For the past month the date & time are changed when I start my computer, an HP Pavilion Elite m9077c with Vista.It doesn't happen everytime, but about 2/3 of the time. I can't download my email until the date is corrected, I get onscreen messeges that Windows media player won't work, & the status of Norton antivirus is frequently changed to "not protected". After restoring the correct date everything seems OK. What is going on? Is this the cms battery going bad , does my computer have a virus?When I run the Hardware diagnostic tool in the PC help & tools folder I get no indication that the cms battery is bad.

As the CMOS battery is supposed to retain date and time, and that is the issue, I would replace it.
