    In what order should I do this

    I disable system restore ran scan but it isn't going to pick it up because it is in restore dir.

    So should I run scan and then when it picks up virus and message pops up restart computer to complete heal say no and shut off system restore then restart?

    when you shut off restore system it purges the folder & gets rid of the virus .
