in correct this is standard practice when removing a virus, when you download a fix or go to your av site most times you told to switch of your system restore, you remove the virus first then switch it off, reboot your computer and rescan your PC if its clean then switch back on, by not resetting it all you will do is reinfect you system from your system restore as that will have been effected first, when you get a virus like that your system restore doesn't work most times anyway, if you follow the fixes given by you AV website then you will not harm your PC if you do just run a windows repair or reinstall your OS.
