EliteBarfix.bat Information Page

The information in Virtual Grub Street's computer postings is the result of thousands of web searches. It can not, however, possibly be complete. The subject is vast and constantly changing. Moreover, vendor uninstall tools and other freeware removal tools do not necessarily remove all of an infection from your computer. Vendor uninstall tools, for instance, may silently leave cookies or other tracking software installed. It is suggestible to follow up a removal with one or more adware scans and/or to do an inspection using a HijackThis log. The information on the page is not guaranteed correct and any use you may choose to make of it is entirely at your own risk.

Intro. The EliteBarfix.bat removal tool was created by Michael J. Cermak, Jr.'s Tech Support Guy forums. The forum was founded in 1996 and is well known throughout the web tech community.

The tool consists of a simple MS-Dos program designed to remove key files and registry entries associated with SearchMiracle.EliteBar. It works on all standard Windows systems, Windows 95 through XP. It must be run in Safe Mode.

File Size. 3KB.

File Type. MS-Dos.

Most recent update. 04/19/05.

EliteBarfix.bat is thus far only used by the experts of TSG forums. It is used in conjunction with either CCleaner or Cleanup and either the Ewido Security Suite or Pocket KillBox anti-trojan program. The three-pronged attack (EliteBarfix.bat + cleaner + anti-trojan) is followed up with a separate removal of search-hooks, hijack target-pages, and, in the case of a multiple infection, other miscellaneous files. Run alone, this tool it does not entirely remove any EliteBar infection.
