Theres probably no need to extract/restore the file.
IF yr AV detected the virus it would be before any damage was done.
When Norton detects a virus the process, apart from giving you the options
to repair/delete, gives a direct link to Norton site, which in turn gives
specific details. http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data...
To repair sys files in win2k, see help/scanow (Restore sys files)
