Did you just now take that screenshot? If so perhaps you may be getting the error due to the date on your computer. Is your date off? Or are you showing the DD/MM/YYYY. Just a thought....

Great minds think alike!

I don't know diddly squat about computers, but I also noticed that your date format is in "European" format.

FWIW, I just opened my event viewer, and the date format is US: "5/10/2012".

That kinda makes sense when you read the text of your error message about dates not being correct, etc.

I assume that would also contribute to your Windows Updates problems and potentially other programs having trouble updating.

When the system date/time are "off", that screws up lots of things...

OK, now I'll let the pros help, :)

aah no the error message is from that time i noticed it when i restarted my computer following your advice about the windows updates so the message is a few hours old at this time.

and the computer has always shown the date like that ( i got my computer from dell and the date has always shown like that and it is set for eastern time zone)

funny enough though when i mouse over the clock it says may-10-2012

Thursday

so maybe it is different meh i dont know how to fix it but its always been like that

It's not the time that's off, but the DATE.

BTW, there will be 1000s, if not millions, of "events" in the event viewer.

Unless you're troubleshooting a specific issue and have expert help, I've always found it to be an unnecessarily stressful and generally unhelpful endeavor to go leafing through them all.

Especially without the help of someone who knows how to interpret the gobbledy gook.

That's odd -- are you in Europe?

I've had 5 or 6 Dells in the US and they've never come with a European date setting.

I know that one can change it in the Control Panel, but I've never had to do that.

The convention in the US is MM/DD/YYYY, while in most of the rest of the world, it's DD/MM/YYYY (which is what your computer shows).

I have no idea if the date format can screw things up as badly as having a wrong date or time... :(

OK, well, this is clearly out of my range of expertise.

Sorry for butting in -- I just happened to make the same observation that Firefox did, and he knows FAR more than I.

So, I thought we might be on to something.

Hope you get it sorted,

But the date isn't wrong it is the 10 of may 2012. I live in canada and the laptop has never left the city nevermind the country.

i did go into the calender settings and reset it to default it still shows the clock as 10/05/2012

also it appears that canada uses all 3 date representations so mine isnt "wrong"

its interchangible aparently

Canada?!?!?!

That likely explains it. :D

What is the convention for writing dates there?

I gather it's the same as the rest of the world (DD/MM/YYYY).

Only we oddballs in the US use MM/DD/YYYY. :lol:

Well, so much for that theory...

yep turns out we use all 3 so its not so bad

also the sites edit button is broken you have t ouse the full editor to even be able to edit stuff
