Corrupted archive.jar files

I scanned with avg and it found 3 files there are corrupted. I think this occured after I installed Macromedia Flash Player 10.1. This isn't the first time I have had archive.jar files being corrupted. In the past, when I found that these files were corrupted, I would go find them and delete them. I know that was probably a bad idea but since they were corrupted I thought they were useless so I did what I did. Now I'm just wondering if I should delete these 3 files or is there a way I can make them so they are not corrupted. Thank you in advance.

Corrupted files cannot be made into non-corrupted ones. They have to be replaced by known good ones. That's assuming the files really are corrupted -- not sure where AVG figures in all this since it's job is to find virus-infected files - which can often be fixed or disinfected. Corruption is a different matter.
