I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The AVG on my Dell thinks the Virus database is out of date even though it has the most current update?

How can I change the date back and what might have caused this to happen in the first place. I've heard of some AVG update problem but didn't find much relevant information on it.

Any suggestion or links would be great.

Thanks,
Andre

Hello ... I have a flash drive attached to my Netgear wireless router that I make backups to and transfer files to and from other computers at home. It was formatted as NTFS and set up in the router about 2 weeks ago. I just noticed yesterday that all the folders in the drive have dates of 2003 -- even new folders I created today. The files inside all seem to be fine, with correct dates.

I am positive the drive did not start out this way. It was functioning normally. Does anyone know what could have caused these weird folder dates and how to prevent this from happening in the future? Is there any way to fix this? Could the backup program I am using be causing this problem? It is Syncback and it is doing automated backups to this drive.

The computer I am using is a new Asus T300 Chi with Windows 8.1.

Any ideas? I am stumped.

A:Folders on a network attached drive show wrong date

It probably isn't the drive but the Router. You may have to enter the Router setup while connected via Ethernet cable and check the date. Check the documentation for the address to use in your browser, something along the line of 192.168.1.1, the last two numbers will vary between brands and maybe between models.

I have some computers I'm currently just managing updates with Windows Update.  A computer will appear to be 'up to date' on patching.  However, if I run something like `wmic qfe list` or `Get-Hotfix` and I get a list of the patches installed
on the computer I will find that of the 9 or so listed for that windows build and time range in the Security Update Guide, only 1 or 2 will actually be installed.  I'm struggling to answer for compliance how I know all the patches that should be installed,
are installed, when the one source I've found for available patches seems to show I'm not up to date, but Windows Update seems to think I am up to date.  Thanks for the help.

Just spent a number of hours trying to resolve a problem with Windows Messenger where my wifes computer reported that the .net Windows Messenger Service was temporily unavailable when she tried to login . Deciding to resort to a roll back of Windows I noticed that the PCs clock was a month out, July instead of August. Correcting the date corrected the problem.

Looks like Windows Messenger needs the PC to have the correct date before it will log in. Is this normal for messenging services? A sensible error message would be helpful.

I use the search box in the top LH corner of an Explorer window to search for files modified on a certain date.

For example, I searched for files modified in My Documents on the current day's date .....29th October at the time. There is a file I KNOW has been modified because I have been working on it all day. The search returns 3 files, but not the one in question. I then search for files modified the day before, 28th October, and it turns up on the list, at the right it gives the date as 28th October. I right click on the file, choose file properties, and it shows date modified 29th October, last modified 5 minutes ago.

Today, 30th October, I check again, and again it doesn't appear on the list of files modified 29th October (I haven't worked on it yet today). It still shows up if I search for files on 28th October, and again the file properties box shows date modified 29th October.

Yet some other days it shows up on the current day's search correctly.

Both the file type (Word Doc) and location are included in the index for searching, and the index is shown as being complete when I do the search.

What is causing this hit and miss behaviour?

This is my son's computer. I mention this as it is a fairly unfamiliar machine to me. It is a Dell Latitude D620 running Windows XP Home SP3 with an Intel T2300 @ 1.66GHz and 0.99 GB of RAM (odd number, yes?).

I've run the avast! virus scanner, also Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware free version, we have Spyblaster installed, and I've run CCleaner.

You might need to adjust your Windows display settings. Open display settings in Control Panel, and then try lowering your screen resolution and color quality settings." I have tried adjusting the display settings every possible way and even clicked the web help on that pop-up to try and resolve this to no avail.

It doesn't make sense to me that I should be getting these error messages. I have more than a year left on my PC-cillin subscription, so it definitely should not be out-of-date.

I was talking with my friend and she told me to up update my laptop to the the Anniversary update. But, when I go into my update settings, it tells me that Windows is up to date, and I can confirm that I don't already have the Anniversary update. I did perform the "check for updates" option but it still came with the same result.

I tried searching online but there was no luck. Hoping an expert could help me solve why my laptop is not letting be update.

A:Windows is up to date, but I don't have the Anniversary Update

I think Microsoft were gradually upgrading computers in phases, rather than all at once, so perhaps they haven't enabled yours yet. That said, they were supposed to be doing new hardware, and I notice my really old laptop (upgraded all the way from XP bit-by-bit) updated itself when I switched it on this week.

You can force it to upgrade if you like - see this tutorial: Windows 10 - Upgrade Installation
Step 4 links to the Microsoft website which contains a link to start the upgrade; alternatively you can download the ISO installer using later steps in that tutorial.

A word of caution - if Microsoft haven't enabled your machine yet, there may be good reason.
If you want to upgrade yourself I would take the opportunity to make a backup image (I use Macrium Reflect but other tools are available) before starting an upgrade.

You should still be getting security patches and updates and if I'm honest there isn't much in the Anniversary Update which makes it a 'must have' for me, so the other option is to wait a little longer.

A:Outlook uses wrong date

Most likely, your user has dd MMMM yyyy set as the date format under Start-Settings-Control Panel-Regional Settings, Date tab. Whether it's his short or long date, I'm not sure. Generally, here in the US, they would be mm/dd/yyyy and can be selected from the dropdown or the appropriate format typed in, such as I had to do to duplicate the behavior on the short date field.

Also though, I got to looking and realized not only are my codecs creation dates wrong, but almost EVERY single one of my running tasks, loaded modules, drivers, etc. creation dates that my system information lists are also 12/31/79 too! Any Clue? I dont know what would be the best way for me to correct all of them or how much is it going to affect me. Any Ideas...
Anyone...
Hmmmmm.

Thank You to anyone who can shine any light on this for me!:

Ok here's the deal.

A friend's clock kept getting out of synch and was causing problems since many of her programs rely on the date (accounting). Anyhow, obviously the first thought was that the battery on the mobo was dead/dying and needed to be replaced. After doing that I left assuming everything would be copacetic.

But no. That wasn't the problem. I'm going to run a check for viruses but I have a feeling that's not it. Any other suggestions?

I just found my receipt for my laptop and I purchased it on Sept. 25, 2011. Yet, Dell is saying my laptop is out of warranty as of June 20th. I thought it was a year from the purchase date? Can someone help me please?

A:Given Wrong Warranty Date

If the system was purchased at retail, you must register it.

If it was purchased from an individual - EBay, etc., - contact the seller.

HINTS FOR YOU.





There is a little monthly calendar in Outlook where you can click on a date and then it will open up your calendar at this date. This is very useful to me but when nearing the end of the month, it is becoming less useful as less future dates become visible.
Is there any way that I can view more months?

I have a mental block and can't find anything in Functions help to help solve my SIMPLE problem. Have an Access 2000 database. Want to have a query expression return the DAY NAME (like Monday, Tuesday, Friday) from the full date. That is, an expression similar to function([eventdate]) that will return the day name. For instance, function([8/23/07]=Thursday. What function will do that?

I am trying to create job status sheet, and I want the current date to show whenever a cell or row is added.

For example, If I put a job number in B2, I want the date(year, month, day) to show in cell A2 automatically. The IF formula is only formula I can think to use.
 

A:Solved: Using the IF formula to show current date

Just put the formula =Now() in the target cell. And each time the worksheet will be recalculated the formula will be updated, so no need in and if function.

In EXCEL (Office 2002) Is there a way to have a header that is auto matically updated to show the date the file was last edited(changed) ? . It should do this each time the file is edited(changed). Then when the file (.XLS) is emailed to someone and they print it, The last "edit(changed)" date will show .Currently the local date the file is printed is showing.
Manually editing the header is forgotten at busy times.
