See this link for information on using Disk Cleanup, which has an option to delete all but the most recent restore point.

CCleaner cannot delete Restore Points.

Go to Start...Run...and type in "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Click on the System Restore tab
Check the box that says "Turn off System Restore" and then click OK
In the next dialog click on "Yes"
This will delete all System Restore points - I'd recommend a reboot before turning it back on, but it's not supposed to be necessary.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Cleanup System Restore

System Restore is a part of Windows that you can use to restore your computer to a previous state if a problem occurs. System Restore monitors changes to the system and creates restore points automatically. Once your system has been running stable for a while, you can delete all restore points except the last one in order to recover disk space.
To do this, Start Disk cleanup which can be found by navigating the following; Start Menu > Programs > Accessories> System Tools > Disk Cleanup. Once the calculation has finished, go to the “more options” tab. In the system restore section, Press the “Clean-up” button, then ok to continue.
Note: Do not delete restore points if your system has been unstable recently.

Hi again Somi:

You will want to refer to this document on Microsoft's Technet for your questions regarding deleting OLD system restore points and making room on your hard disk for NEW system restore points.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsxp/bb264753.aspx

Hope this helps you out.
