Does anyone know how to stop Defender creating daily restore points please? Mine is making about ten a day it seems.

Out off interest, mine does about three a day.

Possibly it depends on how much hard drive space is alloted to restore.

There is a registry fix for this..

Open the Registry editor and make your way to:

HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows Defender/Scan/, create a new REG-DWORD Key called ‘DisableRestorePoint’ and set it to True.

BACKUP your registry as a precaution before useing fix...

You will also need to change permissions for the Defender reagistry key in order to write to it.

Just done the same thing to Defender myself.....full instructions on which key to modify and how to set permissions so you can write to the registry key click here
