I have a desktop that is rarely used after I rebuilt it about a year ago.  All of a sudden I'm starting to have issues with it where the system clocks keeps getting set to 04/07/2020.  I would update the system time in admin functions, but it would be set back a few days later.  So I decided to update the clock and restart the computer to see if the date would remain, but then I was getting CMOS errors (overclock settings were wrong), but I don't overclock.  I got windows to boot up and the time was still correct.  A few days later when I logged onto my account it was wrong again and my AV was expired.  I figured it was the CMOS battery on the MB I went ahead and put in a brand new one.  When I booted up the CMOS overclock message fired again so I used default settings to get into Windows again and used Admin to set the time again.  This issue is still happening almost 2 weeks later so I scanned my computer with my Kaspersky and it found nothing.  I also loaded Malwarebytes and it didn't find anything either.  I'm not sure if there is a hardware issue causing this or if someone is getting into my router and has figured out how to take control of my computer and is changing the date to shut Kaspersky down.  

 

Anyone have any ideas?

I kept trying to update my CMOS settings, but when I restarted they didn't save.  I was able to use the default settings for the CMOS and then all of the sudden that woudn't won't work anymore either, so I can only assume my motherboard has officially failed and the computer is done.   How hard is it to pull my existing Windows 7 license and move it to a new computer?
