some critical system files on my XP are infected by trojans:
services.exe
winlogon.exe
explorer.exe
svchost.exe
spoolsv.exe
and cant be cleaned so they must be deleted.
So, is it safe to copy same files from "%systemroot\system32\dllcache\cache" which are clean, on the original location where are infected files-needed to be deleted?

1. I scanned system with eset online,bitdefender online,malwarebyte and Hitman Pro 3, and they found Trojan.Win32.Patched.aa in all those files.

2. I planned to do this operation through "Microsoft Windows Recovery Console"


Thanks for advice in advance.

-infected with Trojan.Win32.Patched.aa
-all those scanners suggest only to delete files, but not to clean them anyway
