It could be that the CMOS battery is failing, or the computer's internal clock is operating at the wrong speed.

In Windows, there should be a service to update the time and date from the internet. But if the Windows Time service is not running or the selected time/date server is dead, the computer won't automatically update the time and date. So there are at least 2 things to do. First is to enable the Windows Time service if it is disabled (set to Manual or Automatic) and then start it so that it shows as running in the Services applet. You get to the service by typing services.msc in the Run/Search box in the Start Menu, and scrolling down to Windows Time. If the service won't stay running, then you could have deeper issues and would need to troubleshoot those. Then one should click the clock in the corner, go to Change Settings, go to Internet Time, then go to Change Settings in there. Make sure the box is checked and go ahead and update it. If it fails, try again, and if it still fails, try a different server in the box and try again. Then click OK.

If you have folders and files with the year changed to 2010 how do you correct this?

First step is to check the internal clock/calendar on your computer and see that it has not been reset. This is usually the culprit. Change the date to 2006 and it should solve your problem. This is done through your control panel/date,time,regional settings.


Are there any disk recovery tools available for use online?

If your computer crashes, or its memory gets erased or lost, you can go online to find some programs to fix the problem. But an even easier way to do this is by starting your computer in safe mode, then finding the Restore file which can reset your computer to a specified date and retrieve your memory.


Does changing the date on your computer harm it?

Not at all. You're free to change the date to whatever you want it to be. Older computers were expected to have a problem when the date rolled over from 31/12/1999 to 01/01/2000 - because older machines only stored the last two digits of the date - meaning that, when the date rolled over to the new millennium, some computers reset the date back to 1980. This was solved by a small downloadable program.
