Free Auto Reboot Software

The free auto reboot software is a small software that reboots your server / desktop at a configurable time with a configurable frequency.

This software does a simple job which can keep your servers healthy. A daily / weekly reboot will help keep the memory clear and windows healthy.

The program also detects critical windows event logs and emails them to the system admin using SMTP authentication keeping you updated on impending software / hardware problems.

This was developed with .Net 2.0 as an internal tool for Pulse engineers and has been deployed on 1000s of servers world wide.

The software is stable and has a very small footprint without any unnecessary features, simple auto reboot!

No support is available for the software but suggestions are always welcome to support@pulsesolutions.com.
