    Have you tried clicking on the clock in the taskbar and in the new window Adjusting the time and date.



    Also try Restore again to before this happened when the clock and cd was working.

    Download CDgone to your desktop.

    Right click and choose Extract All,
    open folder and double click on cdgone.reg file

    Do Not Click on EditReg.reg file

    Restart your PC
