This thing "Estalive" is being stopped by AOL many times per day - how might I rid myself of this pest?

start with checking for malware causes to your problem.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

I recommend you perform at least one online scan as well.
BitDefender Online Scanner. <- Add a check by "Autoclean".
eTrust Antivirus Web Scanner. <- "Cure" whatever is found. Be sure to read the eTrust Antivirus Scanner Help Guide before scanning.
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.]

FYI: AOL automatically installs Spyware Protection as part of their bundled package. This Spyware Protection program is a licensed clone that is not notably effective in its scanning. SpyZapper works alongside AOL Spyware Protection to automatically target the most disruptive forms of spyware and other programs that may cause connection problems, performance issues, and security risks. The SpyZapper feature scans the computer and helps members decide whether they want to block the programs it identifies. Again, this feature is not notably effective.

I hope this is not the only anti-spyware protection you are relying on. If so, see BC's List of Virus & Malware Resources and Trustworthy Anti-Spyware Products.
