Look at the sentence closely:

If criminal investigators can convince the court thats that the Web site involved is part of the crime scene and therefore must not be tampered with, then the courts would have to order the site offline, because _____________.

... the courts would have to order the site offline, because _____________.

The question is: why can the webiste not continue to be online?

D. any additional use of the Web site could constitute tampering

Correct. If the website is online, then it would constitute tampering. Hence it needs to go offline. Makes sense.

E. tampering with crime scenes interferes with due process of law

But it doesn't tell us that staying online causes tampering. We are already given that the crime scene must not be tampered with. Now we need a reason for why the website must go offline. That reason is given by option (D) only.

Whats wrong with B? If the privacy policies are insufficient to protect the users, they need to be changed and hence, untill it is changed, we are taking the site down?

Option (B) is not logical.

B. the privacy practices of the Web site involved would have been shown to be insufficient to protect its subscribers

Because one subscriber used information obtained from the site to commit a crime against another subscriber does not mean that the privacy practices of the Web site are insufficient. It could be a case in which someone hacked the website or lured someone into giving their information through the website etc.
Also, it doesn't work with the rest of the sentence "If criminal investigators can convince the court thats that the Web site involved is part of the crime scene and therefore must not be tampered with"
The website is a crime scene, not an accessory to the crime. The crime scene must not be tampered with, that is why the website needs to be shut down and keeping it up constitutes tampering.
