Default Virus Consequences

My wife's WinXP Home computer was infected with a virus, PMpatch, and the AVG virus checker detected the infected modules and moved them to a virus vault or deleted them.

I am supposing that the deletion of these modules means that the underlying programs won't work. For example, PicasaMediaDetector.exe and Nerocheck.exe are among the modules that were deleted. I suppose that the proper response is to reinstall these two programs. I would post the screen capture, but I don't think attachments work yet.

Am I correct in my suppositions? No, I don't have backups for this computer, but I think maybe I should start doing that, too.
