I turn it off and after some time it gets enabled again. I hate it when Windows wants to dictate me that i need that s**t. I miss the days without any "security options" so that i could do whatever i want without notices, accepting uac bulls**t, run as admin, even run notepad as admin to edit host file, it just goes in the wrong way and now please don't tell me that it makes my windows way more secure. Okay, sorry, i'm not actually here for a rant but it was appropriate. Any method to turn System Restore off completely? I could disable the Volume Shadow Copy service, but that feels kind of dirty.
