Windows 7: 72 Hour reboot.

72 Hour reboot.

I hope this is the right spot to post this, anyhow here goes. I'm in an it class and stil have a lot to learn. I was working with norton ghost doing backups and recoverys for a lab and when I would boot with the recovery disk it would give a warning stating that a "Microsoft security feature" Would cause the pc to automatically reboot after 72 hours. My question is this: What is the 72 Hour reboot thing? Is that a default thing for windows seven? If anyone can explain the 72 hour reboot or point me to a good explanation of it, please do so.

Thanks.

Anthony.

I believe it is referring to WinPE auto-restarting after 72 hours time limitation, def not the OS.
