With previous and the corrent version of MLS, on our stake computer we consistently get the error "MLS had detected that your system clock has been changed. Please log out. Set your system clock to the correct time. Log back into MLS. If you have trouble logging in, contact your stake clerk for assistance."

Our workaround is to log out and log back in. MLS will then continue to function properly for a random length of time, after which it will annoy us again with the error. We skip the "set the system clock" portion of the instructions because the clock is correct.

Does anyone else experience this? It's not the end of the world but it is annoying.

Yes, the computer is connected to the internet and no, the computer is not set to synchronize with an internet time server.

I experienced that problem on two ward computers. In both instances they would get that error message when coming out of hiberation or standby mode that had turned the hard drives off. The wards had left MLS running before church. When they came back after church to do something in MLS, they would get the error message. I changed the power configuration to always leave the hard drives on and have not experienced the problems since.

Disabled clock adjustment in Windows XP Pro

I have disabled clock adjustment in Windows XP Pro.

Go to:
(Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Local Security Settings)
1. Start | Run | SECPOL.MSC
2. Select "Local Policies" and "User Rights Assignments"
3. Double click on "Change System Time"
4. Remove all users from the list

Once this change is made (and the system rebooted), clicking on the time on the task-bar will no longer bring up the calendar, and will instead display a message that the user is not authorized to modify the system time.

Should the time need to be changed, it can be done by temporarily reversing the above change, setting the clock, and removing access again, or through the BIOS.
