Windows 7: How to disable System Restoration through registry?

How to disable System Restoration through registry?

Is there any way to disable System Restoration (My computer->Properties->Advanced Configurations->System Protection->Configure) using regedit tool?

I need this because I work on a factory and we have an automated windows 7 installation with an unnatended configuration file. This installation comes with our softwares stress tests and meantimes they perfom automatic reboots without any user interaction. In some reboots (yeah, it's intermitent) the system just crash entering in a system restore mode.

I need this by the registry to I can put in automated process because we made about 4000 machines per day.

Thanks in advance.

Are you talking about the black and white screen that comes up when the system restarts?
