    I am experiencing a number of time anomalies in Mac OS X (AM-PM switches, change of date etc.) This seems to have happened since I installed Boot Camp and Windows XP. Also, when I set Sys Prefs Date and Time panel to "Set date and time automatically", System Prefs crashes with the "spinning beach-ball of death".

    Anyone else experiencing similar issues, or is it just me?
    Thanks

    i always knew that windows could never keep track of time, but i havent ever heard of anyone having problems with the time in OS X being wrong. Not sure if its an option for you, but can you remove the Windows Partition to see if it fixes the problem? But there are probably easier things to try to do to fix it first.
