The system clock on my mothers old computer is wildly inaccurate at best. I have read that maybe anti virus software can interfere with such things. I will try un-installing AVG 8 incase this is the problem. The computer has a brand new CR2032 battery installed the correct way, I'm assuming I'd know if it were inserted incorrectly. It is inserted with writing upwards, having said that the mobo is an old K7M slot A affair so maybe it's jst worn out.
