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.


#6

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.
