Hotmail timestamp always waaay off.

Q: Hotmail timestamp always waaay off.

Anyone know how to fix the fact that emails coming into your Hotmail account are always about 8 hours off?

Yeah, yeah, I know...subscribe to Gmail. But seriously....

Preferred Solution: Hotmail timestamp always waaay off.

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.)

A: Hotmail timestamp always waaay off.

Check your Windows Live account settings, there may be a region or time zone setting, otherwise it may default to GMT.

At least I think it is. I did a search here for cpu temp and got a gazillion post results and read through a few. I was switching tabs in Firefox when it stopped responding. I could move my mouse and open the start menu but I could not, for instance, open up Display Properties. I couldn't even bring up the process list w/Ctrl Alt Del...nothing happened. I also couldnt shut down from the Start Menu. So I manually restarted and got a message like something to do w/the hardware; see Power menu for details...

So went into the BIOS setup and Power and saw my cpu temp was in red at 167F. And actually I recently cleaned some dust out of a couple fans.

Should I clean out everything again? Or is my hardware failing? This never happened before since I got this PC and I've had it for a bit over 3 years.
Please advise soon!!

I went to the gmail sign-in page on my significant other's Kindle Fire, and as I started typing in my info, an unfamiliar email address ([email protected]) was auto-populated for me. I tried to sign in just for the hell of it but the password wasn't saved. "John" said that he had never heard of that email address before and had no idea where it came from. Maybe a week or so later, the same thing happened again, but the email address was my 6 year old son's first and last name, followed by the number 68. This time the password had been saved so I logged in. It looked like the account was new and hadn't been used yet, but some settings we're in place. specifically that the backup account was London-based68. Again, "John" said that he had never heard of either address. Am I correct in thinking that he 100% had to have created both accounts?

I'm using Windows XP and Office 2000.

When doing a document I set my margins to 1'' left and right. When I print I get an error message saying:

"the margins are outside of the printable area." The prompt asks if I want to
fix or ignore.

No matter what I choose the document prints with everything shifted about 2.5" to the left with the first 4 letters of each line cut off.

In set up I set my margins to a defalt of 1" for all 4 margins. However, when I exit setup the margins go back to reading something totally different.

I am using an HP all in one printer. Could therer be an incompatability problem?

A:Word - Margins are Waaay Off!!

Hiya njgirlonline!

I dont think there is any compatability problem.

This issue is the exact prob of my bro.

On the Page Set Up Screen, go to the Paper tab and make sure Paper size is set to "Letter".
Click Apply then go to the Margins tab, set the margin to default again or any margin setting you want it to be set.

I'm trying to install Windows XP on a machine that was just put together. I started installing XP 4 or 5 hours ago. It's saying 37 minutes remaining right now. almost three hours ago it was at 39 minutes remaining. This isn't my first attempt installing xp on this machine. I've swapped out the HD, the CD drive, tested the memory and checked the jumpers. Everything appears to be okay in the bios (although i'm not an expert). Nothing seems to work. I'm sure it's not the CD, i used it earlier today on my machine with no problems. Any ideas what the problem could be?

Here's what's in it:

p4 2.0 processor
80 gig HD
ATI 64mb pci video card
sony cdrw drive
256 ram (pc2100)
i forget what brand the motherboard is

All the parts are ones that I've used in the past and never had any problems like this. Any advise would be appreciated.

A:installing xp taking waaay too long

I have heard of issues of installing XP with a cdrw drive, as well as dvd drives. If possible, try another cd drive. Also be sure to check that your slaves/masters are set correctly. (if drive is the only one on the IDE channel, it should be master.)

Ok i have no idea what's causing this but the windows clock in my system tray is flying. I synchonized it yesterday aroud 7pm and at like 11am this morning it was almost 5 minutes ahead three other clock i compared it to (cell phone, alarm clock, analog wall clock). So i resynchronized the PC again with the windows time server and it was back to within 20 seconds of the other 3. Now at 9:30 its around 3-4 minutes ahead again. Any ideas why the heck my PC cant keep time? I have not shut down at all so i dont think that it would be the battery but who knows. Anybody know what might be causing this? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks guys.

