I have noticed alot of bad responses to the Sytem Restore facility, all have out right said to turn it off. I've never got around to asking 'why?' so thought it was about time. Is it due to draining resources or is virus and trogans problems?

System restore is an important tool and it shouldn't be turned off.
You may be referring to resetting system restore, which is normally done, when a computer is going through malware cleaning process.
When the computer is declared clean, this is a normal procedure to reset restore points.
It's done by turning system restore off, restarting computer and turning system restore back on.
This way, all old restore points (possibly infected) are removed and new, clean restore point is created.
