Hi,RavinderPanchal
This feature is enabled by default and runs in the background , the only you can do through GP is
enable or disable system restore on all clients which are effected by Group policy
------
1-START>RUN>GPEDIT.MSC
2-local system policy > computer configuration
3-Administrative Templates > System > System Restore
on the righ panel
Double click "Turn off system restore" and set it to one of the right 4 u values:
"not configured" : does nothing and applies the defined local group policy(reverts the default local policy ) , user can manage the system restore configuration.
"enabled" : will disable the system restore and enforce it to clients
"disabled : will enable the system restore and enforce it to clients

after choosing the right value :
1-try "gpupdate /force" command on server side ( your DC)
2-reboot the clients so the policy will update and affect them the in next boot up
Good Luck

hi,
urw,I guess there is no way to create restore point using the GP Standard values
BUT Do not get upset
You can use WSH (Windows scripting Host ) to craete a Logon Script or a resident script to create restore points for you ( I can supply you with a sample for codeing resident wsh scripts if you like.)
