Try adding another site today, pick any site you like, copy the url into the "Address of Website" box and click on Block, it should immediately appear in the list box below. After a reboot or two see if it is still there.
I probably wasn't clear enough in my initial description of what I am doing. What you described in your second paragraph is
one way of blocking cookies from a site.
Another way, which is what I've been using, is to go to Tools > Internet Options > Privacy > Advanced, and then click on the box that says "Override Automatic Cookie Handling" and set the radio buttons for First Party Cookies to "Prompt" and for Third Party Cookies to "block."
When you do this, and you go to a site you have not been to since you made these settings, IE will put up a prompt box that asks you if you want to Block or Allow cookies from that site going forward. If you click "Block," you'll never see the prompt box again for that site, and it is my understanding that IE will block attempts by that site in the future to put cookies on your computer.
Even though these settings should block all third party cookies, I find that I get prompted occasionally not only for the site I am going to, but also for some third parties, which for which I click "Block."
When you block using this method, the site you blocked does not show up in the list that you referred-to. My question is how to find the "other"
list that is keeping track of sites I've blocked using this prompt method.
