Windows 7: Restarts overnight?

Restarts overnight?

All right, I have been experiencing my system restarting overnight for some reason since I put in my 7850. I'm not totally sure it is the culprit but maybe certain software I have. Would HDDScan do this by any chance?

I noticed the restart because I had a Steam chat with 2 others left open which was gone when I woke up, but I have never experienced sudden restarts during heavy 3d gaming nor during the day. What gives?

Edit: I may suspect it was Windows Update so the above might not be relevant.

It could be windows update.
Check the history of recently installed updates.

I noticed it was just a Defender (Important rating) update this morning but I did not see a "Windows has installed updates" in the lower right corner when I checked this morning. Also, I have it set to download but not install until I say so, so why would it override my settings like that?
