Under the internet time tab do you have "Automatically synchronize with an internet timer server" selected?

May or may not be relevant to problem:

You cannot set the date, time, or time zone on your computer

You cannot set the date, time, or time zone on your computer (Updated M$ page)

Depending on how old the PC is, the CMOS battery may be weak, but I would think you would see other symptoms of this other then not being able to reset date backwards. Especially since you were able to set it forwards. I take it the time is correct and just the current date (day/month/year) isn't. Might see if you can't reset this from within the BIOS.
