If it deletes, it means it cant clean. No other way to save the file. Try any other AV.

so either ....
1.let it clean and hope its not a system file
2.keep the setting to not remove/clean incurable detections...mighty risky though and scan with other on demand scanners before deleting it
3.Always keep a clean,working image backed up on an external hdd for the day when lightening strikes ....be it infection/bad update/botched software installation etc
