Error – To allow this website to provide information personalized for you, will youallow it to put a small file (called a cookie) on your computer?”

Problem -> Whenever we use powershell  “Invoke-WebRequest” command to access website with cookies then its gives warning as below:

powershell> Invoke-WebRequest http://microsoft.com

Warning:
“To Allow this website to provide information personalized for you, will you allow it to put a small file (cookie) on your computer?”

Solution ->

Solution 1 – Windows 8.1 there was a workaround. If you went into: Control Panel > Internet Options > Privacy, there was a slider you could turn all the way down to allow ALL cookies.

Solution 2 – you can use “-UseBasicParsing” in “Invoke-WebRequest” command in case you dont want to use advance options like “ParsedHtml.getElementsByTagName ”

Invoke-WebRequest http://microsoft.com -UseBasicParsing

 

Solution 3 – one more workaround as below:

open powershell with “run as administrator” and run below command to add reg key:

reg add “HKCUSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionInternet SettingsZones3” /t REG_DWORD /v 1A10 /f /d 0

Then close your PowerShell session, re-open it, and try.
