    I don't know how to edit my old question so here it is again

    The system clock shows correct date and time. When I save a new file (in
    nuance pdf converter) the files save with a 2007 date. Saved in word and got
    the correct date. Copied a folder from 1 computer to another and the file
    date is in 2007 files inside have the date they were created. Saved a new
    file in word pad and got the 2007 date.

    You cannot edit existing questions but you can respond to them (which is
    much better than starting a new thread on an existing subject).

    As I said in my reply to your initial question: Let's see how exactly you
    generate the problem file. In this particular case: Please expand in a
    step-by-step manner your observation of "Saved a new file in word pad and
    got the 2007 date". Do it in such a manner so that an ignoramus like me can
    blindly follow your steps and (presumably) get the same result.

    So, what you are saying is that your "nuance pdf converter" software and
    supposedly wordpad (in your Windows XP ____ Edition with Service Pack _,
    __-bit system - fill in the blanks, please) save with the incorrect date but
    your "Microsoft Word ____" saves with the correct date on the same system?

    Start button --> RUN --> type in:
    winver
    --> Click OK.

    Top part (picture) gives you the full name/edition of the OS and the bottom
    parts (starting with the word "Version") will give the rest of the story
    other than whether or not it is a 32-bit or 64-bit OS. However - if you
    *have* SP3 installed - you have a 32-bit version of Windows XP as there has
    not been (probably will not be) a SP3 for 64-bit Windows XP Professional
    Edition x64. If you do not have SP3 installed (for whatever reason; know
    your support ended July 13, 2010 if you have 32-bit Windows XP without SP3)
    but are unsure what architecture you have (32-bit or 64-bit) - you can
    figure that out: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827218

    After that, perform the following test...

    Start button --> RUN --> type in:
    cmd /C date /T >> "%userprofile%\Desktop\CurrentDate.txt"
    --> Click OK.

    Find the "CurrentDate.txt" text file on your desktop (you just created it)
    and right-click on it and choose "Properties". What is the "Created",
    "Modified" and "Accessed" dates listed for the text file "CurrentDate.txt"?

    Now *open* the "CurrentDate.txt" text file - what is the date in the content
    of the text file "CurrentDate.txt"?

    I created a new file in note pad and saved it it saved with the 2007 date. it
    appears the 2007 date time conitines like regular time the time and date
    continue like regular time. the clock times (2007) off by is about 8 hours.
    When I make a new folder it give it the 2007 date. In properties it gives
    the 2007 as date created. When I make a new document and save it it saves as
    the 2007 date. When I create a new document in word it save it with the
    correct date. XP pro all updates installed

    Any other Ideas?

    So, what you are saying is that your "nuance pdf converter" software and
    supposedly wordpad (in your Windows XP pro____ Edition with Service Pack 3_,
    32__-bit system - fill in the blanks, please) save with the incorrect date
    but
    your "Microsoft Word 2007____" saves with the correct date on the same system

    I created a new file in note pad and saved it it saved with the 2007 date.
    it appears the 2007 date time conitines like regular. time the time and date
    continue like regular time. the clock times (2007) off by is about 8 hours.
    When I make a new folder it give it the 2007 date. In properties it gives
    the 2007 as date created. When I make a new document and save it it saves as
    the 2007 date. When I create a new document in word it save it with the
    correct date.

    I can smell a rat but I do not know where it is. Please save the code below

    You will get a notepad screen. Please paste its contents into your reply. If
    the dates are still wrong, reboot in Safe Mode, then double click the batch
    file again.

    Do not retype this code - use copy & paste instead!

    Sounds like Windows is using the month 07 (July) as the year. I will
    believe that as of Sunday, the year will be treated as 08 (2008)

    I'm not sure when this started I have files dated starting 11/01/2007 and
    today 11/06/2007

    I ran the bat file again. I saved a couple of files in wordpad and had
    correct date. Created a new folder on the desktop and had correct date.
    Draged and dropped in a folder with another folder haveing the old date and
    the new folder changed date to the old date.

    What do I do next?

    When I run the batch file I posted then I get this output:
    ==========================
    Sat 31/07/2010 22:38
    Volume in drive C is System
    Volume Serial Number is 14CD-FD33

    Directory of C:/Users\xxx\Desktop

    31/07/2010 22:38 23 test.txt
    1 File(s) 23 bytes
    0 Dir(s) 44,803,751,936 bytes free
    =========================
    The output you post looks like this:
    =========================
    Windows
    Fri 07/30/2010 15:38 dir "C:/Documents and
    Settings\Duane\Desktop\test.txt"
    =========================

    One might say that any resemblance between the two outputs is purely
    coincidental. I do not know where your text comes from and am therefore
    unable to comment.

    Open "Control Panel", "Regional and Language Options", "Regional
    Options" tab, and change the language and region settings to your
    preferred format. In the US, mine read:

    English (United States)

    Short date: 7/31/2010
    Long date: Saturday, July 31, 2010

    Location
    United States
