I hope this is the correct way to reply to you Dwarbe.
I ran Malware; Kaspersy;AVG;Spybot; Microsoft Fixit; and a couple of other free downloads then got so desperate I bought PCHealth boost which claimed it targeted this particular virus. Our local PC repair technician came in and spent a couple of hours (small town in BC so not a lot of choices re. repair), he ran the programs in the safe mode.
So far the only program to even identify Cryptic on the computer is AVG which is unable to do anything with the files. In fact AVG scans and gives a clean bill of health and then sometimes when I open a new web page it informs me i have Cryptic but it can't remove the files.
Thanks for trying to help, I am going to download the other freeware you mentioned and see if that works. Fingers crossed
