Adware applications, toolbars and browser extensions may serve advertisements even while you are not surfing the Internet.
This application may serve various types of advertising, not limited to pop-up ads. It may result in blocking the activity of a PC user since this malware consumes a lot of memory because it constantly monitors if someone is deleting it from the registry or is trying to kill it in some way. It may also block anti-virus programs and contains a list of *.exe program names in memory to block them if it detects they are running in the task manager.

This new version of the EliteToolbar has all the previous disadvantages of the CoolWebSearch malware and some new ones including pop-up windows every 2 minutes, a permanent block of the Google Toolbar (if present), redirecting of any instances of Google and Yahoo web-browsing, and so on...

Look carefully at what you have to do:

The only thing you have to do is to reboot your machine in Safe Mode (just click the F8 key as the PC is starting, just before the MS Windows flag screen appears) and run the EliteToolbar Remover, then click the "Kill Elite Toolbar" button and wait until it finishes its work.

Occasionally a DOS box may appear asking your permission to delete some files in temporary Windows directories. You must accept the deletion of these to be sure of properly removing the malware!
