How do I delete restore points in Win XP?

progs - accessories - system tools - system restore - left hand side - sytem restore settings and click in switch off restore. Dont know why you would want to this is the best thing about winme and xp. If you need to clear something out like a virus make sure you put it back on again afterwards. This has got me out of deep dodo on a couple of occasions.

I meant how do I delete old restore points which I won't ever need and I assume they are taking up disk space.

Right click on hard drive, click on Disk Cleanup, then chick on tab More Options, Clean up... for System Restore, it will then ask if you want to delete all your restore points up to the last one. Click on yes. Saves you tons of space.

Win XP only saves restore points up to the space allocated for the purpose once that space is full it will drop the oldest one, you can set how much space you want to allocate to this by going into the system restore window and clicking on "system restore settings" on the left hand pane.
