Date on MBP osx stays same!

Hi all!

The date and time are correct on my desktop but everywhere else it perpetually shows Aug 26th, 2:36pm? ie: all email has this date even if it was from 6 months ago, all applications say this date etc. Can someone shed light on how to fix this? I would so appreciate it!!

Hm, that is an odd problem but you might be able to fix this with repairing permission.
Open Disk Utility, select the disk you boot from and hit repair permissions.

Thank you for the advice. I tried your tip and unfortunately it didn't fix it
