Windows 7: All document show as modified 'A long time ago'

08 Jan 2012   #1

windows 7 Pro 64
All document show as modified 'A long time ago'

Documents can be filed in Explorer by a drop down arrow on the right of the screen. I choose to file by 'date modified'. In XP this used to be a handy guide to distinguish recent files from those made years ago.

In my Documents folder, with 'date modified' chosen as the filing mode, all documents are grouped as 'A Long Time Ago' - even files composed a few days ago.

Can anyone suggest a reason for this or a way to restore the helpful grouping by date that was available in XP?
