My computer is stuck in the past! I cannot amend the date which is now at
Novemebr 11 2000.When I try to alter it I get this message:-

'An error occurred while Windows was working with the Control Panel file
C:/WINDOWS\SYSTEMTIMEDATE.CPL.'

I replaced the file using Run - SFC ( I use Win98 ) but this had no effect.

Hi Jim,

You should also be able to change the time and date setting in the BIOS or by typing 'time' and 'date at the command prompt.
