I finally got rid of SearchPortal only to now have to fight with EliteBar. This program keeps installing itself, and refuses to be removed thru control panel's "add or remove programs" feature. I am subjected to endless pop up ads (even when I'm not online!) and IE starts as soon as I turn my computer on. I have tried AdAware, Spybot, HijackThis and Norton. Nothing seems to work! As a matter of fact, I was interrupted 7 times by pop-ups while typing this message!!! Please help!
