Computer reboots by itself at 1 minute past every hour

I have a computer running Win7 PRO.   It was running fine until the customer tried to have someone install security camera software.  Now the computer reboots at one minute past every hour on it's own.   The camera software has been removed and the camera network cable removed.   Any ideas how to stop this?

Can you check if there is a schedule task added... which is running every hour..

Check the programs that are getting started at startup.  Maybe there's something there left over that's doing it.

Try opening the Task Scheduler with both your standard account as well as one with full admin privileges.  Look within the Task Scheduler Library sub-section and see if there is some type of task that is causing this to happen.

Best thing is to role back the computer to before installing the whole thing.
System restore to a day or so before they installed the cam software.
Make sure all the software for the camera card is removed, it's usually more than program, it also involves a driver!

Is there a patten on the things logged on the event viewer around the time before it shuts-down? If yes note it and post back here.
