What IE plugins loaded?

Because of some problems in IE 6.0 SP1 (freezing of IE when loading a new page) we disabled the option "Enable 3rd party Browser Extensions", this solved that problem. I'm not sure of the exact syntax, since this is a Dutch IE and Win2k.

Now I wonder what 3rd party extensions (as I understand they mean what plug-ins) are loaded?
I can guess a bit from what 've installed, but how do I find out a list of what pug-ins for IE are actually installed?

Of course I don't mean to search in "Installed Software" in the Control Panel.

Hi NicoLaan,

You're looking for the browser helper objects (BHO's) I guess.
This is a tool to view them all, and with most it even gives a description of what it does:

I can find 3 BHO's, disabled all 3 and enabled the Browser Extensions option in IE, but the problem remains.
So I believe this program either gives an incomplete list or it's not what I need.

Hmm, my colleague found the solution in the end.

It WAS related to 1 of the BHO's in the list, so your anser was correct.
Only the disable function in it doesn't work perfect I guess.

It's the google toolbar that caused the freezing in IE, the "Page Rank" functionality.
When disabled it all works perfectly!

Thanks for the quick help, Nico
