Question about Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition for PC
We have a clocking in system here at my work place. But some people are adjusting the times to get out earlier and is causing us major issues. I have tried to search everywhere for the answer but not having much luck. Im not sure weather this is possible in Winows 98, where as in Xp u can disable the changing of time and date. Any ideas???
Thanks in advance
This is the best i can remember about Win98
In Win98, rename the timedate.cpl to _timedate.cpl from your system folder and open command.com in a hex editor and go to the location that is on or around 0x010b36. there you will see a table of DOS commands.
simply rename "time" (and/or "date") to something else (as long as it's exactly 4 characters long!). then bring up a new DOS window and you will see that it only accepts your new command for changing the time and date.
This method, in combination with (renaming timedate.cpl), and
making sure that your BIOS settings are password protected, should prevent virtually anyone who is a non-guru from changing the system time.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

results in fixing the date and time on your computer, double click on the
taskbar at the bottom of your Windows screen. This is located on the bottom
right-hand corner of your screen. The date and time control panel on your
computer will automatically open.
Double click the clock. A smaller date and time properties menu will open as soon as you have double clicked on the time at the bottom of your Windows computer screen. To set the date and time on your personal computer, the process is quite simple. You can use your mouse to click on the correct day, month, and year. You will also see an image of a clock on the right-hand side of the properties menu that will display the corrected time that you have entered. When you are pleased with the corrections, simply click on the OK button on your computer screen. Most modern computers automatically adjust for daylight savings, but several older models do not. As a result, you will need to update the time as mentioned.
Adjust the time zone on your computer by clicking once on the time zone tab that is displayed on the same properties menu that opened when you clicked on the clock at the bottom of your computer screen. To set your time zone, you can choose the correct time zone from the drop down menu. Use the small arrow to show the options in the time zone menu on your computer. Once again, you can click OK when you are finished. If you choose to have your computer automatically updated for daylight savings, then be sure that the small box at the bottom of the time zone menu is checked.
