Hello,

I have a machine running Windows XP that was having some issues. Installed Computer Associates EZ Anti Virus and ran a scan. The scan picked up on 331 instances of infected files. All of them were infected by Win32/virut.5127. I've done a little research on the topic, but I'm a little frustrated. The AV program quarantined all of the files, but a large number of them are files crucial to system processes. How can I clean and restore these files?

You might want to do a online scan with either Panda and EWIDO

I am curious how you determined that the files were crucial. Is your computer and its applications not functioning properly?
You should be able to restore these quarantined files easily; check the Help file for the AV for precise instructions.
