    I'm having a problem with my computer. When my desktop themes program (Style XP) starts when I log on, I am getting a message saying 'The registration check failed because the system clock has been rolled back'. I have tried changing the date in the CMOS setup options and also using the command prompt, but they both display the correct date and time. I have also tried doing a system restore but it says there is nothing to change. HELP!!! :confused:

    You're welcome, but what did you do to fix it?

    I am interested in hearing and it will help others who may run into the same problem.

    All I did was re-install the Style XP update I had previously installed and it seems to be working ok.. I guess I'll have to see if my system restore also works now

    Umm more problems now... I can't print anything. I have done a printer self-test and that works but when I go to print a document from Word, Notepad, Wordpad, etc it comes up with an error. Also, my webcam is now no longer working either. Does anyone know how to fix the system clock once it's been rolled back?? Who knows what date it's been rolled back to either..

    Also do this:

    Open Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options -> delete cookies, delete files (select off-line content), clear history. Then click ok.

    When you turn on your PC, go to BIOS and change the clock.

    Well I've found the problem with my printer and webcam.. somehow the OnChip USB Controller in BIOS had been set to All Disabled, so once I changed that to All Enabled my webcam and printer are now working properly. Hopefully I don't find any more probs. Thanks to all...
