What leads you to suspect those files ?

Do you have a antivirus program and done a full scan ?
Have you used a Online scan lately ?

nod 32 finds it in there but doesn't give me the option to clean or delete just copie it to quarantine and thats it

Its apparently a false positive, i suggest you send Nod32 a sample/copy

Are there other problems beside that ?
