I have a Deep Freeze 6 installed on Windows 7 and because of that I can't adjust the Date and Time of Windows 7 even if I Thawed the drive, so the question is there a way to adjust the Date and Time of Windows 7 with Deep Freeze installed on the computer?

If anyone can help, Thanks!

Right click on the bottom right portion of your taskbar, over the date / time area and you'll see "adjust date / time" button. Click on it, and do the needful.

I mentioned I have a "DEEP FREEZE SOFTWARE INSTALLED" that's why I can't modify the Date/Time of Windows 7, It's locked!

Nothing personal but read the question carefully!

As a matter of interest, why have you installed Deep Freeze? It's normally the sort of thing that is installed on corporate or school machines to stop users messing with them. Anyway, if you installed it the manual should tell you how to override any restrictions.

Or is this a corporate machine that has been locked down by an administrator? If so there's probably a good reason why they don't want you to mess with it. I can't advise you on bypassing restrictions that your System Administrator has placed on your computer.

TBH, there should be no need to alter the time/date on a Windows machine nowadays. It should be configured to synchronize the time automatically via the Internet.

Are you joking? Everyone knows Google except those that still live in caves!

I have used Google and didn't find anything that's why I post the question here.

Well, either you have installed software that limits what you can do on your computer, and are now complaining that you are limited in what you can do on your computer, or you are trying to circumvent restrictions placed on the computer by its owner. Which is the case?

Did you ever hear of a web site called Google? It's quite useful. Putting in "Deep Freeze 6" yields this web page as the third result:

Yeah, I get the Sarcasm.

Hey I'm just being polite here and don't want to pick a fight, but there are those people who got nothing to do but start a fight. I've got a simple question and if you don't know the answer just don't answer and that's it.

Clearly the people who replied to this thread are not being helpful at all so I'm gonna unsubscribe to this thread, reply any colorful sarcastic remarks you want but it'll be useless because I'm not gonna be visiting this thread anymore!!

HAHAHA!

um, I posted a link to an answer to the question, which you would have found on your own if you had used Google or probably any other search engine appropriately. The fact that you do not consider your question answered implies that you do not have access to the BIOS password, and thus you are probably trying to bypass security measures on somebody else's PC.

To Change the Date Display

1. In the Customize Regional Options dialog box, click the Date tab to specify any changes you want to make to the short date and the long date.
2. If you do not see the format you want in the Short date or Long date boxes, use the following guidelines:
* To display single-digit numbers without a leading zero, type d for the day setting, type y for the year setting, and type M for the month setting.
* To display leading zeros with single-digit numbers, type dd for the day setting, type yy for the year setting, and type MM for the month setting.
* To display the last two digits of the year, type yy for the year setting.
* To display four digits for the year, type yyyy for the year setting.
* To display abbreviations for the day or month, type ddd for the day setting and type MMM for the month setting.
* To display the full name of the day or month, type dddd for the day setting and type MMMM for the month setting.
* To display additional text, type single quotation marks (') around text.

3. To specify how your computer interprets two-digit years, on the Date tab, under When a two-digit year is entered, interpret it as a year between, type or click the year that you want to configure this setting to end at.
