PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows XP SP1 (WinNT 5.01.2600)
Problem Application Name & Version: pop up due to elite bar
Problem Hardware Make & Model: DELL Latitude
Error Messages: none



Hallo everybody!

I've already followed all the suggestions, hints, tricks and more to remove elitum.elite bar from my wife's laptop, but it's still there.
I used Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D: the second one allways finds Elite bar (can't eliminate 2 entries) and DSO-Exploit (it seems to be eliminated but it's allways present).
Another problem (less important, I guess) is W32.Spybot.Worm in C.\windows\system32\smss.exe. Symantec can find it (well...sometimes it finds it, sometimes not) but can't remove or quarantine. I allready followed Symantec instructions but I'm not sure this problem is completely over.

OK, thank in advance!

Here is my HJT log:

Set Windows to show Hidden files and folders
* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View Tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.



**(Always create a Folder for HiJackThis anywhere but your Temp/Temporary Internet Folders. This is where it will save the backup files needed if there's a problem.)**

Press Ctrl/Alt/Del and "End Task" or "End Process" on each of the following: (They may or may not be there)

smsss.exe << THIS HAS 3 S's
msc32.exe
sndsys.exe
winmplayd.exe
wvsvc.exe
mcafe32.exe


Turn off System Restore WinXP WinME. (Turn it back on after this is repaired and you've rebooted.) Close all other open Windows and have HiJackThis Fix:

Now delete these Folders or Files that are Highlighted: (You may need enable "Show all Files" and disable "Hide System Files" in Windows Explorer / Tools / Folder Options / View Tab) (You may have to boot to "Safe Mode" in order to delete some Files/Folders)

C:\WINDOWS\System32\smsss.exe

C:\WINDOWS\ttt.bat
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ttt.bat

These next files---Look in these 3 Folders for them--If you find any--Delete them

C:\
C:\WINDOWS\
C:\WINDOWS\System32\

msc32.exe
sndsys.exe
winmplayd.exe
wvsvc.exe
mcafe32.exe


Now, empty all your TEMP Folders (WinXp has up to 4 of them) / Temporary Internet Files Folder and then empty your "Recycle Bin" and Reboot.

In Xp, here are some locations of Temp files

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

Turn on System Restore

Hi Cactus!
This time we didn't make mistakes (I hope...), but the situation is not really good because elite bar is allways there and there is an entry in HJT that I can't eliminate:
