renaming system files prevents the system from functioning properly. if you want to damage an OS the system files are the way.
if you have remove all vestiges of the virus, then you should be able to repair the files, but I prefer a drive format and OS re-installation. a clean installation on a freshly formatted drive is the surest way to clean the system.
