Recently I got the win32/AMalum.ZZOAF on my windows XP SP# PC which I succesfully removed form my system but some files in the system32 folder got corrupted.

What tools can i use to check and replaced corrupted windows XP file from the system32 directory without reinstalling the whole OS as the system seems to be working fine.

i would start with reininstalling sp2 then sfc /scannow.

you might want  to have a windows cd and slipstream sp2 into it if you do not have one with sp2 installed before starting.
