    Is my copy of Windows 7 out of support?

    Just fired up this standby Spare PC, it reported the time/date were out of sync.

    Well its only 1 Hour 10 Minutes, 7 Days, 4 Months and 4607 Years out!

    Think Microsoft will still cover it under extended support?

    That's weird, as you'd expect the oldest date to be when the motherboard was manufactured, such as 1995 for example. It can't possibly go back in time, so it's baffling why the year wouldn't start with a 1 or 2 at the very least!

    Don't laugh - the way we're going the same will happen to pensioners on the NHS.

    'Sorry you're out of support now'. Best we can do is some paracetamol!!
