date and time

There's no real way to determine whether the date/time has been changed on a system.

If you are experiencing date/time changes on a system, that are unexplained, then I recommend that you first look at the CMOS battery and replacing it. If it is a Win98 machine and it is an older computer, that is the first way to go when trying to resolve date/time loss.

There is no way that I am aware of to track this particular item. If you are experiencing date and time loss you should check the CMOS battery for loss of voltage. Most of them are rated at 3.5v and my rule of thumb is to replace the battery if morethan 10% of the voltage does not register on a voltmeter. As far as securing the system, you can implement a CMOS password that will not allow any to access the BIOS to change the date and time there, and you can usually set a boot password in the BIOS as well. I would recommend also using policy editor to block access to your control panel to anyone but yourself. With all of these security features in place you should be able to minimize the chance someone could change the date and time on your computer.

The problem is not the pc but a user problem.We use this date/time to record daily activities,so there is a posiblity someone can create data in a past date by changing this date.

you can d/l some other clock utilties. TClock is a program to replace the boring clock in ur bottom right corner, u can set security, alarm and others on it. U can try that instead of normal so others can't change time and i dont think u can lose time, set it to get time from the atomic clock so it will never b wrong
