Disable System Restore on Server 2008?

Hi,
OS: Windows Server 2008 Standard SP2
Have a trojan infection and need to turn off system restore.
The Control Panel/System applet has no "System Protection" item listed under
tasks( as in Vista).
The System Properties dialog has no "System Protection" tab either.

How do I go about this, or is there some "new way" of dealing with this type
of issue now?

Regards,
Mike

Re: Disable System Restore on Server 2008?

I'm referring to the mechanism whereby system files are backed up (and
restored when when deleted or modified). This is a problem when a virus
successfully infects one of these files, since it becomes part of the
backup.
Almost all antivirus/antispyware programs instruct the user to temporarily
disable system restore in order to enable successful removal.
Is there another mechanism ( In Server) that enables removal without a
shadow or backed-up copy of the virus from immediately replacing the
removed/quarantined file(s)?
Sorry for the cross-posting, I didn't know which group was appropriate.
Regards,
Mike

Hello cushlomokree,

Ok, you mean Windows resource protection. I think there is no way to disable
this. Check this one about:
