The file is the virus. There is nothing to REPAIR - only legitimate files that are infected (have viral code added to them) can be repaired. Whilst in Quarantine it can't touch you PC. Leave it there or delete it.

If you use System Restore.........

Switch System Restore off and then reboot and then switch System Restore on a gain to flush it from there.
