Windows 7: Disable Automatic System Restore Point Creation?

Disable Automatic System Restore Point Creation?

Is it possible to disable automatic System Restore Point creation (to prevent Windows to create restore points daily and after (re)installing programs / Windows updates)?

I want to manually create System Restore Points because automatic creation uses too much space, because I install new programs very often.

Note that I still want to use System Restore. I don't want it to be automatic.

Have a look at the settings in task scheduler.

Thanks for answers. Also, I found out that turning off System Protection is important if you don't want automatic creation of System Restore Points. Here is how:
