How to Turn Off System Protection by registry (regedit)

Is there any way to disable System Protection (My computer->Properties->System protection->[choose hard disk drive or partition]->Configure->check dot TURN OFF SYSTEM PROTECTION ) using regedit tool?

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

Thanks in advance.

Solution Yet?

This question has been open for just over a year, did you ever find an answer to your issue? I'm looking to push out a group policy that will disable system restore but that itself does not turn off file protection for a drive. If it is enabled already, group policy will disable the ability to make changes to system protection but it does not disable it. Let me know if you found a registry setting to turn off the settings.
