Sorry I can't help directly, but I put REQ.DAT in a Google search which came up with a number of sources for assistance. I'm not sure of the etiquette of posting them on here since they were from other forums. Most seemed to involve the use of Hijackthis logs which is outside of my experience. REQ.DAT appears to be a bit of a stubborn critter.
