Can someone please tell me why all the files in/on my computer are accessed everday at 12:00 AM. No matter where I am in Windows Explorer, if I bring up any file and show the date accessed in the list they all change every day as Accessed at 12:00 AM. Even a file I just created in Word was accessed yesterday at 12:00 AM.

Thank you :tazz:

Running backup?
Whenever you back up a machine, it sets an archive bit

Antivirus scan?
AV checker cheks it

Malware scan?
see above

Thanks Gerry :)

No I'm not running backup! Well, I don't think I am. (Please note my name, could be synonymous with hair colour!). How do I check if I am? (Running backup, I mean, not blonde!).
Malware and antivirus are not on 12:00 AM schedule. And I checked the scheduled tasks list (it's empty!).

Any other ideas? :tazz:
