Quick Tip for Making Your PC Y2K Compliant
by Steve Elliott
Is your PC Y2K compliant?
You may think your PC is "Y2K" compliant, and some little tests may have actually affirmed that your hardware is compliant, and you may even have a little company sticker affixed to your system saying "Y2K Compliant" ...but you'll be surprised that Windows may still crash unless you do this simple exercise below. I know that I had not thought of this and my home computer and work computer would have failed Jan 1, 2000. An easy fix, but something Microsoft seems
to have missed in certifying their software as Y2K compliant.
This is simple to do but VERY important.
- Click on "START."
- Click on "SETTINGS."
- Double click on "Control Panel."
- Double click on "Regional settings" icon (look for the little world globe).
- Click on the "Date" tab at the top of the page. (last tab on the top right)
Easy enough to fix. However, every "as distributed" installation of Windows worldwide is defaulted to fail Y2K rollover... Pass this along to your PC buddies ... no matter how much of a guru they think they are ... this might be a welcome bit of information!
