This Microsoft Tuesday had an IE patch # KB2559049 which change the way cookies used to be read to an alpha-numeric txt. ie, CDRV54HG txt. BTW it only affect cookies in IE.
Is CCleaner removing them when running CCleaner ? According to Corrine (MVP Security Garden) they are not. I ran my own test and CCleaner removed some, left some:

Please, let us know which cookies you haven't been able to clean after installing KB2559049 (Internet Explorer 9.0.2 Update).

Suites can still recognize gibberish spyware/tracking cookies as such and deal with them accordingly. Googling a named cookie certainly reveals which are spyware/tracking cookies but when I Google the new gibberish idents, I consistently get 'no match found'. Would not surprise me in the least to find that MS is working in concert with cookie-planting marketing and advertising companies as MS used some spyware/tracking cookies itself recognizable by use of 'ad' or 'market(ing)' as part of the MS cookie name. Deviance thy name is Microsoft!
