View Full Version : System Time error!

01-01-2011, 09:04 PM
My computer made a loud noise like "CHUNG" then a message popped up saying -

"Cannot retrieve privileges from Windows.
System time not changed."

The clock in the system tray says the correct time. I went to "Date an time" in the control panel and everything there is in order.

What could the trouble be?:confused:

there was an update from microsoft regarding 2011 time causing errors. could just need an update. could be a virus.

May have been trying to update the time automatically from an internet time server, was unable to complete that for some reason (corrupt exe/host/registry/etc file, or summat (not connected?)), possibly do some virus and/or system testing (e.g. memory, HDD SMART test/chkdsk etc).
Tried a quick Google (http://www.google.co.nz/search?q=Cannot+retrieve+privileges+from+Windows.+ System+time+not+changed&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a), nothing found pertaining, perhaps a deeper search?
"Chung"= sound for system error?

Had an automatic update earlier today.
I went directly to windows update site, no luck there either.

Restarting again sorted it.
