Hi
I would like to turn off System Restore.
The instructions on the Microsoft website said to right click My computer then Properties followed by System properties then the System Restore tab.

When I click on My computer then properties thereís no System Properties Tab.

Iím only seeing
General, Computer Name, Hardware, Advanced, Automatic Updates, Remote.

So I went another route. Start / Programs / Accessaries / System tools / System Restore.
The System Restore window opens, but I still donít see where to turn off system restore.

What am I missing?

system is running WindowsXP SP3 :thumbsup:

Control Panel System and click on System Restore tab. There should be a check box in the upper left hand corner

Thanks for the reply.

I created a new restore point and went back to the system properties and the Restore Tab is now active.
