In this case, I would delete all restore points and once the system is totally clean, create a fresh one.
Provided you intend to continue to use System Restore.
I have not ever needed a System Restore but I do keep the space it requires to a minimum.
The best advice is to follow essexboy's advice.

In this case essexboy didn't offer any advice, if anyone is looking for it.

Btw: the spectrum of malware covered by Win32:MalOb consists of fake antiviruses, fake codecs, spam engines etc.
