How do i kill Elitemod32.exe?

I am on my friends computer at the moment, and she has got this virus thingy called elitemmod32.exe, i have tried to delete it with avast virus scanner, didnt work. I tried to kill it by taking it off the ms config startup list, and then deleting it with hijack this, didnt work, what can i do? arrghh.

Tried any online scanning tools?
Or any of the anti spyware/antivirus tools in the list here:

The EliteBar is a BHO (Browser Helper Object) for Internet Explorer.
This program was manually installed by the user.
First, uninstall it from Add/Remove Programs the do a search for EliteBar.

Some of my search results:

A good worked example of finding/killing with HJT - note the evil scum hiding tactics!

usually doing the scanning from safemode is helpful/necessary if the spyware is designed well.

did you make sure you had system restore turned of as it will be hiding in there as well

Reboot in safemode and try again. If windows explorer won’t let you delete it, try it in command prompt. You might be able to use xp recovery console as a last result.
