If I press Start, Help and Support, type in System Restore, I find this information.

Try that.

click start button then "right"click on "My computer" then properties.this will bring up a windows that says system properties. click on system restore and check the box that turns off the monitoring and then click apply. doing this will wipe out all the memory it has stored for your restore point! If/when you turn it back on again it will make a new restore point at that time. Hope this helps

From the desktop right click my computer. Click on properties and then click on system restore. From here simply check the box to turn off system restore.
