Well, if you don't remove it, the virus is going to continue running rampant, possibly replicating itself, infecting other portions of Windows and or infect your friends through email, so the question is, why haven't you removed it yet?
After removing it, you can always restore it from a previous backup, if you do backups.

Move it to quarantine and then delete it. Sounds like the AV is doing it's job. Then download,and install Malwarebytes (http://www.malwarebytes.org/) free version. Run a full system scan and get rid of anything it might find. GL

do what is in the first post:

after you edit it, windows will only allow you to save it as a .txt file, do that (in the same folder) then rename it without a file extension.

btw why is this in the CPU section?

Malwarebytes is one of those that fits well with almost any AV. You will have no conflicts. Glad to hear it worked out.
