Sometime ago my Nortons virus detector quarantined a virus on my pc. Now that it is in quarantine, what do I do with it, do I leave it there or can I delete it?

I would just delete it, if its been there a while then you probably don't need it.

After updating the virus definition, Norton will attempt to disinfect the file. If this fails then you have the option of keeping it until it can be fixed or deleted. Files left in quarantine are isolated from the system and can not be run.

If the file is not important and can be restored from a backup then I suggest deleting it. To delete it open quarantine, select the file and then delete.
