Hi Jake33, and welcome to the forum

Cookies are "no big deal" indeed as you said - they are harmless and never represent threats.

It is recommended to clean temporary file locations and cookies before the scan.

You don't need to use any security Software in order to quarantine/delete those

Please read below threads from our old forum

http://forum.emsisoft.com/Default.aspx?g=posts&t=6306

and the subsequent link http://forum.emsisoft.com/Default.aspx?g=posts&t=5058

At the same time, you may provide info about the cookies that a2 was not able to remove.

Thing is that some web-aware applications can place those into the locations that are different from the default locations

Those are not threats by any means too, but we may be just curious what kind of cookies cannot be removed

My regards

Jake33,

That's a bit strange.

I don't see anything spacial about those cookies and I cannot tell at the moment why those in particular could not be removed by a2.

... unless you ignored the message from a2 and had the session of Firefox active at that time

I may ask the developers whether there could be other reasons

nothing to worry about then?

Not at all. As it was pointed above you should never worry about cookies.

My regards

P.S. I edited your reply. I left whole inline report this time, though
