date Problem

  Fairytale 15:27 20 Feb 2005

Running Windows XP Professional but the Month is wrong. In Adjust Time/Date the month pull down menue only shows 12 * 1 Each 1 obviously represents the name of the month and I have been able to set it to the correct date but Windows just cannot differentiate between all these 1s. Any subscription service, e.g. Norton just get plain confused. Saving files is of course a nightmare too as Windows doesn't know what date it is, so has reverted to date stamping everything in hours and minutes which is not very helpful at all 09:17 21 Feb 2005

Could it be possible that Windows was installed using American English. This would result in the date format being different i.e month first followed by date.

Unfortunately that would have been too easy. I have not been able to find any reference to this problem in the knowledge base and my IT manager at work was out one day, looked at it and couldn't explain it either. All the months in the pull down list are number 1 not alphabetic as they should be

Running a System File Check, just in case

You need to check Regional Settings First in Control Panel Then adjust the time date etc
