Some time ago I have installed a program that turns my computer off every day at 730 pm, so I can not work any more and go home, but I need to turn this program off and remove it. It is counter productive now. The problem is I do NOT remember what that program was and where did I store it and how to turn it off, but it works like a clock. The only indication is that it gives a pop-up saying my pc will be shut down in less than 30 seconds and then it does what it should.

 

Please help me find and remove this program.

 

Many Thanks
