> I have scanned my system with Spy Sweeper, Ad-Aware SE Personal,
Spybot Search and Destroy, and PestBlock.
> Only PestBlock shows Alexa toolbar in the registry.
> That registry location "points" to three system files, which i have
replaced with clean files from my win OS CD, and *still* PestBlock gives
the exact same complaint.
> Since none of the other checkers show any hint of Alexa, i do not
want to "vote" with $25 to get their full version, until i know what is
wrong: their Alexa toolbar insistance, or all the other checkers.
> Any suggestions for other free checkers?
> Any comments as to the accuracy of PestBlock?
I started with a brand new hard drive, installed Win98Se and then
PestBlock, with NO modems, cables or other connctions to the internet or
It reports that the Alexa Toolbar is present, just like in my
previous running system.
Hell, it reports that even with all three of those system files absent!

Alexa is something from Microsoft as part of IE and is reported by anti spyware
but is not a real threat it doesn't hurt if its deleted and it does no harm if
