PC-cillin found the Cryp_Tap-2 in a C:\WINDOWS\system32\vtstu.dll and it could not quarantine it or delete it. I went into safe mode and deleted the file and emptied the Recycle Bin. When I restarted my PC it would boot up and act like everything was fine. I thought my PC was fixed. Then, everything went away and all I had was the wallpaper. I could not do anything. So I restarted PC and again it did the exact same thing. So I got out my XP cd and did a recovery console or so I thought. When my PC rebooted it did exactly the same thing. What am I doing wrong or do I kiss my HD goodbye?
