Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Thank you for the replies guys. Long story short I got so fed up with the issue that I formatted Windows and now it's fine!

I've done one of my own machines recently for the same reason, fed-up-ness. But most of the folks here know a lot more here than the Help Desk at MS.

I could not figure out WHAT was causing my system to reboot at 1:00AM.

There may be a task that is deliberately killing Explorer.exe on an hourly basis on OP's machine. ☹️, so they'll have to go through all of the scheduled tasks to find it.
