I always delete infected objects unless they're connected to a system file then I disinfect.

Not quite sure that I understand the question. It is "safe" to delete a quarantined file.

I suspect that it is "stuck" in a System Restore point. Try turning ogff SR, scan to be sure, then re-enable SR. click here

Sorry I don't use Norton so I don't know exactly how you delete them from quarantine. However, in quarantine they cannot do any harm.
