    When I get to my account, on the left Security Info is highlighted and on the right I my info , but under trusted PC it reads ” We don’t have the info we need to add this as a trusted PC. Make sure that you have enabled cookies in your browser, close it and then open your browser again. ” I have tried this numerous times with no success. Can someone give me step by step instructions.

    Apparently not too bright.
