    Hello everyone.
    I downloaded Spywareblaster 3.1 yeaterday and all the protection devices are enabled,as well as,current updates.When I did a scan for adware just a minute ago,Ad-Aware found two tracking cookies.
    They were low risk tracking cookies,so I'm not too worried.My question is should Spywareblaster have blocked those cookies?

    I'm just a little perplexed. o_O
    I'm sure it's no big deal.

    Thank you for your help.

    hey

    u should post the sites where u picked up the cookies, so javacool can add those sites 2 restricted sites if they are bad

    Javacool updates spyware blaster's detection database about once a week as he gets new info

    hope this helps :D

    I see.
    These are cookies not listed in the database?

    No problem.The next time I find tracking cookies I'll copy and post the info.

    Thanks for you help.

    Hi, did you do an Ad-Aware scan prior to downloading SpywareBlaster? If not, it is possible that the tracking cookies were already in your computer at the time of your SB download.

    Hi Peaches4u.
    Yes,I did an Ad-Aware and Spybot scan right before I downloaded Spywareblaster.I also do those scans-along with a virus scan- everyday when I finish the days computing(sometimes if I'm bored I'll run two scans in a day).

    Thanks for your reply.

    Where does one post tracking cookies to that are not covered in the current Spywareblaster database? I can find no address for these submissions on the JavaCool site. Thanks.
