Hi, my daughter has a very new Acer Aspire 5742 Intel Core i5 CPU M480 @2.67 GHZ 64 bit. The time changed so I tested to see if it was the CMOS battery by leaving it on. The time changed but didn't change back when I restated it. I think this means it isn't the CMOS battery but a virus. Can you tell me what to do now? Thanks so much!

1. Right-click the system time in the lower right corner of the screen and select Adjust Date/Time
2. In click the Change Time Zone button.
3. If the selected Time zone is wrong, reset it.
4. If the Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Savings time is set incorrectly, fix it.
5. OK out of everything.
