I posted a question a few weeks ago about getting a virus from youtube. Well, I feel like a total dolt considering I ignored Quietmans suggestions about youtube. Actually, I didn't ignore his thoughts, just didn't think anything would happen to me because I hardly look at youtube, but I had a lot of down time, so......
I've been watching a lot of youtube music videos this week, and two days ago I started getting the avast threat detected and stopped, no further action is necessary.

I've been on here long enough to believe further action surely may be necessary, so I ran mbam, sbsd, sas, no infections were found. But I have yet to scan in safe mode. I also use Comodo Firewall and all of these are the free versions.
Before I download all kids of stuff, I must say that I cannot update my os because I accidentally deleted 2 necessary files some time ago. I've tried everything I knew about to try to recover those files but have been unsuccessful.

My thinking is maybe I should just create the system restore discs and just reformat the system and start from scratch? 
What do you think?
