UNKNOWN VIRUS (date & time re-setting)

  Cartner 11:45 27 Mar 2006


Can anyone help. My PC is showing signs of having a virus but after running various virus scans, adware etc. I can't fix it.

The only noticable symptom is that the clock down in the bottom right of the taskbar keeps resetting itselfto random times and months (usually in 2001). No other problems on the PC what-so-ever. but it's really starting to get annoying.

If anyone knows what causes this or how to cure it I'll be eternally gratefull.

Perhaps time for a battery change. About a £1.00 from most outlets!.

Really is that all it'll take?

Forgot to mention it's actually a laptop and not a desktop pc. Hope that doesn't complicate matters.

May be a little harder to get at the battery depending on the make of laptop. CMOS Battery
