Note that, whether you are using NOD32 or any other anti-virus, it is
never really necessary to delete a restore point that contains a
Any form of malware--whether adware, virus, or anything else--in a
restore point is completely innocuous and can do nothing at all
*unless* you restore from that restore point.
I wouldn't try to get rid of the restore points, but just keep a
record of which are infected and be sure not to restore from them.
Wait for the infected point(s) to fall off the end of the chain--a
maximum of 90 days.
The reason I say that is that deleting your restore points takes away
any ability to restore from them, and you may run into a situation (a
non-viral situation) where that's necessary. If you have to restore
from an infected restore point and then remove the virus with your
anti-virus program, it's not a great situation, but it's very likely
to be a better situation than not being able to restore at all.
