A few minutes ago i was hit by a silent java drive-by and it changed some files in C:\Windows\System32\wbem\repository\ at the time i was running a app that would monitor files that were created, deleted, changed, etc so i know what files:

Changed Item: C:\Windows\System32\wbem\repository\OBJECTS.DATA
Changed Item: C:\Windows\System32\wbem\repository\INDEX.BTR
Changed Item: C:\Windows\System32\wbem\repository\MAPPING2.MAP

Are these files important? Will they effect my computer at all since they were modified? If they are important how can i restore them to there original state
