xDiGx,
Your machine appears to be free of malware
I don't know what could be causing any startup delays, if you still see them.
There are excellent help sites for that kind of problem, if it continues:
Good System/Hardware Help Forums
GeekstoGo here: http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/Windows-XP-2000-2003-NT-f5.html
or

or

All may require you to register free before posting for help.

Let's proceed to cleanup the leftovers.
I would keep Malwarebytes' Anti-malware. You can update it and use it to scan every week or so. You won't need any other AntiSpyware program. (there are a lot of fakes out there)

Please double-click OTMoveIt2.exe to run it.
Click on the Cleanup! button and exit.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Reset System Restore Points
  • Click Start > Help and Support
  • Click on ->Undo changes to your computer with System Restore.
  • Click Create A Restore Point then click Next. Give it a name it and then click Create, then Close.
  • Close Help and Support Center.
  • Click Start | Run and type Cleanmgr
  • Select (C: ) then click OK.
  • Click the More Options tab.
  • Click Clean Up in the System Restore Section.
This will remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
This System Restore sequence is not to be done regularly, but only as a Special Case after the removal of malware.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites to your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from accidentally running or downloading known malicious programs. Available from http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
After the installation, click Download Latest Protection Updates. When it finishes, click Enable All Protection.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Install WinPatrol - Download and Install the Free WinPatrol, and view Instructions here: http://www.winpatrol.com/winpatrol.html
- WinPatrol is an active program that drops a "Scotty Dog" icon into the system tray (right click to check/change status), allows you to monitor/edit startups, services, Browser helpers, and prompts for permission if any program tries to change your system. The inexpensive PLUS version is worth it, to give you extra details about the files and processes on your system, and provide incoming protections. You can upgrade from the Free to the PLUS version anytime.

From a malware standpoint, I think you are good to go.
