In Word and Excel, when you type "2000", the program automatically changes it to "2001". I have tried changing the regional date system to .../yyyy, with no avail. I have many workstations, and this is the only one with the problem. I also tried re-installing the program, but nothing seems to work.

With both of those programs closed, I would try running these two command lines from the Start-Run:

regserver /winword.exe

regserver /excel.exe

I tried this, but windows won't recognize regserver... any other suggestions?
Thank you.

Double-click the clock in the bottom, right-hand corner of your PC. What year does the date show?
