There are no dates showing on anything in my Windows 2000 (SP 4) system.
When I view the contents of a folder, it shows the correct time, but no date at all.
When I look at the properties of anything, it shows the correct times (created, modified, accessed) without the dates, although sometimes it show "boxes" for the access time.
When I look at the system clock (date/time applet), for the date it shows 1. That's right, no month, just a 1. If I open the pulldown list, it shows 12 lines of 1s. If I select the 4th "1", it shows the month layout for April.
If I look at an event, the date column has a blank value.
If I sort a folder by its date column, it sorts by the time within the date, so the dates are there, just not displayed.
The date and time in the bios is correct. The time shown in W2K is correct, just cannot get a date to show for anything.
Does anyone know what controls this? I've found the entries in the registry, but they all look fine.
Update: When I go into the Control Panel - Regional Settings, everything is fine until I click on the Date tab. Then it pops up with a box saying "Error - One of the files on your computer may be corrupt or missing. To replace the file, reinstall Windows." I can't believe I have to reinstall W2K just because one file is missing/corrupt (yet I can change the date values, like "/" to "-", and it keeps the new values). I just can't find which file controls this.
