Computer shuts down

roseluverSeptember 30, 2012

I have Windows 7, at midnight, every night it restarts and I lose what I am working on. How can I stop it from doing this? Where are the settings I need to change? Many thanks!

Sounds like you have a scheduled task running.

Click Start, right click Computer, click Manage.

When you find the offending task, right click and either delete or disable.
