Are you on a Domain?

The administrator cannot even logon to the Local Computer Console?

Have you tried resetting the Date/Time in the Bios?

A Simple reboot should cause it to resync with the server.

reboot will not work - if she is logging on to a domain, the time on th local pc forms part of the Kerberos authentication - if it don't match, she 'aint getting in.

Caddlady, Trenes are right, if you cannot change the time on the client machine, you have a problem

If it's part of the domain, w32tm syncs with the DC on reboot.

You definately need to get the time changed on the client machine before it can log onto the domain - have you tried safe mode.

It is possible to amend the system date & time from the command line - type time to amend the time or date to amend the date. You may be able to telnet in to do this?

Well it worked...As simple as that...Just unplugged the computer from the network and set the right date and then plug the computer on the network again and it worked

Not very professional...But as long as it's working

OK, so several people here said that the date/time needed amending, you did this and it worked so you need to award the points and grade (or split the points)

You should prohibit the option to set the system time in a Group Policy.
Thats professional!
