I have a laptop issue, in that my Windows 7 (64-bit), with latest updates, restarts itself every morning at exactly 12:13:15 AM. This started after uninstalling .NET Framework 4.5, reinstalling 4.0, getting latest updates. Some other applications (Microsoft Lync, TeamViewer) also received updates.
One evening, I stopped all non-system-critical processes and services and the system did NOT restart itself. How can I track down which process/service is causing the restart?
Event Viewer shows only this:
- <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
<Provider Name="USER32" />
<TimeCreated SystemTime="2014-05-12T05:13:14.000000000Z" />
<Security UserID="S-1-5-20" />
<Data>No title for this reason could be found</Data>
<Data>NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE</Data>
I have checked the task scheduler, and there are no tasks there that run at that time. Checked the log of the scheduled tasks as well. As to the restore, I am not sure which update is causing the issue, there were many. Since I know that by stopping all but system critical tasks and services will stop the reboot, I am stopping certain ones each night to remove those from the possible offender list. I will stop the Task Scheduler this evening to make sure it really isn't a scheduled task causing this.
Does anyone know of any tools to log all task/service performance, possibly to log what occurs at that given time each morning?
