Overview

Elite Unzip Internet Explorer Toolbar is a software program developed by Mindspark Interactive Network. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The program adds a toolbar to Microsoft Internet Explorer. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named aaBar.dll. Many users end up uninstalling this after less than a month of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 64 files and is usually about 11.77 MB (12,338,390 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 43% of users of Elite Unzip Internet Explorer Toolbar come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
