How To Disable System Restore in Windows 7

Hello lovely people 🙂

The Windows 7 / Vista System Restore feature is there to make sure that drivers, software installations and other updates can be easily rolled back. While disabling the System Restore is a really BAD idea, it is very simple to do, but the only thing you will gain from this is just some disc usage. So, although this computer repairs blog will talk about disabling system restore, please be sure that you understand…Things will crash, there are bugs, and if you disable the System Restore it will prevent you from being able to roll back any changes.

Okay, so you have read this far and you understand what changing things means – okay, let’s disable it

Right-click on the Computer icon, and choose Properties:
