    K Alexa got into my registry yesterday. Ad aware found it. Is this variant spyware or what ?

    The general consensus is that K Alexa is nothing to worry about if you're talking about the single registry key that Internet Explorer itself places in the registry. If Ad-Aware showed something like this...

    [ ] K Alexa - \software\microsoft\internet explorer\extensions\{c95feo...

    Then that is just a simple registry key that is loaded whenever you install, upgrade or repair Internet Explorer. You can leave it or remove it without issue.

    Take a look at this thread, starting at reply #5, for more information on this:
