  Hijack this is interesting. I saw the same thing in sysinternals. It looks like it shows BHOs but not Add-On. This whole search started when Windows Update faile saying a add-on stopped it from working. Thanks Microsoft. You know which add-on it was why don't you tell me which on? Anyway it looks like IE add-ons might be yet another place where malware can infect you?

   I use Superantispyware. Looked and looked. I saw no place where you could remove existing BHOs or startup entries. Ami I looking in the wrong place?

I always use hijackthis
But you can also use Internet Explorer`s owen "Manager addon`s"
Its in the tools menu.

You could also try to seach for spyware with hitman pro ( http://www.surfright.nl/en/ )
It sends objects to the cloud to do a multi vendor virus scan.

If you scan the PC it should detect installed BHO and prevent when a new one try to install.

Also I used this one in the past
