There are *THREE* apparent typos there ("...rytpo" instead of
"...rypto"). Do please check what you type. Did you by any chance
type
   python -c "import Crytpo"
originally? Were your "following results" obtained by copy/paste or by
typing it all in yourself?

What is in the .../site-packages/Crypto directory?
