Avast suggested I remove the idm browser add-on because of its low reputation rating, which I did. That operation alone eliminated most of the files from the installation folder. But there was one leftover .dll file that wouldn't disappear. I even tried to shred it with GlaryUtilities. Process monitor said it was locked by 4 different processes. mbam, iexplorer, everything and explorer. I killed all except explorer, allowing the offending.dll deletion. Subsequently, I conducted a search of the registry(maintaining a back up) for all entries relating to internet download manager and deleted them. I no longer see the program on the system. SUCCESS!
all web pages slow load in IE8

That's good! You did not use SearchEverthing?? It's a great program, especially when your removing programs you don't want!
I use regedit F3 a lot, but don't recommend it to members. So are your problems all solved for now??

How do you use Search Everything to uninstall software? I've installed it on XP but didn't notice it's removal features. Where do I find it?

You don't use it to uninstall software. You use it to uninstall files and folders left over after using Revo uninstaller.
Here's a example. I typed CCleaner in top top search bar. Search Everything found all the files. You just left click and delete. Keeps your PC cleaned up.
