Troubleshoot Computer Clock

HP Pavilion Vista clock reverting to 1899
Vista Home Premium
HP Pavilion (14 Mos. Old)

For the last week (Wk of 1/11-1/18/2009) my computer clock intermittently reverts to December 1899.

Have synched the clock several times and it will be OK for a few hours or a day, and then while I am using it, or sometimes when I start up, or when PC has been idle and I return, it will be back to 1899.

Have run Anti Virus, Spybot etc. and still having this problem.
Can anyone help me as to what could be the problem?

Was not able to find my PC in the list below

    Will hold your "FIX" until problem happens again. Has not happened in a couple of day, but your solution is certainly where I am going should the clock revert again.

    Thanks so much for a very concise and great idea.

To me that still seems that you may have a virus. A lot of times when you run Norton, Macafee, Spybot the virus knows what you are trying to do and hides it self.
Sometimes you have to use a kinda unknown Anti-Virus program (unknown as in, a lot of people really never heard of it). If I was you I would try this program and run a full scan.

The Program I want you to run is called Malwarebytes, it is a free program.

Steps to run it.

1. install (everything is set as defualt, so just keep pressing next or ok)

2. Run a full scan in normal mode (not Safe mode)

3. You should see something that says Objects infected (if that turns red, and there are number next to it. That is how many virus the program has found) If it does find virus please continue to the next steps, if not you are all set.

4. Once the scan is all done, you will see a button that pops up saying "scan done successful" press the ok button to continue.

5. Now on the bottom right you will see will it says "show results", press that button

6; Next you will see on the bottom Left "delete infected files" make sure you press that button.

7. You should see a note screen pop up, that is just telling you what the software found, just "X" out of that, restart your computer and you should be find.

8. after you restart your computer, the time might still be set as 1899, just fix it and then you should not have that problem again.

I hope this works for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

I started download for windows vista update, its gave me message its service pack didnt install so its reverting changes back to not turn off computer . that was 3 hours ago, computer keeps rebooting its...

Hold down the f8 key while booting up.This will put it in safe mode.

once there, try setting the restore point to last known good configuration.

This should bring you back to before the update.

Vista service pack 2 is very large and can take awhile to install.

Try updating the service pack again. After you get running.
