When my PC shuts off on the reboot the time on the botom right hand corner of the screen is reset and way off.

I have to manually reset.

How can I avoid this problem and what it causing it

This is usually a sign that your BIOS battery is going dead and needs replacing.

The BIOS battery lives on the motherboard, and is usally disk shaped, sort of like a nickel. You can purchase them at any computer store for about $7 or so.

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!

If you are running Windows XP, your operating system should be resetting this for you as well. To check your settings, souble click on your clock and then left click on the "Internet Time" tab. Make sure there is a check mark on "Internet Time."
