Default i need serious help

hi all it seems that my system clock has stuffed up after running a program and it is set to 26th of October 2014 and when i change it back to the correct date it automatically goes back to that date and a random time. i deleted the file that caused and restarted my computer and still doesn't work. i have no viruses/spyware on my computer as i just scanned it.

any ideas?

if nothing works i guess ill just have to reinstall my operating system, or is there a chance that i could get my time to work? my antivirus key is outdated (of course) and my undates are screwing up. i have no idea how to fix..

If it is XP you can run sfc /scannow which is the system file checker, it will replace corrupt Windows system files.

If that doesn't work then a repair install would be the way to go.

Try running CCleaner. That may help get rid of any remaining registry files and crap leftover from that program.

At the same time it seems that a lot of people are too quick to just go with a reformat. There are a lot of other options like the ones listed. Just take a step back and think about all the safeties that are installed in windows to fix problems.

Cheers!

Yup, what he said.

A complete reformat is a last ditch option to be used when all other methods have failed.
