    I'm running McAfee on a W2k SQL Server Cluster. The domain controller had a
    number of viruses of various sorts. During the run I noticed that several
    files were cleaned (removed) from the system.

    Once I rebooted the server, I saw that a few services in the event viewed
    failed to start ...
    kde and RtKit service failed to start - and these were some of the files
    (kde.exe being one) that were removed in the anti-virus pass.

    What are the kde and RtKit services? Are these viruses or legitimate? If
    legitimate, how can I recover these files?

    Did you check out Google and the various antivirus sites (NAV,
    www.antivirus.com)?
