Hi

Just downloaded Lavasofts Adware V5.7 and it picks up an Alexa extention to MS IE6, some kind of sneaky tracking i think. I have not installed the Alexa toolbar !!.

What exactly doe this do, anyone know.

If i get rid of it will my XP and IE6 disappear int cyberspace.

Regards

David

I just let Ad-Aware get rid of the entries and everything seems to work fine (you'll probably lose the Alexa toolbar, but if you never use it, no matter). I haven't had any problems.

Could anyone tell us what is Alexa Toolbar ?

I also installed and run the latest version of AD-aware, and yes it also removed the Alexa spies...

Hi

Thanks for your inputs.

Just a few observations.

The Alexa toolbar as described on their website is ok if you want it and you want your surfing monitored, in fact the website is very straight and upfront about this, just read their PRIVACY POLICY. I have no objection to this as long as the individual wants this.

As i have never installed the thing (Alexa Toolbar....) i can only assume Microsoft has partnered with this company and sneaked it into XP or IE6 to gain info.

THIS I DO OBJECT TO

Any further info would be appreciated

Regards

David

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
