    Anyone know why MS Fixit finds a ton of stuff loaded with IE as addons but has no way of getting rid of it?

    It's probably because you can't normally remove IE add-ons, but it can be done if you know how. I have IE 8, so I can speak for it, but nothing newer.

    Go to Tools>Manage Add-ons. Change "Currently loaded add-ons" to "All add-ons." Right-click an add-on you want to remove and select "More Information." There you'll see a Remove button but in all likelihood it'll be unavailable. If so, select the Copy button and paste the contents to a new text document. Copy the "Class ID," it'll be something like {A66AA08A-9BF0-4E87-99E6-6972731D6B99}. Now in the registry, search for and delete every instance of of "{A66AA08A-9BF0-4E87-99E6-6972731D6B99}" (I use that as an example only).

    There may be another way, but that's the only way I've found to do it.

    Resetting IE removes add-ons if I recall.

    I looked at the manage addons before running fixit and still saw none of the ones fixit found after running fixit. also looked in add remove.

    and so i am not sure what the rsesults mean. Do they mean still running or because of the green check mark, fixed? could someone else please give this a try and let me know?\\
    sorry but the green check marks didn't show in my copy and paste job.
    Thanks

    controler, just to be sure, in Manage Add-ons you changed "Currently loaded add-ons" to "All add-ons?" If not there could be a whole slew of add-ons you're not seeing.

    Everything I see in your list are toolbars and search engines. MS Fixit could be detecting remnants that were left behind in your registry when they were uninstalled. I'd analyze your registry with something like CCleaner and see if it detects any of them. It may not find 'em all but if it does find some you could go ahead and remove them and then try Fixit again.

    If you're positive they're not in the IE add-on manager or your list of installed programs I'm quite sure they're just old registry keys and aren't really anything to worry about.
