Hello!

I am looking for a way not to allow Windows (I am using
Windows ME version) to make some sort of backups to registry/or
backups of system configuration. I remember that awhile ago in
my computer/system/performance folder there was an option to disable this automatic saving but now I cannot find it anymore.
This is important for me because I am writing to harddisk a very fast audio-video stream and while doing so suddenly Windows starts some sort of harddisk activity which isnt related to my task and that's what brings errors and need to restart my task from the scratch.
I suspect that Windows is doing that autosave once in awhile, so I want to disable that (of course if my suspicion is correct).

My PC is based on CPU Intel PII-266 with 64 Mb RAM.

Thanks in advance.

If you mean the system restore feature you can turn it off here.

1. Right click the My Computer icon on the Desktop and click on Properties.
2. Click on the Performance tab.
3. Click on the File System button.
4. Click on the Troubleshooting tab.
5. Put a check mark next to 'Disable System Restore'.
