So, everyday at 1am my WMC decides to shut itself down. I've taken to adding WMC to a program that keeps programs running at all times, but I'd like to figure out why it's shutting down on its own everyday @1am and to stop it.

Do you have optimization turned on in the media center settings?

No, optimization is off, but it doesn't matter. I've had it on before and it still turned off at the same time every day.

Two quick ideas

Is it possible you enabled this a scheduled task when you opted in on getting the latest Electronic Programming Guide for your TV-Tuner?
Check the "Task Scheduler".

Thank you! Not sure how this task was scheduled, but ACS Digital Media themes for windows media center was running FIXMC.Menu's.exe which was crashing it daily at 1am. That was the last lingering issue with my HTPC and it now works flawlessly! TY again.
