    Wasn't sure where to post this so I'll try it here fiirst.
    I got a virus and I thought I cleaned it, but everytime I start my computer I get this error:

    Registry Editor
    Cannot import C:\windows\sp.dll: Error opening the file. There may be a disk or file system error.

    How do I get this taken care of for good? Any help would be awesome!!

    I hate this damn virus! :(

    Did a little more reading and it looks like sp.dll is spyware - run msconfig (if you have windows 95/98/me) or download and run startup (nt/win2k/xp).

    You can download start up here: http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

    Look for sp.dll in one of the startup groups and uncheck it.
