Answers :

Well if you had found a virus and cleaned it up and the system is working well, then i would turn off then turn back on the restore function,
\015\012the reason i do that, is the virus may be hiding amongst the restore points,so turning it off ,deletes all them points, that is why they may have recommended you do it ,but only after you cleaned up the drive.
