FAQ 3.12 should help you find them:

What do you mean by "delete the SpamBayes Icon"?  If you uninstalled it from
Add/Remove Programs then SpamBayes is totally disabled and will not do
anything to your Inbox.  It is a known issue that the toolbar itself is not
removed on an uninstall, but you can do that manually.  You can read all
about this in FAQ 3.16:


If you simply deleted the SpamBayes folder from your start menu then the
SpamBayes add-in is probably still active.  You can test this by deleting
the toolbar as described in the above FAQ, then exiting and restarting
Outlook.  If the toolbar comes back then SpamBayes is still installed, and
you'll need to go to Add/Remove Programs to uninstall it.
