    What do you mean you erased it - how did you erase it?

    The proper way to restore a BootCamp partition to the OS X volume is the same way you created it - open up BootCamp Assistant and restore the drive to a single partition. The opening window of BootCamp Assistant provides a link to the guide which will walk you through the restore.

    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
