Yeah, I would start with replacing the battery to see if that may help since you can get a new one for just a few dollars. The number is written on the back of the battery for which one to get, but it should be the normal type CR2032 as Dwarf posted above.

A new battery will probably solve your problem. If not I would recommend running security scans. I have read some place (Goggle, virus changing clock). They do this to try and stop you from updating your security programs.

Good point since when the clock changes my McAfee starts to require a renewal and have me jump through some hoops to do it but I noticed if I just reset the clock to current, the renewal notice goes away. What would you recommend as a good security sweep in terms of something like this?

First I would use your anti virus and then two programs I and many others recommend are Super Anti Spyware and Malwarebytes Anti Malware. I don't have any trust in McAffe. I use Webroot with Spy Sweeper but many use MSE from Microsoft and are pleased. MSE is free.
If you can't get on line in your normal fashion for updates try this. Start and type in the search,

Computer double beeping and changing date and time.
Hello. For the last few months almost every time I turn on my computer it will double beep(instead of one beep) and once I get to my desktop the date will go back to January 1st, 2011. If this is not the right spot to put this then please move it.

Time changing, date remains correct
At night, when I power down my Vista desktop, the time gets changed to the wrong time, but the date remains correct. Could this still be the CMOS battery? Thanks

Date/Time jumps after correct setting of date/time/timezone?
Have set the correct time zone, set the date and time, and within half an hour, the time jumps ahead significantly. Time then continues jumping periodically, and date as well. Any patch available for this? Thanks.
