Jose. A West Coast site might have fewer visitors and downloading will be faster.
