Hi, First time on' so please guide me if I slip up.
My original 40G Western Digital hard drive died and was replaced with a new 80G WD HDD and reinstalled WinXP Home edition with all the appropriate updates. While every thing else is functioning ok, there are two problems when the PC sits idle for long periods (one or more hours) and when the Power Options are set to 'Turn off Monitor' and 'Turn off Hard disks'. The first is that after an idle period I must reboot each time to get my DSL connection activated and the second is that clock in the system tray loses up to four hours on the hour digit only and requires resetting each time. The only conflict on my PC exists in the Internet Properties Dialog box under '(!) Phishing filter' and I cant relate that to the problem.
Thanks

It sounds like 2 issues exist.

One is that after the reinstall, the default power saving options are also turning off your network adapter (hence the need to reboot), the other is that the time zone is set incorrectly, hence the 4 hour difference whenever Windows does it's automatic time update against a time source.
