Etlrlws Toolbar Removal Guide

Do you know what Etlrlws Toolbar is?

Etlrlws Toolbar is a recent variant of the Zlob Trojan group of infections in the form of a malicious toolbar. The Etlrlws Toolbar usually installs onto a users computer without their permission though a downloaded video codec or from a P2P website. Etlrlws Toolbar pushes rogue anti-spyware programs through clicking on any of its icon buttons. Usually the Etlrlws Toolbar displays a set of four buttons that look like legitimate spyware removal functions. The buttons on Etlrlws Toolbar are not valid functions to remove spyware or implement any type of protection for your computer.

In non-techie terms: Etlrlws Toolbar functions similar to other previous malicious toolbars such as Enlfxgw Toolbar. It is a good suggestion to remove the Etlrlws Toolbar as soon as possible or you run the risk of installing additional parasites on your system. Etlrlws Toolbar does not add any valid or useful functionality to your browser no matter how legitimate Etlrlws Toolbar may look. Do not under any circumstances purchase the programs that Etlrlws Toolbar may promote from any websites that Etlrlws Toolbar redirects you too.

    Took me all day to try to get rid of that toolbar, and than I ran across your site, at first I thought it was another of those "free scan" but pay to fix sites, but yours was truly free, I followed instructions and FINALLY thanks to you that horrible toolbar is gone. I hope it stays gone. Thank you so much, I was really at the end of my rope had no other options I had tried everything. Super nice program and very very nice of you to help me. If you give me your address I would like to send you a little donation. I hope all others that benefit from this free tool do the same

    I can only really say two words: Thank you.

    I tend to think of myself as fairly savey on the web and have come across most of the tricks. But alas, the Etlrlws Toolbar was the cleverest. I honestly thought I was downloading a codec to view some video. I remember just staring at that IE warning saying "Are you sure you want me to download that file and run it?" Of course I clicked yes. Moments later a DOS prompt quickly popped up. “Damn!@#”, I said.

    Never mind. I right-clicked on that highly suspicious toolbar and saw it was labelled etlrlws. I Google searched the term and came across your wonderful Spyware-techie website. I've now added your site to my favourites - just in case.

    Instructions were clear and the removal software has worked a treat.
