hi,,,, on vista it is set to make a restore point at midnight every night,,,, there are also other things that are set to run,, mainly when the machine is idle,,, indexing and auto defragger will run when the pc is idle after X amount of time,,, i use these on my pc as this is pretty handy to have and if you start doing anything it stops the auto defrag and the indexing,,,,,, i did stop the midnight restore points though as 1 is made every time the pc boots which is enough for me
to check out whats tasked to run,,, type "task scheduler" into start menu search box and press enter,,,, for instructions click on the help tab in t/s and select help topics,,,
here is a link to stopping midnight restore points
hope this helps,,

good news indeed,,,, look around in the startup and see if there are any more you can stop,,,, i usually only have my security running on startup and zonk the rest,,,,,,,,,, i always tend to look in there once a fortnight as well just to see if any new software downloaded has added its self,,,,,,,,,
google updater must have been initiated when I grabbed google chrome not long ago...
I have disabled its entry in the system config.
