Because of the reported stuttering, etc. that happens over time due to a memory leak or whatever, is there a command line I can put in windows scheduler to auto restart xmbc daily? The restart is the only fix for this and there doesnt seem to be much priority given to this issue.
I was going to schedule windows 7 to reboot and already have xbmc shortcut in startup folder, but I thought maybe there is some way to just exit xbmc and restart it.
Auto reboot xbmc?

In Task Scheduler. Go to Create Task (not Create Basic Task!). Under the settings tab, you can find "Stop the task if it runs longer then: xx " So you can make it run for 23 hours and 50 minutes or something.
Or make a taskkill .bat file (Notepad ->save as... -> xbmc.bat) to run as seperate task with something like:
taskkill /im xbmc.exe /f
And run that task just before the start xbmc task.
Just google taskkill and look at the options you can use, like here:
And here is a video, just in case:
