Windows 7 64-Bit
Problem Solved

I know that there have been many causes of the problem I described here. HP insisted that it was the mother board as changing the CMOS battery didn't resolve the issue. Personally, I didn't think it was the CMOS battery as the date and time was always correct even though it was incorrectly displayed in the task bar.

They wanted to send me a box with a return label to send it back for warranty repair; they were very slick. You see, I have an on site warranty where the technician is supposed to come to my home. It was only after I pointed that out that they offered to send someone.

I decided I would reinstall the OS. I really believed it was something I picked up off the web. Apparently, I was right as I've done a fresh install and the time has been true for a week.

Thank you to all that pitched in to help.
