My clock is now on 24-hour time-- e.g., 9:50 PM shows up as 20:51. This is causing problems for my professional scheduling software, as my appointments are based on there being am and pm slots. Is there any way I can get the clock to display the way it used to display? There is no such option in the control panel. I recently had a bunch of infections cleaned up by Spyware Doctor. I noticed the problem some time after doing that. (I currently have a log posted to Hijack This.)

Any one have any ideas of how to restore the clock to the way it was? The time is correct and it is synchronized to Windows, and the date is correct. Thanks for any help. :thumbsup:

Try this. Start > Control Panels > Regional and Language Settings > Customize > Time Tab. In the time format field it should have:

h:mm:ss (12 hour time)
h:mm:ss tt (12 hour time with am/pm)
hh:mm:ss (24 hour time)
hh:mm:ss tt (24 hour time with am/pm)
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
