    HI,
    I have XP-Pro.
    I am the administrator on the computer.
    Yesterday I was trying to look at the calender and tried to double-click on
    the time in the system tray and got an error message "You do not have
    the proper privilege level to change the system time"

    Any suggestions as to why this might be happeneing and possible solutions
    for this problem?

    Thanks!

    Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Local Security Policy -->
    Security Settings --> Local Policy --> User Rights Assignment

    See if Administrators has the right to change system time.

    If you are on a domain, a group policy object might be overriding your local
    policy settings.

    Hi,
    I tried the suggested slution...system gets stuck at the "User Rights
    assignment" and I cannot see anything. Have to reboot the system at this
    point. I have waited for about 5 mins for something to show up when i go to
    User Rights assignment. Should I wait longer than this?
    Any other options?
    Thanks for all the help

    No, it should be really quick to load up. Not really sure what the issue is
    here... something is corrupted maybe? Something is really really out of
    whack with your system. Depending on how much time you want to spend
    fiddling trying to figure this out, maybe an OS reinstall is in order.
    Sorry that I can provide more help there.... :)
