This thread has helped me as well. Had the same issues.
I still have one minor one. My clock reads military time.
i.e. 20:16 at present. I've done the basic stuff to fix it, and apply.
But it's still military.

What am I missing?

Love this forum,

Hello ironjack, I have split you to a tpic of your own. It is always the best way as it can become confusing replying to multiple posters in the same thread.
Not certain what you've tried so try this.. on an XP machine...

Start> Control Panel>
select Date,Time,Language and Regional Option
select Change the Format of Numbers .....
under Regional Options tab >click Customize
Click the Time tab
in the Time Format box, select .. h:mm: ss tt
Clck Apply then OK

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

If there are no more problems or signs of infection, you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
Tips to protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection:
• "Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe".
• "How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!".
• "Best Practices - Internet Safety for 2008".
• "Hardening Windows Security - Part 1 & Part 2".
• "IE Recommended Minimal Security Settings" - "How to Secure Your Web Browser".

• Avoid gaming sites, underground web pages, pirated software sites, and peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs. They are a security risk which can make your computer susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, exposure of personal information, and identity theft. Many malicious worms and Trojans spread across P2P file sharing networks, gaming and underground sites. Users visiting such pages may see innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and Flash ads that install viruses, Trojans and spyware. Ads are a target for hackers because they offer a stealthy way to distribute malware to a wide range of Internet users. The best way to reduce the risk of infection is to avoid these types of web sites and not use any P2P applications.

I have XP home and am having this same issue with the Militray time, but I don't have options for "language and "change the format of numbers". Any other ideas on how to fix the time?

Depending on your settings (classic view) it may show as Regional and Language Options.

Or you can click on Start > Help and Support Center and in the Search box type: change time display
Press Enter or click the green arrow.
Under Suggested Topics click "Change the way your computer displays the time" for instructions.
