Re: Disabling users from changing system time & date?
If you're the administrator you should be able to set user permissions through the control panel. I had a Windows 2000 which had some features comparable to a 98. Most likely you will have to enter the category known as, "Administrative Tools" located within the, "Control Panel."
In this region you can change security policies, overall computer settings, and user settings (At least that's how it was on my 2000). I don't know which option you need to change to disable non-administrative users from changing time, however playing around with some of the settings might help you figure out which one it is.
NOTE: Make sure you don't change any of the settings for administrative users! If you do you might not be able to access the control panel or change administrative settings in the future.
Since I'm uncertain about this working with a 98, contact me again later notifying me if the above worked or not. I'll see if I can help you resolve this.

Hello ! This system-halt message occurs when a process (in kernel-mode and not user mode) or driver tried to access a memory address to which it did not have permission. The most common cause is an incorrect or corrupted pointer that references an incorrect address in the memory. When this occurs in a user-mode application, it generates an access
violation. When it occurs in kernel mode, it generates a STOP 0x0000000A
If you encounter this error while upgrading to a newer version of
Windows, it might be caused by a device driver, a system service, a
virus scanner, or a backup tool that is incompatible with the new
version. This error usually occurs after the installation of a buggy device
driver, system service, or BIOS. To resolve it quickly, restart your
computer, and press F8 at the character-mode menu that displays the
operating system choices. Choose the "Last Known Good Configuration" option. This option is
most effective when only one driver or service is added at a time. Usually, from my experience this rarely happens, but it is a buggy DRIVER installed by you. Get back with more details please if it still happens. (Tip : Try to re-install all drivers using the manufacturer's website).
First, you need to have administrative rights to change date and time.
Check whether you are part of admin group or not. To check click on start and click on run, type "control userpasswords2" and hit enter. It will display user information, make sure you are part of administrators group. If not, try logging from administrator and run the same command
"control userpasswords2" and click on your user name and click on properties, go to to group membership tab and select others and then select administrators. This will make you part of administrators group. If this doesnt solves you problem try the CMOS Settings.
Try changing the date & time from CMOS settings. To go to CMOS Setup, restart the system and there will be options highlited to go to setup.. ( eg press F10 Steup ) and play around only date and time setup. Rest if not known to you, do not change anything.
START->CONTROL PANEL->DATE,TIME,LANGUAGE.....->Change format
of numbers,dates and time. Under regional and language option click
customize option and select time tab under customize regional options . There would be an option to change date, time change format. Click that and it would fix the issue.
you need admin\administrator rights to change anything on vista. it is suppose to be more secured than Windows XP.
administrator /user is power user rights, which don't have rights to change system setting, but you do have rights to install certain program.
login into the machine as administrator and provide the corect password.
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.
Note: Disabling UAC will lead to a less secure system, so do it at your own risk.
here is how you can do it.
Open up Control Panel, and type in "UAC" into the search box. You'll see a link for "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off":
On the next screen you should uncheck the box for "Use User Account Control (UAC)", and then click on the OK button
You'll need to reboot your computer before the changes take effect, but you should be all done with annoying prompts.
