Date and Time

by saihib In reply to Date and Time

Windows 95/98 doesn't have a clue as to what time it is. The OS gets its D & T data from the clock on the motherboard. You can password protect the BIOS to keep users from messing around with that. However, users will still be able to change the D &T in Windows, temporarily. Once the machine is restarted it will go back to the correct date and time. If I find a way to control it through Windows I will surely make another post. Rest assured, though, thousands of other TechRepublic members are working on this issue as you read this.

Removing this file accomplishes two things: 1.It removes the Date & Time applet from the Control Panel and 2. When a luser clicks on the clock in the bottom right corner of the screen nothing happens

if you are running a network with nt server, you can set the server up with a "time source service" (see microsoft kb Q131715) and then using a kixtart logon script you can set the wks time to that of the server, at every logon.
