"VIRUS ALERT!" message shows up beside the time in the task bar/system tray.
You may also see this message when you bring up a command prompt and do a directory list (dir) command.
This is caused by a piece of spyware/malware editing the registry and changing the local time display entry.
Find the following registry key:
Right click on the key and edit it as appropritate.
The default setting should be "h:mm tt" for the United States without the quotes.
Having an upper case H will cause the time to display in 24 hour format.
