From http://www.jsifaq.com/subr/tip8900/rh8979.htm: This is for a batch file named DisableRP.bat.

The syntax for using DisableRP.bat is:

DisableRP Drive RetVal

Where Drive is the drive letter of the drive on which you want to disable System Restore, or ALL to disable it on all drives, and RetVal is a call directed environment variable that will contain a Y if the script was successful, or a N is the script failed to disable the requested object.

NOTE: If you disable System Restore on the boot drive, System Restore will be disabled on all drives.

NOTE: The boot drive is the drive that contains the Windows folder, and the system drive is the drive that contains the files that Windows uses to start, like Boot.ini, NTLDR, etc..

DisableRP.bat contains:

@echo off
if {%2}=={} @echo Syntax: DisableRP Drive RetVal&goto :EOF
setlocal
set work=%1
if /i "%work%" NEQ "ALL" set drive=%work:~0,1%:\
set DisableRPVBS="%TEMP%\DisableRP_%RANDOM%.VBS"
set OK=N
@echo Set objArgument = Wscript.Arguments>%DisableRPVBS%
@echo If objArgument.Count() ^> 0 Then>>%DisableRPVBS%
@echo Drive =  objArgument(0)>>%DisableRPVBS%
@echo Else>>%DisableRPVBS%
@echo Drive = "">>%DisableRPVBS%
@echo End If>>%DisableRPVBS%
@echo Set obj = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!root/default:SystemRestore")>>%DisableRPVBS%
@echo If (obj.Disable(Drive)) = 0 Then>>%DisableRPVBS%
@echo     wscript.Echo "Y">>%DisableRPVBS%
@echo Else>>%DisableRPVBS%
@echo     wscript.Echo "N">>%DisableRPVBS%
@echo End If>>%DisableRPVBS%
for /f "Tokens=*" %%d in ('cscript //nologo %DisableRPVBS% %drive%') do (
 set OK=%%d
)
del /q %DisableRPVBS%
endlocal&set %2=%OK%

Use this in a batch file to do the following:
Turn off Windows system restore
Turn off Windows automatic updates
Reboot Computer

@echo off
reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore" /v DisableSR /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v AUOptions /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v AUState /t REG_DWORD /d 7 /f
shutdown -r -f -t 2

Silly_Burrito: I think stopping the "wauserv" Windows Update service using SC or NET STOP will only disable Windows Updates for the current boot.  I think they will re-enable themselves at the next reboot, as the services would restart.

True, but if you put that in a batch file in the Startup folder, it'll work. I do that to map a stubborn network drive and it works nicely.

Sets the Startup type to Disabled, and stops the service

sc config wuauserv start= disabled

Turn offSystem Restore service

OK, I'm thouroughly confused now.  Does anyone have the short answer for getting all of those accomplished in a single batch file?

GuruGaryCommented:
Yes, my post accomplishes all the tasks in a single batch file.
Use this in a batch file to do the following:
Turn off Windows system restore
Turn off Windows automatic updates
Reboot Computer

@echo off
reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore" /v DisableSR /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v AUOptions /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v AUState /t REG_DWORD /d 7 /f
shutdown -r -f -t 2
