There are viruses that replace Windows files with themselves, so they *may* be viruses. If your PC is running fine after what Avira did, leave it be.

hmm as far as i can see, my PC is still running as it is. so yeah, i hope nothing screws up.
should i expect that something "might" happen in my PC? or something gets worse if i don't get any remedy to fix this one?

well, its really a toss up. As hang-the-9 said, sometimes viruses replace windows files with themselves, and they are named the same. your protection software might not know the difference, OR it might know something we dont. What you could do is keep the files in quarantine and run a windows repair to let the windows disc itself replace those files. Unless someone else has a better idea....

Well, let's look at the situation. Avira quarantied what may or may not be a virus.

If it is a virus, your system is working fine now, no crashes. The virus is safe in quarantine. If those 2 files are not a virus, your PC is still working fine, so why bother restoring them.

If those 2 files ARE viruses and you try to restore them, who knows what will happen.

So your best course of action is to do nothing, any system issues will show themselves soon enough if there are any. Play some games, open some programs, movies etc... see if anything does not work right.
