I ran a full SpyBotSD scan and then looked at the report and there are all kinds of files that I don't know. For e.g. what is crypt32.dll

My PC is like treacle and although Kaplinski and SpyBot don't find anything I am fairly certain something has nobbled it

There are also a whole lot of processes that I know nothing about that supposedly get kicked off at Startup but I am not confident enough to start messing with the Registry. Any help to calm my nerves will be much appreciated
