It might help to configure your machine to synchronize with an ntp server. Some seconds off might be enough to kill the login. Look up in a manual how to do this with your OS.

NTP is network time protocol, it keeps the clocks in computers around the globe consistant. Of course it can have other problems but my first guess when someone tells me my clock is off is: To check if my clock is on time.

Can you double check that the time and date is in fact set correctly on your computer.
Double check that the correct year is also set.

Which Firewall & antivirus software are you using on your system?
Can you test temporarily disabling your Anti-Virus/Firewall protections, rebooting the computer and then try to log in to Second Life. IF you try this please completely close all other open programs so that nothing is trying to get on the internet while your security is disabled.
Do you still get the computer clock login error?

Are you logging into Second Life through a Public wi-fi connection (e.g. a Cafe or Starbucks) or through a university or college network or are you using a standard home connection?

If you are logging into Second Life through a Public wi-fi connection with a proxy or portal that requires you to login or accept their Terms of Service before you can fully utilize their internet, you must open a browser and try loading a website like "http://purple.com" and then see if the Cafe's portal opens. If so login to that first and then try to log in to Second Life.

How old is your machine? There is an extra battery on the mainboard to store "default values", so to speak, for your machine. If it is dying, the internal clock might return incorrect values.

However... there are a few other links in regards to that error. After you have worked through Whirly's post and you still can't login, have a look at these:

http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Error_messages

https://singularityviewer.atlassian.net/browse/SV-525 

 

As one of the pages state, the clock hint might be misleading and you could actually be suffering from a different issue.

More details about your hardware and software will be helpful.

You also have to use the correct time zone. Computers work on Universal Time so they do not have to deal with time zones among themselves. The time zone allows the computer to display your local time for the nearby carbon-based life forms. It also uses the zone to change whatever time you tell it to UT. 

If you get the time zone wrong your computer sets the wrong UT time. Then you are out of sync with all the devices on the net. The SL system picks up on this and realizes something is wrong.

found something in old posts here  : costs only a few cts when you dare to do it yourself, change the battery on your MB

 

I doubt SL support will be able to help you with problems on your machine.

Your account is safe on LL servers, your pc won't cause trouble in that.
