I removed spybot search and destroy from the add/remove programs. (or thought I did) It is no longer listed in the add/remove programs, however when I start up my computer it still comes on and still loads before I can do anything else on my computer. I want to remove all of it from my computer, but how?

The 1st best step is to reinstall it and try to uninstall again.
If that doesn't help, we'll go from there.

ok, I tried to reinstall spybot however as it was almost finishing loading up popped C/program file search/destroy plugins/TCPIP address. Delete file failed code 5 access denied. Could someone please explain that?

That error was a bug in earlier versions of Spybot. See here.

I have not used Spybot in years so unless someone else knows, I would ask Spybot S&D Support.
