If you have not double-clicked and run the application, you are uninfected.

If your AV program warned you it was a virus, that also means its been detected and it should have isolated it as well.

Delete the file, empty your recycle bin. Keep your AV program up to date, you should be fine.

Well done on identifying it as well, you are quite astute.

As he said, delete it. Update your antivirus then do a full scan after deletion for peace of mind.
