Why did the virus program delete files and instead of just the virus?

Question

i've got this anti-virus program called bullgaurd and i used it to scan for a virus. It found one and it asked if i wanted to delete it, i clicked ok and after that it said i had to restart the computer for new settings to ocur. i restarted the computer and when everything loaded up again, a "program not found" box came up. i clicked cancel and then more came one after another. after all that finished i tried to open other programs but the box came up again so i had to find it using locate in the box. Could you please tell me what file i deleted and how i could fix it please.

It seems like the bullguard system, delete files that were infected by the virus instead of only getting rid of the virus itself What you can do is go to windows explorer and look for missing programs and then reinstall them.
