I'm not sure what your problem is, but I do know that there is a virus that will cause the same problem. Have you run a virus scan on your computer?

Virus

One common cause of this problem is viruses of the Magistr group of virus. I've seen a couple variants on desktops.

This is definately Magistrate and you are a few weeks away from major problems. Magistrate does have the ability to affect some CMOS settings and keep CMOS from being reflashed. Follow the links provided on the previous post and attempt to use the repair tools avialable. You may also want to look at using a disk utility to write zeros to the Hard Drive to wipe the drive clean. procrastination will just make life more difficult on you from what I've seen of this bug.
