Try the Date & Time Shell Extension from
http://www.essi.fr/~berger/programs/shdate.zip
It states that:
"This shell extension add a page to the property sheet dialog box that the shell displays for a file. The new page allows you to change the file creation and last modified date & time."

If you want to change the date of one file, go into Start, Settings, Control Panel, Date/Time.  Change your system date,
access the file you want to change (via Windows Explorer, left click on it to open it, then close it), then go back in a set your system time back to its original setting.  That will change
the date of the particular file.

ot1018: As fara as i know, this will not change time/date in exe files. Just in data files. The 'Date & Time Shell Extension' (freeware) will add a new shhet of information in any file properties allowing quick and easy alteration of dat and/or time. Is pretty easy to use and does the job.
