Re-check your time, date and year. Also run malwarebytes or a virus scan. It worked for me.

Double-check your date/time and make sure the year is set correctly. If you're "sure" that it is all correct, you will need to provide more information regarding the symptoms of your problem.

If all else fails, try a startup repair:

or a sytem restore:

How can i solve system calender problem.I cant fix the date and time.


For immediate 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.

Adjust the Properties
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.

Time Zone
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.

Good luck.

I use a HP Pavilion dv6000 with Vista SP1. When I try to install the Vista SP2 I get every time the erro code 800B0100. I never found a solution to that


the most common cause of this is your firewall - you need to disable it whilst installing the update.
depending on the security software you have installed the options are different.
If you are using Windows Firewall: start, settings, control panel Security Center - click on firewall and set to off.
Important - remember to turn it back on afterwards.
If using 3rd party software turn the whole thing off whilst installing the update.
Please let me know if this works for you.

My clock on my desktop is one hour fast,how do I


Double clicking on the clock will open up the properties so you can change the time. Make sure the time zone is set right and that the daylight savings box is checked if you observe daylight savings time.

Clock gadget on windows 7 deleted by error.


In the Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization. Try the Restore desktop gadgets installed with Windows or Add a gadget. I'm not sure if the restore will work; adding a new clock gadget, at worst, would make the computer think you have two loaded (with the clock that is sometimes desirable to check the time in multiple time zones).

I hope this helps.

Unable to update or sychronize with time.windows.com


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.

Some vista doesn't work properly for updates or pc game. Try to install fresh installer for your game, maybe it works properly. The best use for OS windows xp 2.
