    Hi folks,


    How to change the date to an old day/a future day temporarily? The system clock always changes it back to the date of today. TIA

    Hi kemical,

    Yes I did. I found the cause.

    Win7 is running on a VM (guest) of Oracle VirtualBox (VBox). The date and time is controlled by the host's OS. On changing the date and time of the host, Win7 (VM) will be updated automatically. I can't change them on Win7.

    Thanks
