For some reason the date likes to change automatically to 1 day ahead.  It seems to do this randomly.  The time is not affected by this.  Any ideas?

usually it's a cmos battery that is fading. try changing it (less than $5 usually) you can get them at radio shack or most computer stores.

It could also be if you are on a lan, the lan settings can affect your clock and date, although it usually does not do it to such a drastic measure, but it happens. But I would say your best bet is the cmos battery on your moterboard, however, usually when it is that, which makes me think it is not, it causes more than that, like not being able to boot up and stuff. Hope this helps, if not email me. agvannes@longwood.lwc.edu

If on an NT network, have you tried using the NET TIME command to sync the computer with your PDC or a server that is correct and see if that holds?  Another thing to try, is change the time/date within CMOS, not just by typing DATE or TIME.  Hope this helps.
