I scan my system and IT giveS me Elitum.Elitebar which the "Fix Selected
problem "dont seems to fix it in the sense that when you rescan (even without
log-in to the internet) the spyware will appear again in the search result.

It is located in HKey _USERS\s-1-5-21-.................\software\LQ

and when I go to the registry on the left pan its listed as
Local-AppWizard-Generated Applications(LAGA) and LQ is a folder under (LAGA)
When the LQ is high lighted, on the right pane, I have

default reg_SZ (value not set)
TM reg_SZ 10

My question is how do I get rid of this so that when I do the spybot scan,
Elitum.EliteBar does not crop up,

TIA

Under safe mode or normal mode, in my msconfig/startup, the closest I get is
elitemoj32 c:\windows\system32 ....(cant see the rest)
and location
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVer... (cant see the rest)
I tried to double click it or move the cursor to the right, still ynable to
read the whole location of the 'file'. I must be missing something here.

320820-for backing up the whole registry?

start/all prog/accessories/system tools, there is no backup wizard and my pc
is PBell and does not come with any cd, so what shall I do next, thanks

Su su - Your system is infected with the Elite Toolbar garbage. It can
be very hard to remove. Since you obviously aren't familiar with
working in the Registry, it would be safer for you to get some help
with removing the malware. Get and run HijackThis and then post your
log to *one* of the following forums (not here, please). Make sure you
read their posting FAQ first. You will get the expert help you need
there.

help please...
I did a search for files n folders, either for Elitum.exe or Ellite.Bar and
both search says no result to display (there is only 1 drive)
Its seems rather strange as why its shows the pc infected with
Elitum.EliteBar when using the spybot (have scan at least 7 times). Also,
this pc is parkardbell and does not come with the cd. so what can I do next
to resolve the issue, TIA
