Over the last couple of days the date and time has randomly changed?? I was first alerted to this when browsing the net and firefox said a site certificate was out of date, however when looking into this further i found the problem was that the date on xp had changed back a few years.
First thought was the cmos battery, discarded this theory as after monitoring the situation i have noticed that the date and time change whilst the system is in use.
thought maybe the system was losing time but this is also not the case
after monitoring the problem today it seems the clock is hovering around 1800 hrs, i.e. the time runs normally for 1hr or so then i come back and find the time is 1800 ish
Also over the last few days there seem to be a lot more activity with my firewall, most of the alerts i recognise the processes, just wondering if this is also something to do with the problem?
Cant think what the problem is and have searched for similar issues but to no avail.
Any ides much appreciated, could it be virus/spyware/malware?
