OK, just to make sure I am understanding you correctly, let me go over this one last time.

You are saying that the cookies, up until recently, that were being quarantined in AntiVirus Plus under Navigation\Quarantined And Trusted Items\Quarantined Potentially Unwanted Programs, were not really dangerous tracking cookies, so McAfee decided to stop quarantining them, correct? 

I sure hope McAfee is right about that.

So, the fact I'm not seeing cookies being quarantined, that previously were, is by design, and not because of any problem, or loss of functionality, correct?

I clean out my cookies every time I close Internet Explorer, so it probably isn't that big of an issue for me anyway.  But, it still irks me if some cookie is tracking information about me.  If I can have McAfee quarantine them, then so much the better, but if that feature has been removed, I guess there's not much I can do about it.

It's by design.    Tracking cookies store only a very limited amount of information...basically to assist in signing into websites by remembering your user name for example.

I know if I had to sign in here very time I visit I wouldn't bother after a while as it would be too time consuming.
