Items in Hijack This labled as "no file" or "file missing"

This isn't a current problem of mine, but I do have a question: occasionally I wll come across a computer that displays "no file" or "file missing" on items / services that are needed to run Windows.  I don't check those and delete them, but wonder if there is a cause for this?  After cleaning up a machine of a virus or malware, sometimes these status messages in Hijack This will go away.

Thank you, in advance, for the answer to this question.
