Setting cookies on shouldn't cause any problems, providing you visit nice wholesome sites

It might be best to set cookies on to the medium/low settings (Tools, Internet Options, Privacy in IE) - that way you'll still have some protection.

Ebay will use cookies to remember who you are and what you are bidding on and stuff like that(relatively harmless). But some other sites if you allow cookies may give you spyware wich is why you want to keep security at about medium.
