For some strange reason the clock in my taskbar now displays military time. No changes were made and the procedure to change it back (start, control panel, regional and languages, customize, time, h:m:ss tt) has no effect.

Any ideas what happened?

Malwarebytes turned up nothing and Superantispyware only flagged a few tracking cookies. AVG is set to run overnight.

The current time is 14:30

If your time is displayed as HH:mm:ss, it is 24 hour military time. hh:mm:ss is 12-hour time.

The odd thing is, I made no changes to cause this. It was working fine until 12:59 today, then it changed to 13:00.

OK this is weird. There's 4 options in setting the clock and I tried all 4 earlier several times with no change. Just tried again and now it's back to normal.

You are being tested by your computer. You'd better hope you pass.

I would be worried if it was 12:59 and then a minute later it became 14:00!


People who get confused or have hard time telling time due to military format cracks me up.
