Automatic Reboot

Hello All,

I am new to creating batch files on windows so this may be a stupid question, but here goes...

I need to set a Windows XP computer to reboot every morning at say 1:00 am.  It is my understanding that something like "at 01:00 shutdown /l /r /y /c" would process such a reboot but I'm not clear on how this would be accomplished every day.  How/where do I store this command and have it run everyday?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Re: Automatic Reboot

You can store the batch script anywhere on the local machine

e.g. C:\myrestartscript.cmd or C:\batch\my_script.cmd

Look at the example on this page

you can also set this up manually in the GUI -> control panel -> scheduled tasks
