When you say 'it wont recognise my login' do you mean you are actually putting in a usename and password? or you are expecting it to remember your logon credentials even from a different computer?

I dont know how this site is setup, but i have a funny feeling that your computer is disabling something. Perhaps javascript or something like that.

i am typing in username and password in the fields and then hit enter, page reloads but i'm not logged in

i am used to internet explorer and prefer not to change if i dont have to

I don't use IE9, but try this...

1. Navigate to aussiehomebrewer
2. When you're on the page, use the IE menu to enable Compatibility View:

Tools > Compatibility View

It might allow IE9 to render the webpage correctly?

Ok, if you want to get rid of compatibility view for that page, go to Tools > Compatibility View Settings and remove the entry for aussiehomebrewer.com.

Now check if it's in the 'trusted sites' for IE. Trusted sites is a pretty broken feature of IE, so you don't want it to be in there.

- Tools > Internet options
- 'Security' tab
- Trusted Sites, click on the 'Sites' button
- if aussiehomebrewer.com is in there, remove it

Also try...

Tools > InPrivate Browsing

Don't know if that would make a difference or not..

i would download and try it with google chrome anyway. even though you dont want to use it, just to eliminate whether or not it is a browser issue. If it fails in chrome, then it will definitely be some computer settings (likely security)

Failing that, its a far better browser and you should use it anyway.

Kind of looks like some ad blocking feature or readability feature in your new computer's IE9 that is blocking it. That's he guess anyway.

If you'd never used another browser, you'd probably be just fine with chrome anyway. They're all very similar to use these days. Behind the scenes is different I suppose.

Quite often branded PC's (HP, Dell, etc) will come preinstalled with a bunch of unecessary shit aka bloatware

Maybe have a look at what add ons are enabled in your IE9 browser itself

Within the browser window
Tools (or alt+x)
click on "Manage add ons"

Personally I stopped using IE after finding Chrome suited the bulk of my needs and my favorites etc followed me around based on my google account, but, that's what suits me.
