You can also use Registry Editor to disable System Restore. To use this alternative, perform the following steps:

Start the registry editor (regedit.exe). 

Go to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\sr].

If a "DisableSR" value doesn't exist, go to the Edit menu, select New, DWORD value, and create the value. Set the value to 4 to disable System Restore or 0 to enable System Restore.

Go to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\srservice]

Double-click Start, and set the value to 4 to stop the service from starting or to 0 for normal startup.

Close the Registry Editor.
