Event Viewer logs show impossible (future) dates RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Event Viewer Application and System logs are set to show most recent events first. The most recent (top) Events have dates of 12/19/2010.  The oldest events (bottom) are dated 11/17/2011.  The logs are set to replace items over 7 days old when the maximum log size is exceeded.  I don't think new events are being added. The Microsoft Office Alerts log are logging events with good dates. 

    • I have run sfc /scannow without receiving any errors or notifications.
    • I have run a full Norton antivirus and spyware scan which found no threats other than tracking cookies.
    • The System date and time are correct.
    • I just now increased the log maximum sizes and some correctly dated events were recorded.

    The main reason I am concerned is I tried to do a System Restore to a 6/9/11 Checkpoint and it Responded "System Restore Incomlete."  "System was not changed"  How can I prevent this from occuring again?
