There just isn't any point in notifying users of tracking cookies during a scan.  By default, SEP just automatically deletes them and then tells the user about them.  What good is this?  Even if I could create exceptions for specific cookies, notifications would still be pointless.  In a corporate environment, the notifications just scare and confuse the average user.

I agree with this.

Also there should be the ability to send notifications for all risks except for tracking cookies, there is no need to send notifications for something that is not actionable.

I have to see these notifications every time there is a scan.  Gets old after a while.  Symantec, please give us an option to disable tracking cookie notifications.

This appears to be a valid solution especially for cookies when user's go to windows update.
