<< NIS 2008 detected a virus in rar archive.It is a hacktool virus. >>
You are right to be cautious but are you sure you did not deliberately download a tool with that in it?
I ask because I have had a hacktool reported and when I looked to see where it was located it was within a boot disk image downloaded from a reputable site -- bootdisk.com probably.

Did Auto-Protect Detect this?
If not done so already, Update your system via LiveUpdate and then Run a Full System Scan without being Connected to the Internet.

Yes,Auto-Protect detects this issue.Live Update is up to date and I was scan system (full system scan) with internet connection off.(Also I made full system scan with and without Safe mode).
I can delete this file manualy.Norton refuses deleting because "cannot remove file from an unsupportet file format" and this issue is still marked as unresolved.
My question is why when I click on review button and apply actions noting happens?
As I mentioned in my previous post when I was used NIS 2007 and clicked on review,IE 7 opens,redirects me to Symantec site for review and marked this issue as resolved.

In my earlier message I referred to 'hacktool" inside a bootable CD image. Actually here is a good read on the topic of false alerts in AV scanners:
It was in fact in one of their compilations that the hacktool exists, for valid and not nefarious purposes.
Have you checked to see the actual location of the one flagged on your system?
