Should you delete the infected files from the avast virus chest?

This really depends on the file. If you have a useless malicious file, such as a infected downloaded file, that has no system importance, then yes, it would be recommended to delete that file. However if it is a infected system file or other important file DON'T delete it. Leave it in the virus chest and see if it is possible to repair it.
