You don't need System Restore on an external drive so you can turn it off (on that drive only) click here

That will remove the infection.

But in any case, a virus in the restore file cannot re-infect your system unless you use that restore point.

What you should ponder is how it got into your system in the first place. It shows up a weakness in the protection you are or were using.
