nod32 anti-virus signals warning about blaster virus on a machine even after we cleaned/patched/firewalled.

then we realized the wonderful XP restore feature, it must have kept a copy of the virus somewhere.

we disabled restore, reboot, enable to see what happen next.

Yes, that would be correct. It is recommended to disable System Restore prior to removing the worm/virus and installing the patch. After that is done System Restore can be enabled again.
