My system is about 4 months old. Every couple of days my clock reverts to 1200 1st Jan 2000. My thought is that the battery is faulty and will need replaced. Could it be anything else?

I am not aware of any such virus. I was using the term loosly, thinking that with a 4 month old machine you would probably be running XP and it comes with a time synching client. So mostly it is just a possibility to add to the list ...
