Task Manager service could not start file missing

Windows server 2003 was infected with a virus.  When the anti-virus removed the virus we could not run the backup because the task manager service would not start.  The virus changed the path to the executible to this: C:\WINDOWS\system32\zaicoxzu.exe.  How do you change this and what is the correct file for the task manager service?
