Date format keeps changing

By Choppit ·
Anyone know why my W2K system insists on reverting back to short date format MM/DD/YYYY. Each time I set to format DD/MM/YY under regional options the system will be fine for a few days but then change the date back to MM/DD/YYYY. Originally I was using an MSI KT7 motherboard and suspected the BIOS. Updating the BIOS didn't cure the problem. Due to motherboard failure some months later it was replaced with a KT3. W2K was clean installed but the problem still occurs. The system in question is connected to NT4 domain and Netware 5.1. SP3 is applied and the current BIOS is up to date.

Are you or one of your users using an automatic time update program?

If so, double check the settings for the program.

It may be forcing your system to use it's default format.

Battery is good. Current mobo is only 3 weeks old. All CMOS settings remain unchanged.

The user profile springs to mind, are you logging on as the same user? Are you using mandatory user profiles? Try logging on as an administrator and changing the default regional settings.

I am the only user and log onto the same account each time.

Time updates are managed by the NW client. I guess I need to disable updates to find out although for whatever reason the problem occurs less frequently now (approx every 2 weeks)
