    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:
