Since I am not really sure what that file does I cannot say if it being quarantined is the reason for you not being able to install things from your CDs. If it is, it seems odd that you can install things you download and not things from CDs, unless the things you have downloaded do not use the Install Shield Wizard.
Do you, or did you, have any signs of being infected before this was flagged?
That file seems to be getting flagged by quite a few anti virus programs (AVG, Kapersky, Norton) and some are saying it is a false positive. I would try an online virus scan of that file and see what happens. Someone else said that after Norton flagged it on their system they scanned that file with the online scan from Bit Defenders and it did not find anything.
If you are running an HP system and this file was in the HP recovery section, then it is probbaly legit.
Before copying that file from another computer to yours, I would scan that file on the other computer with Norton and see if it is also flagged as infected. If it is, it probably is a false positive and you could just restore yours from the quarantine folder.
