Note that: As from Windows 7, you can remove the restore points without disabling the SystemRestore feature.
- Click the Windows logo(Start Button), right click on "Computer" then click "Properties":
- Then click on "System Protection".
- Click on "Configure".
- To disable System Restore, select "Disable System Protection" then click "Apply". If you want to simply delete the restore points, click "Delete" and confirm by clicking on "Yes".
- Confirm the operation.
- To Enable the system restore, just select "Restore my system settings and previous versions of files" instead of "Disable system protection" and then confirm with "Apply".