You might want to try changing the time in the BIOS. I think they had the same problem with the TS server. Instead of always changing the Windows time, boot to the BIOS (should be F2, or ESC) and change the time.

Last night I forgot and left my system turned on. This morning AVG7 gave me a Warning Interruption saying that Windows\System32\shell32.dll and Windows\System32\kernel.dll had changed. When I looked into the details of what had changed, the explanation was "TimeStamp, August 13, 11:28pm."

This appears to be some kind of change to my system, but I have no idea what "TimeStamp"
is related to, but more importantly, whether or not it's harmful.

Any constructive help will be greatly appreciated.

This was discussed in a previous (closed) thread, but i can't see that it was resolved.
I routinely use an ftp server located on the east coast (GMT-5). I sit in Hawaii, GMT-10. Server clock and my clock are both correct.

When looking at files on the server, I see timestamps that are essentially the equivalent of GMT-15. Two of us on the phone looking at the same file on the same server see different time stamps.

This is new since i began using Vista this week. Didn't happen with my prior XP machine. Any ideas?

I've just recently realized that copying folders to a backup hard drive resets their "created" date. Should my computer ever crash, all my backup files will state to have just been created on that certain date.

Me, being the organize-freak I am, have been looking for a solution so my backed up files can have the same time stamps as on my computer right now.

I've done a little searching, and have found that people always recommend Robocopy. Problem is, I can't understand a word of the tutorials. Is there anyone with a layman's explanation for how to run Robocopy to carry out what I want?

And also just for the heck of it, is Robocopy the only solution? Is there some sort of back up program on Windows 7 that can do that?


A:Timestamp/Robocopy help

Some of the other posters have had similar problems, book1245, so here are a couple of references to other posts that might offer a little bit of guidance:

There’s some help for you in this thread: "Date Modified" changes when copying... Take a look at the post from Bill2 which has, among other things, this site: How to copy or move files and folders whilst maintaining their original time date stamp. | TechHead.co.uk, (and offers advice about your Robocopy problem as well), and the post from Casca which offers this advice: In a command window, run [xcopy] with the following switches: /s/e/c/a/k/h.

I shipped a USB hard drive to a customer that has a WAV and WMA file on it. I had timestamped the WAV and WMA file with the same date/time, "Sept 20 1:00 pm". There is a reason we need the WAV and WMA file to have the exact same date/time.

The customer has Vista (64 bit), and lives in a time zone that is 3 hours ahead of me.

For the customer, the WMA file shows up "Sept 20 1:00 pm", and the WAV file shows up "Sept 20 4:00 pm".

Why did this happen, and anyone have any suggestions on how to fix it/ prevent it from happening? Troubleshooting tips? Could it be some kind of permissions issue? And basically, how can we get the files to have the same timestamp?

(Note: I simplified the problem a bit - assume that there are many files, and it's not practical for the customer to timestamp the files himself.)

Thanks, Andrew

This one is driving me nuts. Running Outlook Express 6.0 on XP sp3. The system clock and time zone are correct. When I send an email from another box, the received timestamp is off by 5 hours. (Except for DST, this is our GMT offset). If I retrieve the same email in Thunderbird, the timestamp is right.

Server time and zone are correct, as verified by viewing the same email in Horde online. The "sent" timestamp in OE is correct, but the "received" is not. We're using a dedicated server, and I changed the server time to see what would happen. This had absolutely no effect on the 5 hour difference displayed in OE. (Though the change showed up when the same message was checked in Horde).

I've looked, but found no settings in OE itself that might be causing this. Can anyone help? Thanks.

OE uses UTC - Universal Time Coordinate - which happens to be the same as GMT.

UTC is also found in Event Viewer and probably other stuff aswel.

A:Adding timestamp to images

Where do you want to add it?

As text appearing on the actual photo?
In the filename?

Are these photos from a digital camera? There is a timestamp embedded into these files. You can view it in Windows Explorer, by viewing 'Date Taken'.

Xnview, a free photo editor can do all these things using the embedded date. You can also batch process multiple photos.

