I don't know why but my PC switched to military time and date (date being dd/mm/yy instead of mm/dd/yy)
Itried to switch it back using control panel date and time. I was able to change the time but instead of reading 7:00 PM, it reads 07:00 with NO AM or PM. Have not been able to fix the date at all. I use QuickBooks and other programs with dates and all are reading military date. Please....HELP! I have since disconnected that PC from the internet and scanned it, there were some viruses etc...as far as I know they are gone.

Its good to see that you found some virus, but i'd suggest you get a expert to review a log to double check that your good to go. Lots of virus' have potential to come back.
Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
