Question

Check to be sure that the YEAR is correct, not just the day and month.  Also, check that your clock is set correctly to your local time zone.  Some functions will not work properly if your computer thinks that you are in New York because you forgot to change the time zone after you moved to Denver.

Two more things to check ...

If you are still using Windows XP, you will have a really hard time logging in.  XP is not supported by either Linden Lab or Microsoft now, and it will probably kick up a clock error (among other things).

If absolutely nothing else helps, check the CMOS battery on your motherboard.  It may be failing (or dead).  One of its main funtions is to keep the computer's internal clock ticking, even when its power is off.  You might need to have a professional change it.

I am wondering if the other answer helped you. It is strange that I have the same trouble with login. My clock is fine, year, time zone etc. At least on my desktop. But the time I see on this forum is 3 hours later.
