    I'm having trouble with some pop-ups. I think it's the elitum taskbar that I seem to unable to get rid of. Here's a Hijack This logfile that hopefully will help out.

    You have NO AV running

    Do a couple online scans from this list

    http://forums.techguy.org/t110854.html

    Then get the free AVG 7 install it, check for updates and run a full scan

    AVG 7 - http://free.grisoft.com/freeweb.php/doc/2/

    Also you need

    SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
    AdAware SE http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
    SpyBot S&D 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

    DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
    definition updates
    and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
    they say.

    In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
    SpyBot - After an update run immunize

    Do these and reboot before the next step.


    Print this and boot to safe mode
    Fix these with HJT

    F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=C:\WINDOWS\System32\Userinit.exe

    O2 - BHO: &EliteBar - {28CAEFF3-0F18-4036-B504-51D73BD81ABC} - C:\WINDOWS\EliteToolBar\EliteToolBar.dll

    O3 - Toolbar: &EliteBar - {825CF5BD-8862-4430-B771-0C15C5CA8DEF} - C:\WINDOWS\EliteToolBar\EliteToolBar.dll

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [kalvsys] C:\windows\system32\kalvmal32.exe

    View Hidden Files
    Open Windows Explorer. Go to Tools, Folder Options and click on the View tab.
    Make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked.
    Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files".
    Now click "Apply to all folders", Click "Apply" then "OK"

    Delete these files
    C:\windows\system32\kalvmal32.exe

    Delete these folders

    C:\WINDOWS\EliteToolBar

    START – RUN – key in %temp% - Edit – Select all – File – Delete
    Empty the recycle bin
    Boot and post a new log
