Default Where Is "Ask Jim" When You Need Him? HELP!

One of my "don't miss" newspaper columns was Ask Jim, by Jim Coates fo Chicago, I believe it is. He retired a couple of months ago and there is just no one like him for relating to the average computer user.

Hopefully, someone here can help nme out.

Within the last week my PC, running XP, has suddenly decided it's been relocated across the Atlantic. It's using the European method of entering dates. Today, October 11, 2007 is showing as 11/10/07. Been that way for some days now.

I've gone into the Control Panel and reset the format in the Regional section, but after awhile it's back to the euro way.

The day in the calander when I right click on the time down in the lower right will be correct, but the date on files and such is "backwards." I use QuickBooks and it's a real pin there. I have to be particulary careful or I end up with invoice numbers way out of sequence according to the dates.

Any suggestions? This is the kind of thing Jim had down-pat.
