Hey first time on and im not 100% sure if this is where i post my question. If in the wrong place please move or tell me, thanks in advance.

I'm currently running win XP. I have run a virus check and found the following exes. (listed as worms)

A0044949.exe
A0044950.exe
A0044956.exe
A0045982.exe
A0046024.exe
A0046068.exe
A0046115.exe

Now i know the first one is a worm, but i have been unable to find a yes or no to the rest and dont want to delet them and cause my OS to crash.

The files are not part of XP.
BUT they are names that you may find in the System Volume Information folder - your "System Restore" area.
