DLL unregister error

Hi. When i try to unregister a dll from a particular spyware program, i get
the error message "[Dllname] was loaded but the DllUnregisterServer entry
point could not be found. The file cannot be registered" Microsoft help
gives two possibilities: (1)the file is not .dll or .ocx - this is not the
case; I can locate the dll file in SYSTEM32, and (2)the dll name was not
exported or has been corrupted in memory. It goes on to suggest using Pview
to locate the process and kill it.

I cannot locate the process using pview. Does anyone have a solution for
scenario 2 above?

Thanks,
Drew

Start it if you want it in memory. and I suppose 3/ the file is corrupted - similar to 2 but is corrupt on disk rather than memory.

What makes you think it can be unregistered. Did someone tell you to type it.

the dll is stickrep.dll, part of the unwanted program Spyware Quake. It's a
bogus spyware remover, and I was following the instructions from a website on
how to manually remove it. The instructions are pretty standard (from
2-Spyware.com). I've done this many times before to remove other malware and
never had this problem

Try these instructions and tools instead :

Just because it's a dll doen't mean it can be unregistered. Only some dlls can be unregistered (or registered) specifically com servers which tend to be dll or ocx extensions. Open the file in notepad and look for the word dllunregisterserver, if it ain't there it ain't gonna work..
