  1. Does anyone know how to set a time daily for ytour computer to shutdown all the way, or after a certain period of time without use?

    I have a computer and people share it at home but always leave it on. I like to shutdown to clear all the mem etc and disconnect threats from the internet.

    I use Windows XP Pro.

    I am looking for a tweak or a program (free if possible!) that will do this.

    Do a Search at PCworld .com or ZDnet.com. both of these sites do tests /reviews etc. They will warn for Adware in Free apps and their direct Downloads are clean.
