Sometime ago, possibly Mike at Spywareinfo, wrote the below statement. I wondered - and I hope I have this posted in correct area - if anyone knows if current AdAwarePlus still goes bonkers over this item? It labels it as a data mining tool; hope this is a simple query and not viewed as request for "log analysis," folks Many thanks, SG1 (Pat) "As cool as the new release is, there does seem to be a glitch. By now everyone knows that Internet Explorer installs Alexa spyware right? Well, actually it doesn't. Lavasoft's Ad-aware targets a registry key which it erroneously labels as an Alexa component. That key is what lets Internet Explorer have a related sites sidebar. This sidebar opens a file installed on your machine at c:\windows\web\related.htm."
