> Subject: Windows Y2K problem

> Dear Friends,
>
> I got this note from a friend and when I checked my own system, I
> found that I had the problem and was vulnerable. The fix is easy to
> implement.
>
> For those of you running Windows this is a fix for a small Y2K
> problem almost everyone should do. After running this quick little
> test, much to my surprise, I learned that my computer would have
> failed on 01-01-2000 due to a computer clock glitch. Fortunately, a
> quick fix is provided, should your computer fail the test.
>
> I submit the following for your consideration:
>
> TEST:
>
> Double click on "My Computer".
> Double click on "Control Panel".
> Double click on "Regional Settings" icon.
> Click on the "Date" tab at the top of the page.
>
> Where it says, "Short Date Sample" look and see if it shows a
> "two digit" year. Of course it does. That's the default setting for
> Windows 95, Windows 98 and NT. This date RIGHT HERE is the date that
> feeds application software and WILL NOT rollover in the year 2000. It
> will roll over to 00.
>
> Click on the button across from "Short Date Style" and select the
> option that shows, mm/dd/yyyy. (Be sure your selection has four Y's
> showing, not just two).
>
> Then click on "Apply" and then click on "OK" at the bottom.
>
> Easy enough to fix. However, every single installation (yy) of
> Windows
> worldwide is defaulted to fail Y2K rollover.
>
> How many people know about this? How many people know to change
> that?
> What will be the effect? Who knows! But this is another example
> of the
> pervasiveness and systematic nature of the problem.
>
> Please pass this on to other people that you know who own home
> computers.
