Hi Sharath,

Disable "System Restore Service" service on client machines.
I think you already has a script that read files for computer names and disable mentioned service.

Does this just stop or restart

I get this in the file


SERVICE_NAME: srservice
        TYPE               : 20  WIN32_SHARE_PROCESS  
        STATE              : 3  STOP_PENDING
                                (STOPPABLE, NOT_PAUSABLE, ACCEPTS_SHUTDOWN)
        WIN32_EXIT_CODE    : 0  (0x0)
        SERVICE_EXIT_CODE  : 0  (0x0)
        CHECKPOINT         : 0x0
        WAIT_HINT          : 0x3a98

Sharath,

I know you wanted a scripting method to do this, but have you seen the method provided by Group Policy to achieve the same? See http://www.theeldergeek.com/re-enable_system_restore.htm (although do it in Group Policy Management  and not through gpedit.msc!)
