    how to remove built-in alexa?

    ......spyware. Anyone know how?

    I was nice to remove the Alexa spyware for you. Alexa is spyware that Windows
    XP ships out with. How nice of them. Alexa tracks your browsing habbits. I
    thought spyware only came with crappy games and programs? Guess I was wrong.

    Delete the page \%windir%\web\related.htm
    or
    delete the registry key
    [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Extensions\{c95fe080-8f5d-11d2-a20b-00aa003c157a]

    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?
