Hi there.
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!!

    hi there,
    you can download a hex editor free from the net, you say it worked first time? It sounds to me like one of your staff knows your admin password and/or bios password or is far more clued up with computers that they let on.
    Change all the admin and bios passwords, log in to the admin account and try again, if the computer has a chassis lock or a hole for one is suggest you lock it with a padlock as the bios password can be wiped by shorting pins on the motherboard.
    Good luck with it and please post back with the results if you need any more help.

    regards

How do I change the time on my TIMEX T307S clock?


Hello
To adjust time follow this.

Auto-Set Time and Date Settings

This model is equipped with the Auto-Set feature, meaning that the time and date have been programmed at the factory

and will already be set when you first plug the model in. Auto-Set will automatically adjust the time and date settings for

daylight-saving time and leap years. Auto-Set is programmed for Eastern Standard Time; if you do not live in this time zone,

you can easily switch the setting to one of six other time zones.

1. To change your time zone setting, press and hold the 8 Time Zone Button. The current Auto-Set Time Zone in the

lower-right-hand corner of the display will flash for approximately ten seconds, after which the display will revert to the

standard clock display.

2. While the Auto-Set Time Zone is flashing, press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to select your time zone.

The display will show each zone's current time setting. There are seven zones to choose from:

Auto-Set Time Zones

Z-01 Atlantic Standard Time

Z-02 Eastern Standard Time

Z-03 Central Standard Time

Z-04 Mountain Standard Time

Z-05 Pacific Standard Time

Z-06 Alaskan Standard Time

Z-07 Hawaiian Standard Time

3. Find your time zone, then press the 4 Enter Button or wait about ten seconds for the clock to beep twice and the

setting to lock into place.

Manual Time and Date Settings

1. To change your time setting, press and hold the J Time Set Button so that the clock display begins flashing.

2. While the display flashes, press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the time. Hold a button for a few

seconds to set the time rapidly. Be sure to set the correct AM/PM time, shown by the PM Indicator.

3. After setting the time, press the 4 Enter Button or wait about ten seconds for the clock to beep twice and the setting

to lock into place.

4. To change the calendar, press and hold the 9 Date/7-5-2 Button until the display shows the flashing year.

5. Press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the current year. When you have selected the year, press the

4 Enter Button, then use the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the month/day.
6. After you have set the date, press the 4 Enter Button or wait for the display to beep twice and lock into place.

System date is incorrect ... How do i reset the system date


Hello, 

The easiest way to do this is by double tapping the time in the Taskbar. It would be in the bottom right hand corner.

This would then bring up the "Date/Time Properties" where you can set the correct date, time, Time Zone and select the tick-box "Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving".

What you have to remember though is if the terminals batteries are discharged and it cold boots then it will loose the time settings.

Hope this helps.
If you need any more help then please do not hesitate to contact us:-

Certificate problem


Hello,

Please check your clock on your machine to see what the date and time if it is correctly configured.
You might also be using a third party software that is conflicting with SSL secured websites. Try uninstalling or disabling the latest software that you might have kept may be that could be the cause.

Please do vote for me if you liked my solution.
