In Active Directory Users and Computers, navigate to Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, System, System Restore.
Double-click "Turn off System Restore," set it to Enabled, then click OK.
Close the policy and exit Active Directory Users and Computers.
The changes will take effect on the next policy refresh.
