For some kooky reason Windows XP will not update or display ANY timestamp at all and i'm curious as to why, I've checked the NtfsDisableLastAccess DWORD value in the registry it is set to default value (0) which means it hasn't disabled the timestamp, but i'm still having this problem. When i recieve messages on Windows Live Messenger, it shows the date but not the time and i really don't know why. Could anyone care to shed some light on this please ?
Thanks in advance.

For some unknown reason i managed to solve my problem. I was hit with virtumonde some time back and it kind of changes your clock to "Virus Alert!" It would seem that the fix to this problem happened to lay in Regional & Language settings. I set back to United Kingdom and voila. :) problem solved. Thanks for help. You may lock this thread.

Oh yeah, I used combofix which allowed me to get my computer to a state where i was able to use other spyware/adware removal software. I haven't had a problem since using combofix etc.. I'm just happy it's fixed now :). Thank you for all your help.

You're welcome :)
Be careful with Combofix, though. It's very powerful program.
