You just need to purge the files that are in your system restore. Depending on what OS you are running, here are the instructions.....

Windows Me:

1. Close all open programs.
2. Right-click My Computer on the Windows desktop, and then click Properties.
3. Click the Performance tab.
4. Click File System.
5. Click the Troubleshooting tab.
6. Check Disable System Restore, click OK, and then click Close.
7. Click Yes to restart. This disables the System Restore feature and will purge the contents of the _RESTORE folder when the system is restarted.

Windows XP:
1. Click Start, and then right-click My Computer.
2. Click Properties.
3. Click the System Restore tab.
4. Check Turn off System Restore.
5. Click Apply, and then click OK.
6. Restart the computer.

Be sure to turn your sytem restore back on, once you have purged the files.
