I installed Ad-aware 6 yesterday - a new update is available today.

Yesterday 136 objects were removed - today 13 new objects were found.

Of the 13 new objects found I recognised 2 from yesterday, so I put them on the ignore list as they were low risk anyway. One of them is:

Alexa RegKey Data Miner HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE:SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Extensions

Can anyone tell me what this is?

of Internet Explorer and it is okay to delete.

JoeC is correct - it's Bill spying on you!

Templar1961, Many thanks.

I thought I deleted it yesterday?

Does it restore itself?

Templar1961 you said "I put them on the ignore list as they were low risk anyway. One of them is:

Alexa RegKey Data Miner HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE:SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Extensions "

That's why it's still there.

I put them on the ignore list today - thinking that I had removed them yesterday - on the basis that if they were going to restore themselves why bother to continually delete them?

Ran AdAware 5.83 yesterday - 2 objects found.

Installed AdAware 6 last night - 139 objects found.

Is it safe to remove anything Adaware picks up?

Can't shift this one?

STEVE71163 - yes. Not so with Spybot - with the latter just go with what it ticks by default.
