The CEO's laptop was having a few problems, one of which was that the virus scanner kept reporting that its definitions library was out of date, even after a successful online update.

It wasn't until I installed MS Project on it for her that I noticed the system date was set over a year into the future. The virus scanner would update, then check the date and think the definitions were a year out of date and naturally alert the user. I fixed the date and all was well.

As for how the system date was changed - like many things one encounters while working helpdesk, it remains one of those unsolved mysteries...
