What am I supposed to do next? These are listed as system files. Will my computer crash if I delete these?

It also found a WIN32-CIH-C trojan which I deleted. It was listed twice, one of which was in the restore file.

kernel32.dll, winsock.dll, wsock32.dll are all legit files that are found in C\windows\system32. Copies of them are placed in the Chest for additional protection. You only need to be concerned with files in the "Infected files" section of the Chest.

The avast! Virus Chest is an isolated folder where infected files can be stored when detected. Placing them in the chest causes the files' usage to be disabled and prevents them from causing any harm.

The virus chest also stores vital system files to prevent them from virus damage. They still can be run, but the access to the file by any source or other program is blocked until it is removed from the chest.

one of which was in the restore file.

If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

or
