We have had numerous PCs have their time change to Dec 31, 2069 mysteriously, and then will not login.  We thought it was a time problem with our windows Active Directory domain controllers, but that time was correct.

I have searched the internet and all known virus-related sites searching for a virus or something with no luck.  Can someone help out?  Has anyone seen this before?

The screen will start at CTL-ALT-DELETE, then you press CTL-ALT-DELETE to put in your credentials, and the PC sits there and eventually throws you back to the CTL-ALT-DELETE.  The PCs are current with their McAfee Virusscan software...

Any assistance is greatly appreciated...
