I've been complaining about the same matter of not finding any tracking cookies when I know they are there. It seems Lavasoft is ignoring this problem, as I've repeatedly brought this up previously. Nothing seems to being done to correct this. Wake up LS!

Update from Lavasoft:

Hooray! Tracking cookies problem fixed in software update 8.2.6. Thank you Lavasoft. Ad-Aware just detected 262 tracking cookies after a long absence.

News: 8.2.6 Update to Ad-Aware
Software update 8.2.6 was released today. June 29, 2010

It includes:

A fix for a bug affecting detection of cookies
When scanning for cookies, the bug caused the cookie scanner to stop before looking through all locations where cookies are stored. The bug affected only cookie detection, and it only occurred on some systems.
