Mysterious Changing Time and Date

Has anyone come across this problem before or have any ideas how to stop it.
Nearly every time my daughter plays online games the PC clock somehow seems to get altered, mostly to 00:00
01/01/2000 but sometimes only by a few minutes.It is NOT set to pick up the time off the net and anyway its only when my daughter logs in and doesent happen to me or my other offspring. I've looked on the MS Knowledge Base but can find nothing even similar. Am I alone or has anyone else had this?

do you and your family share accounts or each have a separate account? if you have separate accounts then it is most likely that your daughter has unknowingly downloaded a piece of malware. do you have a virus checker?

I Dont Think So

Anti Virus is fully upto date and always on, plus regular online scans and 3 different spyware apps (am I paranoid?) so I dont think its malware,thanx anyway.
