PE_PARITE.A virus???

My media player decided it wasn't going to play mpg movies so decided to run a virus scan on my system just out of curiosity. The scan came up with PE_PARITE.A on 174 files. I had the scanner to kill anything it found and report it's findings when done. The virus was killed 171 times but was left in the folowing
c. program files fixit exe. this is my virus scanner. c\windows\system\mstask.exe
and c\windows\system\stimon.exe

the first two I seem to have cleared I there any danger with this virus, if indeed it is a virus please before I decide to format and reinstall.....takes hours. I'm running win98. thankyou in advance.. Andrew.
