Thanks for your interest. I've been told by those receiving my e-mails that I'm always lagging behind. I realised that every time I "shut down" and rebooted, I was out on my clock that many hours.

Someone suggested my internal round battery must be dead, so is not running the clock when the computer is off, so I've replaced it, but the problem continues.

I am updating the date and time daily by going to "Control Panels", going to "date/time" resetting them accurately; clicking "apply" and then "OK".

What more can I do???

Only thing I know of that would do that is the cmos battery which you say you replaced. double click the time in the bottom right hand side of your taskbar.
This should open up the date/time Check the time zone down the bottom is it set to you local area

Howdy:

Dumb question here but one I have to ask but.. when you installed the CMOS battery, did you put it back in the right way - "+" sign up or down depending on how the old one was when you took it out!!
