Default Is there a way to stop system restore from making new restore points?

Is there a way to stop system restore from making new restore points? I wanna stop the new restore points because of the memory they take up.

In Win XP right click on My Computer | Properties | System restore tab. There is a check box to disable automatic system restore. You may want to keep one good system restore point, just in case.

I was typing while you posted. It looked strange when I clicked the Submit Reply button because two posted appeared, yours and mine.

If you turn off system restore it deletes all the previous restore points so beware of that. And if you have some sort of problem then you can't restore your computer if system restore isn't turned on.
