    Lots of system files missing

    Just bought a new laptop with Vista Home Premium 64bit. Using it for a day, I ran HijackThis! and cameup with a bunch of system files missing. I reinstalled the OS from the recovery disks, still have same results. System seems to run fine, though. Anyone with similar problems?

    Following files show as missing.

    C:\Windows\System32\alg.exe (file missing)
    C:\Windows\system32\DFSR.exe (file missing)
    C:\Windows\System32\msdtc.exe (file missing)
    C:\Windows\system32\locator.exe (file missing)
    C:\Windows\system32\lsass.exe (file missing)
    C:\Windows\system32\SLsvc.exe (file missing)
    C:\Windows\System32\snmptrap.exe (file missing)
    C:\Windows\System32\spoolsv.exe (file missing)
    C:\Windows\system32\UI0Detect.exe (file missing)
    C:\Windows\System32\vds.exe (file missing)
    C:\Windows\system32\vssvc.exe (file missing)
    C:\Windows\system32\wbem\WmiApSrv.exe (file missing)

    I think I found my answer -

    Missing Files?

    Looks like a permissions problem for HiJackThis, not an actual issue.

    On the plus side, reinstalling the OS got rid of all my bloatware.
