    For some odd reason, I cannot change the date in Windows.

    Right now (April 14), my system is reading April 17. After I change it to the correct date and hit apply, it changes itself back to April 17 after a few seconds.

    What gives? Anyone know what's going on?

    Thanks

    OS: Win XP

    Check the Date/Time applet and make sure you have the correct time zone selected.

    I don't think the wrong time zone would make a difference of three days.

    Can you get to your CMOS and change it from there.

    That's what happens when one tries to read the boards without one's glasses. :eek:
