My date is correct but I am 5 hours ahead. I went to the system controls and set it for auto but it continues to show 5 hours ahead( Yes I did the time zones). And when I set manually, it shows the correct time but my email shows 5 hours ahead. Huh?
I think suRoot is thinking we are in the Windows area here. Macs have a Date/Time control panel that may be found in the System Preferences menu off the Apple Menu.
Hmm. If you are sure that your computer is in the correct time zone, and you are syncing with the clock, you can try to reset the PRAM settings. That will zap out your customizations, meaning you may have to go through the control panels again, but it might be just what you need.
Boot the computer, and right after the "BONG" hit CMD-OPTION-P-R and the computer will BONG again. Let it BONG 2 or three times. release. The PRAM will be reset to default, and you can go in there and set the preferences again.
