EliteToolbar Remover

Freeware – SimplyTech – Windows

EliteToolbar Remover is a freeware tool that helps people delete the new type of infestions caused by the EliteToolbar variants that are circulating on the web nowadays. This software is free and can be redistribuited everywhere anytime.

Actually some software like Spybot v.1.3, CWShredder v.2.12, Noadware, Adaware v.6, SpyNuker 2004 and SBC Yahoo! Anti-spy have no-success in deleting this very frustrating malware. These programs find and delete it, but it keeps coming back since this new variant is very hard to be cleaned from the operative system.

The main problem is that the malware creates a lot of registry entries and it goes in execution at the start of the pc widing itself in RAM and deleting its own *.exe from the C:WindowsSystem32 directory.

When the ordinary tools try to remove it, they only clean the registry calls, the C:WindowsEliteToolbar directory and the cabinets files where it has been originated the first time, but they don’t take any actions against the malware itself that is currently running in RAM memory and is waiting for the pc O.S. to be shutted down to repeat the infestation from the back!

This new version of the EliteToolbar keeps all the previous disadvantages brang from the CoolWebSearch malware and some new ones including pop-up windows at every 2 minutes, permanent block of the Google Toolbar (if eventually present), redirecting of any instances for Google’s and Yahoo’s web-browsing needings, and so on…

This tool should be run from safe mode. It will not be able to delete files in use by Windows, so running it from a regular windows session is useless. A readme is included with complete details on the tool and the malware it removes.
