Okay, So I was on my Laptop last week the Date and time were correct then I noticed today My clock was off by an hour and it said PM when it was AM so it was 23 Hours off if you get what I mean. It also said its Sat. But its Friday.
I changed it back to the correct date but I would like to know how this happened.
My Computer is PW Protected and no one knows my pw.
I have Spy sweeper, Ad-aware, and Spybot for my spyware protection and AVG for my Anti-Virus needs
I scan about every two nights. Never find any thing because I keep my computer "clean"

Any Ideas?

Hello, Dafsbro, don't think you have any sort of nasty on the system as this sounds like the tell-tale signs that your motherboard battery (cmos battery) needs replacing.
Local repair shop could do it in a jiffy.

Thanks I'll pop open my Laptop and take a look at my Cmos battery to see what number it is.

This is a problem with your "Time Zone" setting. Make sure it is set to the proper time zones. If it was a problem with your cmos battery, you would get an error at startup saying the time was off. and it would list as 12:00.
