Hey, I have been having some troubles with my clock!

I ran ComboFix quite a long time ago, however my clock is messed up still. I have reset it to the correct format, however my programs are still running by "2008-09-21" format. (yyyy-mm-dd) For an example, my f-secure antivirus automatic updates say that webpage filter was updated 2008-09-16. Is there a way to change it back so that all my programs run by the date setting I want? Day, Month / #, year?

Also, I have that same problem with browsers... Half my programs oepn with Avant, half open with firefox, etc..

Thanks for your reply. Apparently, the long-form date was how I wanted it. The short-form date was what was confusing me. It appears that some programs use long-form and some use short-form, while others use a mix of both.

Examples: Long-Form Date - Monday, September 22, 2008
Short-Form Date - 2008-09-22/ 22-09-2008
