I switched over to Windows 8.1 when I got my new custom built computer a couple weeks ago. Since then Windows keeps changing my time zone making the clock off. Also it keeps changing my default programs. Any ideas how to resolve this annoying issue?

The first thing which immediately comes to mind is to replace the CMOS battery.


Yep... I know it's a new build, but you have no way of knowing how long that battery has been sitting around before being installed in that motherboard.  It's an inexpensive solution, so if this isn't the problem you will have less than $5.00 US invested.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
