Can you logon to the local computer and change the date?

Sorry trenes, I did not mean to repeat your post, had it typed in and did not hit the submit button before my phone rang :)

Problem is can't logon on the local computer

Commented:
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 I've unplugged the network cable and then changed the date since she was'nt connected to the server anymore

But thank you guys as I would keep some of your tricks in mind

See ya around
So what is the closure on this question?

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!
