Hello jeffster1, According to the Alexa website, all versions of Alexa can be uninstalled. Researchers are not allowed to do tasks such as removing files, or remotely access your computer. This is simply to keep your computer healthy, and to protect us from the damages that are always possible. With that said, I can definitely show you how to do it. Due to copyright restrictions, I can not copy the whole set of instructions. I will simply lead you directly to the information you need ;-) Alexa ToolBar Uninstall with instructions "All versions of the Alexa Toolbar have an uninstall feature. It will be located in different places, depending on which version you have installed." http://pages.alexa.com/exec/faqsidos/help/index.html?index=7 You'll note that there is also an alternative method to remove this program, that you may find easier. It doesn't require you to know which version you are running, but is for Internet Explorer only. Here is the link for your convenience : Alexa Uninstall "The following process will uninstall Alexa Toolbars 3, 4, 5, or 6 from Internet Explorer." http://pages.alexa.com/exec/faqsidos/help/index.html?index=38 To assist with this answer I went directly to the Alexa website, and searched for instructions on how to remove the toolbar : Alexa http://www.alexa.com This information should be what you needed. Should you need more resources, or something simply does not work, ask for clarification. I will do all I can to help you get the answer you need. Thanks for the great question! SgtCory

jeffster, As I am naturally distrustful of any Adware / Spyware / Scumware company, rather than take Alexa's word for *anything*, I chose to remove it with Spybot Search & Destroy. You can download this WONDERFUL program for FREE (you may make a donation to help support the author for his periodic updates if you wish) at: http://security.kolla.de/index.php?lang=en&page=download While you're at it, if you don't already have it, I encourage you to download another free scumware-busting program, Lavasoft's AdAware: http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download The two programs are not identical, and they complement each other well for protection. I and numerous other Researchers use both to keep our systems clean. *NOTE* Both programs, when you run them, have a "Check for Updates" feature. Be sure to do this periodically, as the scumware companies are constantly coming up with new ways to invade your privacy, and you may need the most current version of Spybot S&D or AdAware to get rid of the newer pests.
