Probably due to SB as it works differently - it blocks certain things before they can even get onto your machine. You should really be asking them however: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/index.php scroll down to Official Javacool Software Forum.
That said, you might want to question why so many items are appearing in that section to begin with. I think in the last 5 years I've only seen 1 item in mine.
Just be very careful what you download, that's all.
I wasn't sure what you're suggesting with regard your comment that I should be questioning why so many items are showing up in the Quarantined PUP's area. Do you think I need to start a new discussion item on this? Given what you indicated...i.e. that you've only had perhaps 1 pup show up in that quarantine area in 5 years...makes me wonder if there is something wrong with the settings in my McAfee Security Center.
I've had the McAfee AV (that's provided free by Cox Communications [my ISP]), for a little over 3 years now. It's just been within the past year or so that I'd actually been regularly going in to look at those quarantined pup's. Just about all of them are listed as some type of cookie, with names such as, "Tribalfusion", "Admnt", etc. When I've clicked on it to go to McAfee's site to see what the PUP actually is, does, etc...nearly every time, the info there just says it's a cookie, gives the date it was first discovered, and that it's essentially harmless, etc.
Also, your last item...about being careful what I download...aside from something like downloading a computer game or some kind of software application...what other things are considered "downloads?" For example, I am subscribed to get regular updates from quite a few federal government websites like the CPSC, FDA, CDC, etc. In the email updates (which I generally receive at least 8 or more per day of), there are frequently links to their respective sites containng detailed info, such as, on a particular product recall or food safety issue. Are these considered downloads?
In addition, a number of them will also have in them some "Flickr" images of the products involved. (Have no idea just what Flickr is).
Thanks very much for any enlightenment!

I was just saying be careful, that's all.
Flickr is a photo sharing service I believe, I've never used it so don't know much about it.
Thanks once again Peter!
