    I just turn mine off in the Administrator services. Windows, especially xp and vista, run oodles of unneeded programs each time they start up. I turn off almost all my services and run on the bare-bone ones just for speed.

    6. When turning off System Restore, the existing restore points will be deleted. Click Yes to do this.
