    Hi, i'm a bit stuck with this one and could use some help.

    Basicly a friend had a virus on her laptop and also a .net 3.5 update would not install, fixed those two problems fine but now i have another one!

    On the login screen (vista) theres 2 accounts and when you click on one to enter the password the button which normaly says "Switch User" now says "sable time stamp. The time service will not update the local system until it is able to synchronize with a time".

    I am presuming its a text string that is missing or corrupted but i cant find it, does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks for reading,
    Gav.

    Try running this from an admin command prompt: "sfc /scannow".
