When I run Superantispyware for malware the only thing it comes up with is Ad-aware tracking cookie PCA Website!

Either you have set it (or it is set) to ignore all others or the only site you visit is PCA.

If it causes you concern enter the cookie to the ignore list.

Neither is the case, just wondered if this is a false positive with malwarebytes, not had problem with other sites?

Sorry not malwarebytes but antispyware.

I use several anti-spyware programs and Spybot S&D and Spyware Terminator pick up cookies including PCA. Additionally, Ccleaner and similar automatically remove them unless in the ignore list.

I wouldn't consider any cookie not in an ignore list being highlighted as a false positive. They are normally relatively benign, certainly compared to the true target of anti-malware software, and programmers probably ignore them.
