    Hi, a problem drives me nuts.
    My default browser is FF3.6.5. Every time I save a picture with right click from a web site the file is saved with the wrong time/date stamp. Sometimes it occurs with Chrome too.
    The date shows 2-4 days ago sometimes it goes back a week. The time is mostly 12 hours behind system time. If its 6 am the time is saved as 12 pm...
    That issue does not occur if I set IE8 as default browser.

    My system time is correct.
    Any help is appreciated.

    That's an odd issue, but there are a few things ya can try.

    First, double click the clock in your systray and verify that the entire date, your region, and the DST settings are all set correctly.

    If everything is already set as it is supposed to be, I'd suggest restarting your system and entering your BIOS, and checking the time listed in your BIOS.

    If you change the time in your BIOS, yet some time after the computer had been turned off that it changes itself again then your computer may need a new CMOS battery.

    If IE 8 is set as default browser that issue will not occur. It occurs if FF is the default browser.
