Malwarebytes removed important files

I ran a full scan and there were about 8 'trojan.vundo' files so I quarantined them and then deleted them from the quarantine. I then got a windows lert saying important files that ensure my computer runs properly have been deleted and to insert my Windows XP home cd (can't remember the exact title of the cd). Hoever, I don't know where it is. Could anybody please help me in recovering these files?

Hi,

This actually doesn't make sense since after a scan, you are asked to reboot. So the fact that you deleted whatever from quarantine afterwards makes me wonder if it was really malwarebytes deleting some important files, because you would get the Windows alert already. In that case, you wouldn't delete what was present in malwarebytes quarantine either. Also, important system files are whitelisted in mbam.

It looks like there's something else going on here - maybe file infector (since Virut is everywhere nowadays), so Scan and post logs - read note at bottom in green

If you're having Malware related issues with your computer that you're unable to resolve.

  1. Please read and follow the instructions provided here: I'm infected - What do I do now?

  2. If needed please post your logs in a NEW topic here: Malware Removal - HijackThis Logs

  3. When posting logs please do not use any Quote, Code, or other tags. Please copy/paste directly into your post and do not attach files unless requested.

  • Please do not post any logs in the General forum. We do not work on any logs posted in the General forum.

  • Please do not install any software or use any removal/scanning tool except for those you're requested to run by the Helper that will assist you.

  • Using these other tools often makes the cleanup task more difficult and time consuming.

  • If you have already submitted for assistance at one of the other support sites on the Internet then you should not post a new log here, you should stay working with the Helper from that site until the issue is resolved.

  • Do not assume you're clean because you don't see something in the logs. Please wait until the person assisting you provides feedback.

  • There are often many others that require asistance as well, so please be patient. If no one has responded within 48 hours then please go ahead and post a request for review

  • NOTE: If for some reason you're unable to run some or any of the tools in the first link, then skip that step and move on to the next one. If you can't even run HijackThis, then just proceed and post a NEW topic as shown in the second link describing your issues and someone will assist you as soon as they can.
