    Hi;

    I switched off my Macbok Pro 2008 running Snow Leopard last night and all was fine.

    Just switched it on and recieved a message in a window on the desktop that my date was set to 2008. Ialso have two other windows asking permission for applications to connect to the internet: 'krb5dc' and 'cups-lpd' Airport has also forgotten my WLAN.

    Is this a CMOS battery problem AKAPC's or is this a virus

    Thanks

    It's not a virus, as no Mac OS X virus has ever existed in the wild.

    Try resetting NVRAM:
    If the problem still persists, you may have a problem with your backup battery.

    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.

    I followed some advice I found on the web ref using 'Verify Disk Permissions' in Disk Utility and after accepting several 'Do you want to allow XYZ application to accept incoming network connections' I have not had the same problem??

    Go to System Preferences > Security > Firewall > Advanced to review which apps are set to allow or block incoming connections.
