Turbo Tax CDILLA is eating up system resources and slowing down my system ,what can I do ?

Question

I installed Intuit's Turbo Tax 2002 on my computer before I learned about the CDILLA junk that Turbo Tax 2002 also installs with its program. I understand that CDILLA buries itself deep in the system so that even formatting the hard drive doesn't remove this booger. CDILLA is eating up system resources and slowing down my system and I want it gone but still have Turbo Tax 2002 functionality. Is this possible? If so, what do I need to do?

The CDilla licencing causes a major slowdown to your computer because it runs two services CDilla64 and CDILLA10 Since CDilla10.exe is a 16bit application, it has to run NTVDM and wowexec.exe (windows 3.1 on windows emulation)

To remedy this problem, simply delete CDilla10.exe from your WINNT directory on win2000 or WINDOWS dir on XP NOTE: This isn't a crack, the CDilla64 is still doing its job Once you restart your computer you'll enjoy the free clock cycles If you would like immediate reslults follow these steps: Press 'CTRL ALT DEL' on your keyboard Select the 'Processes' tab in your 'Windows Task Manager' then 'Right Click' with your mouse the process name 'NTVDM' and select 'End Process' from the menu.
