To Dave and Dave...
I finally found a fix for the above problem and you two surely deserve to
know what it is.
Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Microsoft > Internet Explorer >

I thank you again for your suggestions.
Initially, I was doing my searching using the entire computer and it
literally took hours.
Since I knew that searching KEY_CURRENT_USERS was a waste of time (you had
already suggested deleting Windows Mail), I only searched for key words
using LOCAL MACHINE.
This allowed me to shorten search times to a reasonalbe amount.
