I had to remove some spyware that got onto my machine recently and
ever since, IE takes like 15 to 20 seconds to open every time I open a
new browser. Is there any way I can find what it's doing? I imagine
its trying to load some things that aren't htere any more? If so,
where can I find the load list so I can try and remove things that
dno't belong?

We cannot be sure that you have actually removed the spyware in question -
we have no names, and no information about what products were used to remove
said spyware.

Please work through the advice at the URL below to ensure that your system
is properly cleaned:

sorry, I think I need to be more specific. What REGISTRY keys or ini
files or such can I look at to see all the third party tools that IE
is loading? I'm not looking for anything automated here. I just want
to see them.
