I feel stupid; I've been trying to conquer this problem but I can't.

My problem is that it gives me an error like below:

Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A000D)
Type mismatch: '[string: ""]'
/portal/Default.asp, line 9

The code is...<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">code/font><HR><pre>

You haven't specified any sections to show! If you'd like, you can set the sections at the &lt;a href="/portal/preferences.asp"&gt;preferences page&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;%End If%&gt;
&lt;!-- #include virtual="/res/inc/apbot.asp" --&gt;[/code]

The cookies are for sure defined, and the Typename() of the variables sNews, sMisc, etc, show up as a string. But when I try to compare them to a string it gives me an error. Does anyone know what's wrong? I simply can't see what's wrong!

P.S. I know some of the code isn't optimized but this _is_ production code (my fav excuse)
