Our 64bit Windows 2008 standard server recently got hit with the tenga virus.  I used AVIRA to get rid of the virus and it place the exe files that were infected in quarantine.  We are reinstalling critical applications but we are encountering some issues:

1) The DNS is not working with a static ip address.
2) The exe files for the SysWOW64   folder are missing
3) The exe files for the Windows\assembly\NativeImages_v4.0.30319_32, Windows\assembly\NativeImages_v4.0.30319_64, Windows\assembly\NativeImages_v2.0.50727_32 and Windows\assembly\NativeImages_v2.0.50727_64 folders are missing

We already downloaded and reinstalled the Microsoft.net framework applications

I there a way to download the SysWOW64 and NativeImages exe's.  Is this the reason that the DNS stopped working.  Any help in this matter will be appreciated.

Along with Avira run malwarebytes on the server. As a precaution unplug the server from the network while the scan runs. Also run "sfc /scannow" to let the OS try and fix its missing files.
