How do I disable system, restore when installing software and updates

As the title says how do I keep system restore enabled for scheduled/manual runs but disabled for when windows update is ran and when I install software.

There is a guide on this forum to the reverse (disable on schedulers only), I want it the other way round.

Thanks

System restore is either on or off, that`s it.

Why would you want it disabled when installing software, that`s one of it`s main purposes.

I have system restore enabled for various drives for file snapshots, everytime I run an installer I get a 2 min wait with lots of i/o thrashing due to all those snapshots been updated, I am happy with weekly snapshots on a schedule but no need on every installer.
