the difference of totally deleting an infected file from just moving it to a vault, it that when something goes wrong with your system or application in particular, with sending the file to a vault, you can always restore it. but most of the time what i do since when you choose heal, i remove the infected file, just make sure though that you know the file being move is not in any way an important file of your system, and in your case, i hope it's not. so what you need to do is to rescan your system, if it detects any virus, try to heal it, if it doesn't work, try to totally remove.

Just to make sure, get a second opinion like install another anti virus, you could try this, kaspersky internet edition. You can download the free trial edition, it works just like the retail edition. Install and make a full scan and lets see what it can do with that worm virus attached in your explorer file. Kaspersky internet security works better than AVG, nothing escapes from kaspersky at least with my experiences, it's worth a try and it's free.
