Message: The image library does¨nt work any more.

I'm getting an error:
When trying to access the image-directory (default) - I'm getting a message saying I can safely delete the library and that it will not affect my image-files. And: That the directory has stopped working.

This sounds strange.

Have anyone had this problem? Sounds like a virus.
Please advice. I work within healtcare, so any deleterious act would - what would it do to you?

Please: Don't make viruses.

There is no option such as "Restore default libraries" in the Norwegian version.
I tried the steps: The library is deleted and I can restore it by the "Regret deleting..." option, but then it is still inaccessible.
