Default CMOS battery and the date..

Sorry CF i know i never stop asking questions but i'm in a jam!
I took out my CMOS battery several times two or so weeks ago, while trying to fix my computer. I just realized the date is off, because i have about 4 things that need updating/authorization with the correct date..

I tried to change it in the BIOS but of course the day of the week was locked.. the 26th=Friday, 27th=Sunday

So if anyone knows what to do i would be so so gracious
