My Anti-virus software detected some PC Doctor files that were infected by the W32/Susema-based!Maximus virus. Said I should delete the files, so I did. Now of course I can't open PC Doctor because it says it can't find certain files. My question is do I really need this on my PC? I've never really used it and it came with my PC. If I uninstall it, will it affect anything else on my computer, or am I just better off without it? And if I remove it, is there a site which will allow me to reinstall it?

h well, if it came with your PC, and you never never use it, just remove it. if it had been something useful for you, i would've told you to do some research, since it could be a false positive from your AV. happened to me recently with AVG and ashampoo firewall. it turned out to be a false positive, which was corrected in a recent definition update for AVG.
since you dont use it, just remove it, won't affect a single thing in your PC.
