Windows 7: Get loged out over night

Have you had a Clean Reinstall lately? Here are steps which are the same for retail to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

I would mark your thread Unsolved to get more help.
At this point, I'm not going to re-install, that would be maddening. I wish I would have done something before Sunday, I could have just restored my entire machine from backup, full Norton Ghost. I reserve installing for new operating systems and 'sometimes' new hardware, depending on the hardware change.

So with that out of the way (sorry, only willing to go so far with this), let's look at some of your other questions.

Well, before those, let's keep a few things in mind:

1. This isn't a sleep or hibernation, nothing seems to be 'waking' and 'restoring where I was at'. Everything that was running was shut down.

2. I don't think it's restarting. While some of the events 'say' that some things have restarted, there are no Event ID 100-110 entries, so it's not physically restarting.

3. I do see an event ID 4647 at 2:29 this morning. Logoff. That is followed by the even logging service shutting down (1100) and then 2 minutes later a few other services started up. Firewall. Interestingly, there's an ID 4608 and it says:

Windows is starting up.

This event is logged when LSASS.EXE starts and the auditing subsystem is initialized.
But it didn't really restart, because it would have logged a boot, no?

Now, to your questions. I have a 'lot' of things running. As I would expect. I install lots of tools, toys, helpers and junk. Pretty sure all of them have been running for much longer than just the past week.

Here's a little album of screenshots.

Avast is my anti-virus (the free one). Plus I have Spybot (purchased) and SUPERAntiSpyware (purchased) running, as well as SpywareBlaster and run Malwarebytes often.

Uncheck everything in msconfig>Startup and msconfig>Services (after hiding MS Services) except your AV. After reboots see what writes itself back in and uninstall it or turn it off in Program Prefs. You want an absolute clean boot with no freeloaders with issues like this.

Change your AV to Microsoft Security Essentials which has fewer issues and doesn't bother you for anything.

Uninstall Spybot which bloated up some years back and isn't recommended by anyone any longer.

Have you had a chance to try this yet?

Also, have you checked your APC logs?

If this response was for me, I already tracked my issue down.

At Greg's suggestion, I got 'out' of this thread (which was already resolved for this person) and made my own. Eventually tracked it down to SUPERAntiSpyware being the culprit.

If your response was for someone else, then I'll walk away quietly. :)

I thought that something had happened to the OP's account and your were he with a different ID. Glad that you sorted it out. Good detective work.
