To verify that cookies are accepted, you'll need to check your internet browser. Below are a couple examples of how to do so in popular browsers:
In Internet Explorer, go to the Tools menu and choose Internet Options. Under the Privacy tab, a medium setting should be acceptable for Windows XP, 7, or 8. In Safari, go to the Safari menu and choose Preferences. Under the Privacy tab, the "Block cookies and other website data" area must be set to the "From third parties and advertisers" option.
If you are running some type of pop-up blocking software on your computer this may be the cause of your problems. Make sure that this software is not configured in such a way as to block all pop-ups. There is usually some setting that will allow pop-ups when you initiate them by clicking on a link.
Caching servers and Content Filters
Are you located in a network that employs a caching server or Content Filtering? If so, that server should be set to NOT cache the tutorials from Atomic Training. If your organization uses content filters and you experience problems with tutorials playing it may be necessary to add Atomic Training URL’s to your filter’s white list. Please contact your IT department for details—a list of URL’s is available from atomic training by contacting us at email@example.com
Slow access or access that fails after your first tutorial

- In the same Internet Options area click on the Security Tab - then click on Internet and Custom Level. In there select "low" in the Reset To: box. Click Apply and OK. Close out IE - re-open and test.
- In the Internet Options area - under the ‘Advanced’ tab - put a Check in the "Use HTTP1.1 through proxy connections." line. (it’s about half way down) Close out - re-open - test.