I'm trying to insert a timestamp as part of a file name and I realized that there is something basic about a timestamp that I do not understand:

Assume the output for echo %time% is 16:13:07.91.

Why is echo %time:~3,2% equal to 13? Does the colon not count as a character? In %date% the slash (/) does count as a character.

A:Inserting a Timestamp into a File Name

Aha - got this one solved.

The 'trick' is that the first character on the left is in the zero-ith position, not the first position. If echo %time% is 16:13:07.91, the '1' in 16 is in the zero-ith position and the 6 is in the first position.

To see this, try echo %time:~0,1% and you'll find that the result is the first character in the current time.

Going back to my original question about the time 16:13:07.91: 1 is in the zero-ith position, 6 is in the first position, the colon [:] is in the second position and 1 is in the third position. That's why echo %time:~3,2% is equal to 13.

Think digital! In the digital world, 0 isn't 'nothing,' it's a unique number.

Now I understand why some people prefer to indicate the time and date in a batch file by counting backwards from the right instead of forwards from the left. No pesky '0' to confuse you.

I'm thinking about a following problem:
I need to synchronize time between multiple users, and also prevent them from lying about their time when they send certain important packets to the server (not every packet). I know that NTP solves first problem, but I've been wondering if it's possible to solve second one by enabling this option for those important packets and making sure time differences between user and first few routers he connects through stay close to constant.

I can't find much information on this option though, mostly stuff like "Internet timestamp is a forced option used for debugging purposes only!" which is a bit worrying. What issues might I run into with it?

Best regards.

I am a song writer and I would like to protect my compositions by simply adding a trusted timestamp to my mp3 files and prove that I am the first owner of it.

There is a couple sites for music registration in my country (I am from Brasil) that are offering this service but they charge $2.50 per song. I consider it a ripoff once I could find some online services for 15% of this value and even for free. The problem is that either the services I found didn't show to be reliable or it is not easy/intuitive to use.

The two I found for free OriginStamp (Trusted Timestamping with Bitcoin - OriginStamp) and True Timestamp (True Time Stamp - Timestamping Authority) aren't actually file 'timestampers' – or else I didn't understand how they work. As far as I could see after you submit your file (in my case I tried either mp3 and zip ones) they just generate a hash code, probably based on the file header because they do it as soon you submit it. Therefore NOTHING is attached to the file, so it is not certificated. The only thing that's done is that a verification hash is generated and the timestamp is added to the hash and not to the file. Other problem that I noticed is that if I try to check the hash created by OriginStamp with the True Timestamp checking tool the time doesn't match; ... Read more

When i modify a file, e.g. a jpeg photo, the timestamp in 'My Computer' shows the time modified as being an hour ahead of the time it was actually modified. The time on my laptop is, and always has been correct, automatically updating for daylight saving, but 'My Computer' is incorrect.

this was happening before the recent change in daylight saving, a few weeks ago it was roughly 50 minutes out, so I guess it seems to be gaining time?

Can anyone assist? Many thanks.

Most likely the ntkrnlpa.exe error is due to improper symbols being loaded (or not loading at all) when running WinDbg. I didn't get that error when I ran your memory dump files.

That being said, there still isn't a whole bunch of useful information in the memory dump files.
FWIW - most times these sort of errors are due to malware - so I'd suggest running a couple of these free, online scans to rule that out: Malware

Also, please remove or update these older drivers that were loaded at the time of the crash. Don't use Windows Update or the Update drivers function of Device Manager.
Please use the following instructions to locate the most currently available drivers to replace the one's that you uninstall OR remove:

How To Find Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: http://www.carrona.org/drvrdown.html

Here's the older drivers. Please pay particular attention to any dated 2007 or ... Read more

Hi Guys,

I am running a batch file through the night to copy things between servers (using the xcopy command).

The files being copied are quite large (171MB) and I am wanting to know what time they finish copying over.

I have a Pause command at the end of the script which allows me to see that it has finished successfully when I arrive at work in the morning. Is there a way for it to insert a timestamp just before the pause to show the finishing time?

