I've never known a date to be changed to a year beginning with 3,...what operating system are you using?

Virus for sure

windows xp home no virus was detected with the norton scan

Try going into CMOS setup and have a look at what the clock says as to regard the date time. see if it will let you change it and save settings and reboot to see what happened in the windows clock

OK. What about rebooting and pressing F8, choose last known good config.
