    Anyone have any idea why the date on my PC keeps jumping a month??
    It says its April so I set it back to March then for no reason at all it goes back to April again :confused:

    The months fly by too quick as it is :D

    i had my ps jump up to 2031 once and have no clue why. it wasn't a virus it was just a random bug i guess. many of my programs refused to work when that happened.

    correct, messed up time and date is usually fixed by replacing the battery, they're not exactly expensive.

    Occasionally "time stamped" software such as Go Back does cause interference with Windows Time/date mechanisation, as well.

    Sometimes its user error, open date and time to see a future date for that month or year, then click OK, I've seen my brother do it once.
