Windows 7: Auto Reboot Once Ever Few Days

Auto Reboot Once Ever Few Days

I'm not sure if this is the correct area to put this in but I look at the others and felt this best fit the most.

Anyway, I was looking at trying to do a system reboot on a screensaver system that I made. It just cycles through images and sometimes get suck. After a reboot the system works fine. I was thinking maybe having the system reboot every say 3 days or so and allow it to do it by itself with out me rebooting them all the time. Is there a easy way to do this in Windows 7?
