What files are needed for the information store service on Exchange 2003 to start?

I've been having some virus issues on a server and after rebooting the server I got this message now:

"Could not start the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service on Local Computer.
Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified."

All other Exchange services have started properly except the information store service.

It doesn't say what file it cannot find though so I don't know what to replace?
Can anyone zip up their C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Bin folder?   I'm thinking it's something that got deleted out of there.

Thanks for any help!
