I just run Spybot to check my XP machine and has detected that Internet Explorer has "Alexa Related and DSO Exploit" spywares.

Are they really spywares and save to delete?

Yes, both are safe to remove :-)

There should be some help over the right-side that tells you about the spyware if you select its name... Well, that's in 1.3 Beta's, I think 1.2 is similar (Might have to right-click on the Spyware to get help with it).

Hope this helps


Chill.

After removing them, my IE 'hangs' every now and then. Have restored them and IE is working fine.

Comments from those who have removed those two items, please.

Cheers

Just remove "DSO Exploit" as it is a possible Security issuge then see if IE hangs.

If it does then reinstall IE
