Browser cookies are enabled - test


I am trying to figure out how to test whether my browser cookies are enabled.
I used the code from the following page

Basically, it tells me to create a cookie and test the cookie from another page. However, in IE 6.0, if I set my privacy setting to a High level so as to block all cookies, the code always returns that the cookies are enabled.

The code is

Sub Page_Load(
If Not Page.IsPostBack The
If Request.QueryString("AcceptsCookies") Is Nothing The
Response.Cookies("TestCookie").Value = "ok
Response.Cookies("TestCookie").Expires =
Response.Redirect("TestForCookies.aspx?redirect=" &
labelAcceptsCookies.Text = "Accept cookies = " &
End I
End I
End Su

In another page: To test the cookies

Sub Page_Load(
Dim redirect As String = Request.QueryString("redirect"
Dim acceptsCookies As Strin
' Was the cookie accepted
If Request.Cookies("TestCookie") Is Nothing The
' No cookie, so it must not have been accepte
acceptsCookies =
acceptsCookies =
' Delete test cooki
Response.Cookies("TestCookie").Expires =
End I
Response.Redirect(redirect & "?AcceptsCookies=" & acceptsCookies,
End Su

IE keeps returning acceptsCookies = 1 all the time. When I test the same using Netscape / Mozilla, I get the expected result. So the code works correctly, however not on IE 6.0. Why

What should I do to enhance the same and give me the correct results? I have set Security to be Highest in Internet, Local Internet, Trusted Sites, Restricted Sites zones and set the Privacy to High to block all cookies.

Any help is appreciated
