OS = Windows XP

My windows clock is constantly changing. After reading some of the other forum posts, I replaced the CMOS battery. However, this morning I turned the computer on and the date was January 2, 2000 and the time was 1:18 AM.

Ironically, I had changed the format to 24-hour time -- that was maintained, but the time itself (and the date, obviously) went backwards.

A virus, perhaps?

Perhaps a virus.

Are you sure you replaced it with a known good battery? New it should be 3 volts plus a little more.

Thanks for your reply -- The battery I just installed was brand new.
