This tip came about from the following post:

I know there has been a lot of discussion about Alexa being spyware but I am now totally convinced it is not. So this is for people who want to use the 'Related" button on their toolbar.

If you do an IE Repair, like I did, the Related button will bring up a German based Goggle window instead of the original Alexia one. To change it to the original go to this link:

This may be only related to IE6 SP1, as this is what I am using. Post back if this is related to a lower version of IE.

Thanks, if appropriate, go to Tony for helping me get my proverbial "Thinking Cap" on.

Alexa has some spyware, and some not spyware.
If spybot s & d returns "Alexa Related" it is not spyware. Just Alexa is spyware.
