i'm running win xp pro...i got a couple of viruses and need to turn off system restore! i went to try to turn it off and it wont give me the option of doing so!something about group policy???? I never turned that on ! how do you turn off system restore like this?
Ok we will need to get you on to the system admin account or edit the group policies.
Ok, well try the easier one.
Go to start > log off > log off.
When at the welcome screen press control + alt + delete twice together.
You will have the WIN2K box appear, type administrator as the username, and leave the password filed blank unless you specified one on setup of windows.
Once in try again, if not we'll have a look at the group policies.
