I tried to unregister eoqir.dll, but I got the following
message;"eoqir wqs loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry
point was not found. eoqir does not appear to be a .dll or
a .OCX file". I found several instances of "eoqir: in the
registry, but deleting them does not seem to do anything.
Is it re-formatting time? I did use CWShredder, Ad-Aware,
Spybot and Hijackthis, to no avail. The log file had many
entries, including the eoqir stuff.
