Hi,

Appreciate if anyone could advise me on this persistent problem that I am experiencing.

Everytime when I start up my com or when I execute the Task Manager, the date and time will be automatically reset to 29th Jan 2000, 12.00am.

I've tried running virus scan using Trend Micro Office Scan with the latest updates as well as Trend Micro's online virus scan Housecall. I've also scan using Ad aware 2007 but the problem still persist.

Any advice on this matter?

Try this:

right click on clock(lower right hand corner) click adjust date/time>make sure zone is correct>then click internet time tab>should say this computer is set to synchronize
with 'time.windows.com', if not then click change settings (check synchronize with internet time server if not checked) then click update now.

Hope this fixes your problem.

Hello gihon,

What is your operating system: Windows XP, Vista, etc. Different systems have different methods of doing things.

Also how old is the PC. It could be the battery.
