Once you or the computer has specified a restore point, it cannot be altered You can definately reduce the number of available restore points by changing the settings in your System Properties Click on Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore Clicking this will bring up a new window On the left hand side of the new page that just appeared you will see a blue underlined link labeled 'System Restore Settings', click it This will bring up the System Properties and under the System Restore tab click and drag the slider under Disk Space Usage to a lesser percentage You also have the option of simply turning off system restore in the same window If you do decide to turn off your system restore, make sure to manually set a restore point monthly It's always a good idea to have a backup plan in case your computer decides to crash one day Good Luck!!
