Well... I can't find where it could be.
From beginning... The Issue:
Everyday, at precisely 10:30 a countdown window pops out. I can cancel it, but if I won't then when timer reaches 0 (counts from 10), windows follows standard shutdown procedure. My PC is on 24/7 so if I'll walk out and miss the countdown, whatever I was working on is gone.
It's not in the bios, as some suggested, it is in windows.
I checked task scheduler, but I couldn't spot any daily shutdown tasks. Maybe I missed it, but I went through the list several times. It would be nice if there were some search option.
No event is logged in event viewer. Scanned system with MBAM just to eliminate possibility of an infection.
I don't have ANY antiviral programs running (I've had more problems with anti-viruses then any infection I have ever had.) I do run Commodo firewall, but every other thing in the package like resident protection etc. has been disabled.
Windows update is set to never check for updates, I only install any updates when I specifically request it myself. I generally hate anything that says "automated".
I just can't figure out what is sending that shutdown request. Can you guys help me out. You have been helpful in the past with some minor issues, so I'm counting on you.
Thanks in advance.
Oh, one more thing I've noticed in event viewer this...
"An attempt was made to query the existence of a blank password for an account."
something, or someone seemed to query if I have any users without password.
It queried Guest,administrator,and HomeGroupUser$
There were few attempts with different times.... was somebody "fishing"?
I also get this regularly:
Special privileges assigned to new logon.
Security ID: S-1-5-18
Account Name: SYSTEM
Account Domain: NT AUTHORITY
Logon ID: 0x3e7
Should I be worried?
