    I can hear the wailing and gnashing of (teachers') teeth already:

    "Why do I have to pay? I'm a teacher - it's for the children!"

    Just found this thread from a Google.

    Having trouble with this toolbar- a couple of anti-spyware programs don't seem to like it. Is there anything nasty lurking within this toolbar?

    Well, its generating cash for them so its either collecting browsing habits and selling them on or something along those lines.

    Anyone know anything more specific as our staff love the site and I dont like the toolbar one bit.

    I've been lucky enough to avoid the toolbar by pointing out that stability has been questionable at best.

    You've reminded me that I need to contact Sparklebox and request the additional content on the basis of getting access by paying a small fee. (adds to, to-do list)

    Lisa8 : go check out the regional forums on why Sparklebox has been banned and why you would probably not want to use it.
