    Aloha,
    I just scanned my computer using Spybot and it came up with this showing a red exclamation mark:
    1)Alexa Related
    2)Myway.My bar
    Would it be ok to remove these items??

    Mahalo,

    Yep get rid of them. Anything marked in red can go. Spybot makes a backup of everything deleted so if you make a mistake you can always restore it. :)

    Delete everything in red and leave the green entries alone.

    Make sure to check for new updates about once a month.
