    Spyware!! "EliteBar" help me get rid of it.

    I have ad and popup causing program called "EliteBar Internet Explorer Toolbar" that won't stay uninstalled, just reinstalls itself even after I delete every file with Elitebar in it and uninstall it from add/remove programs. Any ideas how to get rid of it, S&D won't get rid of it, my pop-up blocker doesn't even stop any popups it causes, and it is driving me Mad!
    Please help, suggestions needed.

    Re: Spyware!! "EliteBar" help me get rid of it.

    Here's a start.

    I 'acquired' some spyware on my pc a couple weeks ago. Thought I had removed it, noticed it was back, so I invested (well, still the trial version) of ZoneAlarm Pro. Found what was trying to do stuff, got rid of that, mostly. Noticed there had been a couple captures, and tracked down what is hopefully the last thing tonight. (wowexec.exe, where the 'o' was a special character, and not normally found)

    Spyware sucks.

    Lavasoft claims that Adaware SE will remove it since the SE1R20 25.11.2004 update
