Now I don't really mean that Ad-Aware is causing my computer to have pop-ups. On the contrary, it's been nothing but help for me...until recently. I have posted other times on this forum about how to remove Elitum.EliteBar without HijackThis as the person in charge of the computer will not allow any software to be downloaded. Because of this, I still have Elitum.EliteBar and Download.Trojan on my computer, but after a while, the annoying pop-ups from Elitum stopped until I ran Ad-Aware. At first, I thought that Ad-Aware couldn't have done that. I restarted and no pop-ups anymore. And then I just got curious. I ran it again and the same thing happened. Can you please explain this and a few other questions?
1) Did Download.Trojan download Elitum or vice versa?
2)Is the method in http://securityrespo...oad.trojan.html
a legitimate way to remove Download.Trojan?
3)Is Elitum.EliteBar solely a pop-up threat or can it track credit card numbers, passwords, key strokes, etc?
4) Would disabling System Restore allow me to delete Elitum using Spybot?
5) Could Ad-Aware really be doing this?
Thanks a lot for your time. I appreciate it a LOT.
