  • can not change date format in 2000 pro

    I have server 2003 with users on 2000 and xp. On one user i can not change date format M/d/yy to MM/dd/yyyy via the drop down window in regional settings. It gives me error that i have an illegal character in line. I tried administor mode on both network and my compter. still the same. the only thing I could find was a registry change from Microsoft help. this did not work. I can change on other stations. whatam i missing? Thanks for any help

    Is the computer using a nonstandard (non US English) Keyboard?

      Thanls for reply,

      I have a stanard english keyboard. After I posted, I have a felling that I have a corupted file/files and most likey will need to reload entire system or whatever.

      I may just upgrade to xp.

      Thanks

        Have you tried typing the format into the date display line?
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
        2 2 1 1 2
