It can be deleted if you can find nothing in there that you actually want to keep.

They are all things that norton thinks are viruses i would just delete them all, its unlikely that the folder is 43Gb large though sounds more like an error there. Quarantine is there so that when norton deletes something there is a secured copy so that if you notice problems after files have been deleted you can replace them with those copies. Its usually safe to delete them.
