Yeah I had to do that once before to rid myself of magistra.b virus a while ago. You cant just delete them though. You will need to disable RESTORE, restart your computer then re-enable RESTORE again.
Doing this will purge all restore items effectively creating an initial restore point.

Yeah, it actually 'purges' all your restore points and thereby removing the files that are infected with virus.
Once completed you will have NO restore points at all. You will be actually starting the restore process again. If for example you completed this process today and later on you wanted to use the restore feature then the furtherest date back you could go to would be todays date.

hope that makes sense
