I've been taking a computer course at the "Y"
and learned that every single installation of Windows worldwide is defaulted to
fail Y2K rollover. Here is how to fix it yourself:
Double click on "My Computer."
Double click on "Control Panel."
Double click on "regional Settings"
Click on the "Date" tab at the top of the
Where it says, "Short Date Sample" look and
see if it shows a "two-digit" year. Of course it does.
That's the default setting for Windows 95, Windows 98
This date RIGHT HERE is the date that feeds application software and WILL
NOT rollover in the year 2000. It will roll over to 00.
Click on the button across from "Short Date Style" and select the
Option that shows, mm/dd/yyyy.
(Be sure your selection has four Y's showing, not just two). Then click on
"Apply" and then click on "OK" at the bottom.
Easy enough to fix.