I have been using Window 8 Pro's "File History" feature for the past couple of months.  However, I recently had to start over due to a Bitlocker Issue.  I set everything the same as last time.  Yet, when I navigate into File History's
directory on the external drive (e.g., J:\FileHistory\user\Data\....) I see that Windows is now adding a UTC timestamp on all the files, such as "familyvacation(2013_02_23 20_47_36 UTC).mov".
My question is whether there is any way to remove the automatic addition of this time stamp information to the file name?  I don't recall this being present on the initial FileHistory backup I initially did. 

Any and all help is of course greatly appreciated. 
All the best,

Hi, we are migrating a very large amount of data and we are using robocopy. Everything seems to work fine but now we find  thousands of files having the time stamp reset to 1-1-1980.
After many many tests we now sure the the /B switch is causing this issue (in our case).

But we MUST use the /B switch. Otherwise we will have big problems with access denied errors. to user data.
Now my question is how to solve this issue and keep using the /B switch.
The cmd line we are using is:
robocopy "%source%" "%target%" /MIR /NODCOPY /COPY:DAT /DCOPY:T /r:0 /w:0 /mt:32 /tee /v /fft /np /TIMFIX /xa:sh /xd $RECYCLE.BIN /log+:x:\mylogs\copylog.log
Please help!!!!

Netscape is changing the time stamp on its bookmarks file every time Netscape is run, even when the user makes no changes to the bookmarks. To be clear, no changes are made to the bookmarks file, yet the time stamp is always equal to the exact time Netscape was last closed.

Is there a way to get Netscape to leave as is the time stamp on its bookmarks file when no changes are made by the user?

Hi All,

Been facing BSOD few times in a day.

Here's the scenario, previously everything was ok until remove my anti virus and some other files which i forgotten. and the BSOD appears, when i install a different AV, the problem still appears, when i view youtube video, BSOD again. when i watch video files, BSOD. when i run too many tasks - BSOD again.

mostly it says BAD POOL CALLER.

after all these BSOD, i tried update my graphic driver, and its still BSOD.

fed up, i formatted my drive and start everything from scratch.
so for fresh start in 5 days, i turn off windows update, never install AV and just run it by default and see how it goes. so far so good. no BSOD.

so next when i install AV, few days later it's BSOD again. so i removed it and do a Windows System Restore. so temporary no more AV. and i proceed to install
my canon printer driver and a software image viewer. it's BSOD again.

so i try downloading debugging software and open up the dump file and only says some error as shown below (i don't know what's that means)

unable to verify timestamp for ntkrnlpa.exe
also attached the dump file for you to review as instructed in forum.

Appreciate any of your kind advise.

My OS: Windows 7 ultimate x32 bit
Machine: Toshiba Portege T110 laptop.
Thank you!

A:BSOD - unable to verify timestamp for ntkrnlpa.exe or whatever

I would like to add a field to the end of my table called Timestamp. I want this field to be populated with the current time if a record is updated. I know I can set the default to =Now(), but that only sets the time and date the record is created. If I go in an update this record, that time or date does not change. Is there a way to inset a time and date that would automatically change? If not, is there an easier way then to just type in the time and date manually? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit, Opteron 2280

These system events
6009 = OS Version

6005 = Event Log service has started

6013 = system uptime

are being inserted into the system even log (before system was last shutdown) apparently just above event 50037 DHCPv4 Client service is stopped.
According to the timestamps. The rogue events should appear after Directory-Services-SAM 16962. which has an earlier timestamp than event 6009 which should be the very first entry after the previous shutdown event.

I hadn't noticed this before but it's been there since I installed and activated it last year. At first I thought it might be an infected WLAN driver, but security software (including MSRT) has not picked up anything abnormal.

Fast Startup is disabled. It made no difference when it was enabled.

What might be the cause of this behaviour?

I am using the 2007 version of excel.
I want excel to timestamp when an individual fills out a particular cell. Essentially, I am using it to timestamp an electronic signature so I want the timestamp to appear and an adjacent cell.

I've tried a couple of suggestions posted online but nothing seems to work as described.

Any advice?
